Dallas, TX – Oct 17, 2006 – Premium casual game developer and publisher, MumboJumbo today announced it plans to bring its best-selling casual games franchises to the PSP system. MumboJumbo’s first two releases, LUXOR: Wrath of Set and Platypus, will be available in mid November.
“MumboJumbo has already established itself as the leading provider of premium casual games at the retail channel for PC and MAC users,” remarked Mark Cottam, MumboJumbo’s CEO. “Now PSP system owners will be able to play some of the most popular casual titles ever made, like LUXOR, which exceeded 40 million downloads since its debut in 2005.”
LUXOR: Wrath of Set is the latest in the smash hit action-puzzle franchise first made popular by Luxor, the #1 online casual game of 2005. LUXOR: Wrath of Set, is developed and published by MumboJumbo, and offers the same addictive and easy-to-learn, yet difficult-to-master game play which made the original award-winning LUXOR franchise such a huge success. And now, being introduced to a whole new audience, LUXOR: Wrath of Set is setting a new standard for action-puzzle casual games on the PSP system.
Platypus is the first ever claymation side-scrolling shooter game to be launched on the PSP system. With its unique, hand-molded 3D clay graphics and non-stop pulse-pounding action game play, it proves itself to be a truly ground-breaking casual game for the PSP system.
The releases of LUXOR: Wrath of Set and Platypus for the PSP system signifies MumboJumbo’s first foray into the console market. Over the past several years, MumboJumbo has built its reputation as the premier publisher of premium casual games with bestselling releases for the PC and Mac. MumboJumbo plans to expand the audience for their titles by bringing their hit casual game franchises to new gaming platforms in the near future.
