Play Ten Interactive Titles Praised at E3 Show

Leading Gaming Web Sites Are Impressed by Play Ten Titles

MOSCOW (June 1, 2006) - Play Ten Interactive, a leading developer and publisher of award-winning titles, received significant interest in its E3 lineup. Based in Moscow, Play Ten has developed a strong portfolio of multi-platform computer games for 2006 and 2007.

"We are very confident about our upcoming products and have received extremely positive feedback from publishers and reporters during the show," said Dmitri Kruglov, CEO of Play Ten Interactive. "Since returning from E3, we have been overwhelmed with the growing interest from media outlets around the world."

Matt Medford, of IGN.com, was just one of the many reporters excited about Play Ten's lineup, particularly The Precursors. Medford said the screenshots of The Precursors alone show the product's great potential.

"The Precursors from Russian developer Play Ten is one to watch," said Medford. "Even in its early build, the game shows functionality and gleam which many released titles never live up to. ... With well over a year left in the development cycle, this title shows hints of a much larger and grander game and that is saying a lot considering how expansive the game already is."

However, The Precursors is not the only game that has generated interest in the industry. The Wall, which places the player in a futuristic world, has also received ample praise for what Jeremy Dunham of IGN.com describes as its ability to capture and retain a single player's attention with highly destructible environments and numerous break points.

"Play Ten Interactive has a couple of interesting games in development, such as The Wall, an intriguing cyberpunk-based action title set in a dark future, and Battle for Atlantis, which looks to be quite a cool RTS game," said Dave VanDyke, a contributing editor for Gameshark.com. " The Precursors alone has me very much looking forwards to the future releases by this company."

Play Ten showcased the following new titles at the E3 show in Los Angeles:
