TransGaming Fills Mac Gaming Void With Cider

New Cider Technology Means PC Games Are Not Just For Windows Anymore

TORONTO, ON - August 3, 2006 - TransGaming Inc. (TSX-V: TNG - "TransGaming"), a leader in the development of software portability products for cross-platform gaming, today announces the "Cider TM " portability engine for Apple's Intel based Macs. With Cider, video game developers and publishers can deploy their Windows-based titles on Apple's new Intel Mac - quickly, easily, and without the need for traditional arduous porting - thus filling a major void in the Mac gaming market.

TransGaming's Cider portability engine will serve as a tremendous asset to video game developers and publishers by allowing them to release a Windows and Mac version of their titles simultaneously, eliminating the need for time consuming and expensive porting. Cider represents a huge win-win for Mac gamers and developers/publishers: it quenches the thirst for more games on Mac and increases the revenue opportunities for publishers through the increased distribution of their titles on the rapidly growing Intel Mac platform.

"TransGaming's Cider product will change the landscape of the Mac gaming market. Mac gamers have always patiently waited many months for access to only a handful of titles. With Cider, game developers and publishers can easily extend their triple A portfolio to Intel Mac without any effort or delay which means that avid Mac gamers will have access to triple A video games coincidental with the Windows release", said Vikas Gupta, President and CEO of TransGaming.

The Cider portability engine is targeted at video game developers and publishers and TransGaming already has agreements in place with a number of the top tier video game publishers to bring their titles to the Intel Mac. Mac gamers can expect the release of these titles in the next few months.

Video game developers and publishers who would like to generate greater revenues by extending their content to the Intel Mac platform with TransGaming's Cider portability engine should contact TransGaming at and visit for more information.

The TSX Venture Exchange does not accept the responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
