Left Behind Games Announces Strong Sales

MURRIETA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 5, 2007 -- LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces™, the PC game from Left Behind Games Inc. (OTCBB: LFBG), has sold more than 65,000 units to retailers nationwide in the first 6 weeks of its release.

"These numbers provide an excellent foundation, compared with the first release of other successful real-time strategy games," says Left Behind Games co-founder and CEO, Troy Lyndon. "In the last several months, we have received requests from churches and ministries for more than a million 'Pass-It-On' trial versions of the game. We're filling these requests as fast as we can," says Jerome Mikulich, Director of Outreach for Left Behind Games.

According to a recent poll by the American Bible Society, 51 percent of adults say entertainment providers should develop content with positive messages and even refer to God and the Bible. "In an industry that produces gratuitously violent content, we are pleased to meet tremendous market demand for games with a positive moral message," says Jeffrey S. Frichner, co-founder and President of Left Behind Games.

Left Behind Games' first product, LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces, a PC game, is now available at more than 10,000 major retailers and inspirational book stores. Players will experience a post-rapture world in the ultimate battle of good versus evil. The storyline is based on the best-selling "Left Behind" book series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, which has sold more than 63 million copies worldwide.
