Wal-Mart, Military Bases & New Marketing Reps Pave Way for Increased Distribution of Left Behind Games

TEMECULA, CA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2009) - Left Behind Games Inc. (OTCBB: LFBG), dba Inspired Media, announced that Wal-Mart has approved a test market in an undisclosed number of stores for Left Behind PC Games. The games should be available for sales in time for the Christmas shopping season. LFBG has also signed an agreement with Leading Points Corporation to market the games through military websites and on bases including the Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard and Marine exchanges.

In addition, the company continues to hire marketing representatives to focus primarily on sales to over 300,000 churches in America alone. The company continues to receive positive reception to the most recent LEFT BEHIND branded game, Tribulation Forces, the sequel to the original game, LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces, which is the most widely distributed Christian PC game in history. In addition to the newest LEFT BEHIND games, Inspired Media has three Charlie Church Mouse Games for pre-school, kindergarten and early elementary players, as well as Keys to The Kingdom. See www.inspiredmedia.com & www.supportgoodgames.com.

The games have received approval by well respected leaders in the Christian community such as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Lakewood Church, pastured by Joel & Victoria Osteen. Since the release of Tribulation Forces for worldwide distribution through mainstream markets on June 15th, new avenues for sales have developed quickly. With the expectation of additional outlets through Wal-Mart and Military Exchanges, and an aggressive marketing plan in place for new sales reps, LFBG is anticipating an explosive marketing surge starting within the next few months.

Overall, the sale of PC games has grown exponentially. According to a recent CNBC News report, even though we are in a recession, computer game sales continue to soar. PricewaterhouseCoopers, known for their astute analysis of business conditions and trends, predicts that the sale of software video games will reach $21.6 Billion by 2013 in the US alone. Lyndon conservatively projects that Christian games will capture at least 1% of that market in the US, or $210 million annually by 2013.

Lyndon says that in contrast to almost all other PC games, Inspired Media games encourage positive decisions and actions. Rather than the usual "winning" by using weapons and killing the enemy, players are rewarded when their characters use the power of influence to bring about good rather than destruction.

He believes that the approach incorporated in all of the Inspired Media games can help to counteract the violence affecting gamers who at times have acted out aggressively in real life. Due to the positive thought patterns encouraged by the games, he would like to be contacted by anyone in a prison ministry who might be interested in obtaining a grant to enable the games -- along with the equipment to use them -- to be placed in prisons for rehabilitative purposes.

Tribulation Forces has significant new features and improvements including maps and missions. The game includes 45 single player missions including tutorials and an all-new skirmish mode to be played alone or with up to seven friends online. There are 39 skirmish battle multiplayer maps and three different multiplayer modes of play.

The potential markets for these games include churches, schools, fundraisers and game stores, as well as retailers such Walgreens, Kmart, Target, and Albertson's to name a few.
