TransGaming Debuts In-Game Purchases on GameTree™ TV

Turbolab Pursuit Launch Marks First GameTree™ TV Title to Enable Microtransactions

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 15, 2014) - TransGaming (TSX VENTURE:TNG) has announced that popular game Turbolab Pursuit is now available to play on GameTree™ TV. By introducing microtransaction capabilities to the platform, players are now able to fully customize gaming experiences with add-ons for their characters and gameplay.

Exclusive to iOS devices until now, Turbolab Pursuit, developed by Bulky Pix is a 2D side-scrolling game that is a runner and shoot 'em up hybrid. The game takes place in a world that has only recently discovered automobiles. Players rocket around the unusual world in an all-new prototype vehicle created by the mad scientist Professor West, in order to escape the clutches of enemies trying to get their hands on his revolutionary invention.

With in-game purchases, Turbolab Pursuit offers players over 4,000 ways to customize their ride, with crazy parts and devastating weapons like an aircraft aileron, a tractor engine, melon cannons and tortoise-launcher engines. Players can also customize their characters through a diverse selection of headgear, outfits, and hairstyles.

"The addition of Turbolab Pursuit is an innovative demonstration of how we are enhancing our monetization strategy with GameTree TV. Embraced by gamers across multiple platforms, TransGaming is now bringing microtransaction capabilities to the television," said Vikas Gupta, CEO & President of TransGaming.
