QUEBEC, CANADA - Thursday 28 July 2005 -Sarbakan, a leading online game developer, announces a $ 3 million dollars (CAN) investment program over five years to expand its Quebec studio operations and hire new personnel.

"The demand for our Web-based game products has grown tremendously over the last six months", states Guy Boucher, President and Executive Producer of Sarbakan. "Both our Service and Original IP Development divisions are working around the clock and we have seen the production team increase by more than 20 %. To keep pace, we have already invested 500 000 $ (CAN) in our production capabilities, equipment and facilities over the last two quarters. And we plan on sustaining this rapid growth rate by injecting at least two and a half million $ (CAN) in our studio, productions and personnel over the next five years", says Mr. Boucher.

According to the company's president, these investments will benefit both Sarbakan's service productions and the studio's own original IP development efforts while ensuring the company's long term growth.

We will very soon be launching several titles based on our own original intellectual properties, " adds Mr. Boucher. "With more and more use of online games in the branding and marketing of consumer products, movies, etc., we are confident that our investment will help sustain our long term growth".
