November 2004 - LOS ANGELES, CA & NEW YORK, NY - "Shroomz: Quest for Puppy," a fast-paced puzzle game with fairytale storyline, received "Best Web/Downloadable Game of the Year" at the inaugural Billboard Digital Entertainment Awards in Los Angeles. An acclaimed panel of entertainment and gaming heavyweights judged the category.
"Shroomz" breaks the mold for casual games by integrating a rich story with novel game play. Already, the game has attracted millions of players with over 30 levels, exciting twists, and beautiful graphics. Players assume the role of Bashful, a "wee lass" outfitted with boxing gloves, who navigates a puzzling underworld of mushrooms, magic potions, bombs, and cobwebs to rescue her lost puppy.
"Shroomz" was released by Game Trust, the global leader infrastructure for transactions and community features in casual games, as part of the Game Plan program. Leading casual game developers from around the world produce titles, such as "Shroomz," under Game Plan, receiving marketing assistance, integration fees, and a revenue share from skill tournaments, subscriptions, and download sales. Every game title released through the Game Plan program gains access to over 100 million players per month through the extensive Game Trust distribution network.
In the heat of the excitement and fanfare of the awards ceremony, Game Trust Founder and CEO Adeo Ressi exclaimed, "First I'd like to thank my family, then I'd like to thank the members of the Academy, and I'd like to thank everyone who made 'Shroomz' and, yes, I'd like to thank everyone who's experienced 'Shroomz.'"
