Gamecock Media Group And Crackpot Entertainment Get Creepy Crawly With Insecticide Releasing On PC And The Nintendo DS™

The Buggiest Game Ever Coming This Fall


Cockpit, Austin, Texas - May 24, 2007 - Today Gamecock Media Group announced Crackpot Entertainment's Insecticide will be released on PC and the Nintendo DS system this holiday season. The classically styled action adventure detective game brings the look and feel of gritty gumshoe films into a futuristic city where insects have become the dominant race.

Insecticide's gameplay puts players in the shoes of bug detectives charged with the task of investigating a mystery of epic proportions. Players will discover gameplay elements reminiscent of classic adventure titles, and action elements that will get the heart racing. Every aspect of the game brings players into a totally interactive world to discover, allowing them to put together and utilize clues to their fullest extent in hunting down culprits. Bringing the game to both PC and Nintendo DS opens a plethora of options and expands the possibilities of scenarios players will find themselves in. The unique input options of PC and Nintendo DS will allow for precise navigation to investigate environments and expertly control special talents of the characters.

"The heart of classic detective novels and movies is to get the audience involved mentally, but now via PC and the Nintendo DS we can get players involved in a much more tactile arena," said Rick Stults, Console Chief for Gamecock Media Group. "The mouse and the stylus are the key to the 'touch and feel' experience we're really aiming for with this game and I think that's something players are really going to enjoy."

Insecticide's interactive environments are fully realized in realtime 3D on the Nintendo DS and the wide array of in-game items, clues and weapons assure hours of entertainment either at home or on the go. Additionally, players on the Nintendo DS will be able to team up with friends and other comrades in arms for multiplayer action. Never before has a crime world had this much buzz.
