Soul and Vibe Signs Black Lantern to Develop Entertainment Apps Based on Licensed-Brands and Original Soul and Vibe IP

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2015) - Soul and Vibe Interactive Inc. (OTCQB: SOUL) ("The Company"), a video and computer games company, announced today it has signed Missouri-based development studio Black Lantern to develop entertainment apps based on licensed brands and original Soul and Vibe Intellectual Property ("IP"). The Agreement represents the first Development-Publishing Agreement between Soul and Vibe and Black Lantern, though the principles of both companies previously worked together on several successful interactive games based on the John Deere and Iron Chef America brands, which were published on Nintendo-branded hardware platforms.

Under the terms of the new Agreement, Black Lantern will develop a line of four (4) entertainment apps for Soul and Vibe. It is anticipated that the first of these four products will launch during the late 3rd Quarter / early 4th Quarter of 2015. Additional products in the line are anticipated to launch, one per quarter, through the 2nd Quarter of 2016. Each entertainment app will be released on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, as well as on Android platform devices (via Google Play and Amazon). A provision to potentially expand the list of supported product platforms to include Microsoft's Windows Phone and Surface Tablet exists, as well.

"Our publishing focus is to develop and launch an expanded, diversified, product line-up that consists of both games and entertainment apps," stated Soul and Vibe's CEO and President, Peter Anthony Chiodo ("Tony"). "Black Lantern has created a proprietary tech platform that has launched numerous successful licensed-brand entertainment apps over the last two years. We feel the tech platform is a solid fit for our licensed brands, such as John Deere, and a great way to expand original Soul and Vibe IPs, such as our forthcoming SirVival game, which was teased earlier this week."

Specific details on the entertainment apps Black Lantern will be developing for Soul and Vibe will be unveiled during the summer. Additional details regarding SirVival, as well as a formal announcement about the game itself, are anticipated over the next several weeks.
