Munich, Germany - December 1st 2006 - Shin'en Multimedia, a leading developer for the Nintendo handheld plattforms and The Game Factory, worldwide publisher of video and computer games based on leading international children's characters, today announce a development agreement for a new Nintendo DS TM game starring Garfield.
Set for a release in March 2007, Garfield awakes in his worst Nightmare after he tried to squeeze breakfast, lunch and dinner together into one big meal. He's now caught in his own bad dream because he smashed his alarm clock while sleeping off his overindulgence.
Garfield will make his way through 16 colorful and vibrant levels in four different themed nightmares. Various challenging mini-games have to be mastered as well.
"We're thrilled to be working with Shin'en Multimedia on another game for the Nintendo DS TM . They have proved to be consistent in delivering high quality products on time and on budget and we're confident they will deliver another top quality title with Garfield's Nightmare" said Thomas Holdorf, Producer at The Game Factory.
Manfred Linzner, Project Manager at Shin'en Multimedia adds to this: "After the international success of Miss Spider we are happy to create another Nintendo DSTM title for The Game Factory. Because of our extensive experience in this genre we will create a worthy Nightmare for the beloved Cat."
