Left Behind Games Announces Intended Name Change and Business Developments

MURRIETA, CA--(Marketwire - December 12, 2007) - Left Behind Games Inc. (OTCBB: LFBG), announced today that it intends to rename the company to better reflect its business as one of the fastest growing publishers in the Christian marketplace.

Recently, management and shareholders reconstituted a new Board of Directors as described in the company's previous filings. On December 3, 2007, the new Board of Directors met and reviewed the following items of business: the proposed name change to Inspired Media Entertainment, redrafting the corporate bylaws to best service shareholders, changing the company's domicile from Washington to Delaware, acquisition candidates, new distribution channels both domestically and abroad, and compensation packages for employees and key relationships.

The company has also established over 1,400 direct-to-store relationships as it expands its direct sales and marketing efforts into the Christian marketplace, a sector which has thousands of retailers. This number surpasses the company's previous guidance of 1,000 set earlier this year.

Furthermore, as part of its grass-roots marketing efforts, the company has distributed more than 150,000 gold-ticket coupons to churches and ministries for the purpose of increasing product sell-through at retail. This initiative has progressed ahead of schedule.

The company has engaged Network One Financial Securities as its investment bank.

In anticipation of holiday sales, LEFT BEHIND: Tribulation Forces™ and three Charlie Church Mouse™ products have been released to retailers. The storylines of the LEFT BEHIND® products are based on the best-selling "Left Behind" book series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, which has sold more than 63 million copies worldwide.

The company's LEFT BEHIND license term and fees, due December 31, 2007, of $250,000, has been reduced to smaller payments of $21,000 each quarter for the next three years.

The company's direct shipments of products is at its highest levels since the company was founded.
