Stream Theory Joins Forces With Team6 Game Studios To Enhance Digital Distribution Network

Leading Publisher Licenses PC Games to Stream Theory for Worldwide Games on Demand Sites

IRVINE, CA - September 29, 2005: Stream Theory, Inc., a division of Tadpole Technology plc (LSE: TAD), today announced that it has signed a worldwide content provider agreement with Dutch developer Team6 Game Studios. Team6 has created such widely played games as "Scooter War3z" and "PizzaDude." Stream Theory's patented StreamFlowTM Games on Demand platform enables retailers, portals, game publishers, and ISPs to securely distribute PC games to broadband consumers under a variety of payment models.

"Maximizing worldwide distribution of our games is an important goal for us," remarked Ronnie Nelis, CEO of Team6 Game Studios. "Stream Theory's growing international network of licensed distributors and consumer web sites provides a timesaving process and economical channel for us to present our games to the public."

"Team6 games are so entertaining that broadband consumers across the planet will spend countless hours playing them, much to the delight of the publisher and our distribution partners," said Steig Westerberg, CEO of Stream Theory. "Our close relationship with Team6 Game Studios further enhances our game content portfolio, adding even more revenue generating opportunities for our worldwide digital distribution partners," Westerberg continued.

Games on Demand (GoD) is a broadband-only service where games application data is streamed to a user's PC. Unlike one-time purchases at retail or through installed downloads, GoD subscriptions provide recurring revenue streams for game publishers and distribution partners. GoD is emerging as a new revenue-generating window of opportunity for a PC game after its brief sell-through period passes. 2004 ended with 118 million worldwide broadband subscribers according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. With Nielsen//NetRatings reporting current U.S. penetration at 60% the desire for new online services from broadband users is accelerating adoption of new technologies and business models. According to Parks Associates the number of households subscribing to GoD services will climb to more than 2 million by 2007.
