TransGaming Brings Abandon Interactive's Freaky Creatures To Mac

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 23, 2009) - TransGaming Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TNG), announces a partnership with Abandon Interactive Entertainment for the release of the Massive Multi-player Online (MMO) game Freaky Creatures available on Mac and PC. Available immediately at retail, Freaky Creatures is a unique MMO that combines a collectible monster figure with a customized online game character perfectly suited for both casual and skilled gaming audiences.

TransGaming specializes in the development of innovative products for the electronic entertainment industry and is working with Abandon Interactive to provide the Mac community with access to this unique and compelling game offering. Rather then a traditional retail video game box offering, Freaky Creatures offers consumers a Starter Pack with two collectible monster figures plus a 1GB reusable flash drive-enabling access for players to create and customize their character on either a PC or Mac.

"Freaky Creatures represents an innovative and fresh approach to the MMO gaming experience and will continually surprise players with what is coming next", commented Vikas Gupta, CEO & President of TransGaming. "Through Abandon's partnership with TransGaming, all game content updates such as new parts, powers, and lair objects, plus the development of new types of gameplay will be seamlessly deployed for both PC and Mac players simultaneously."

The Freaky Creatures game experience allows players to battle their creatures online against friends as well as a chance to socialize, fight and power up within its online space.

"The release of Freaky Creatures on multiple platforms gives players a high level of flexibility, allowing them to play Freaky Creatures whenever and wherever they want," commented Jamie Ottilie, President of Abandon Interactive. "Releasing Freaky Creatures on the Macintosh Platform allows us to reach our demographic where they live and play."
