Press Release

GLENDALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Oct 13, 2009 Someone has laid a finger on Seth Green’s BUTTERFINGER®. Nestlé USA today announced the launch of “Dude, Where’s My Bar?” an innovative online narrative game for consumers to help solve the mystery surrounding the October 2 theft of Green’s vintage Butterfinger bar. The “lite” alternate reality game starring Seth Green will call upon the clever, irreverent thinking of Butterfinger fans, as they compete to find and solve clues that could lead to the return of Green’s missing bar and a one-of-a-kind grand prize: a solid-gold Butterfinger bar worth $10,000.

Green, a lifelong Butterfinger fan, was announced recently as the official Butterfinger Mouthpiece, in conjunction with the brand reintroducing its tagline “Nobody’s Gonna Lay A Finger On My Butterfinger.” Green collaborated with Butterfinger to produce “Dude, Where’s My Bar?” using comedy and the real world as a platform. Dubbed an “alternate reality game lite” (ARGL), DudeWheresMyBar.com propels fans into an entertaining storyline created by the comedic genius of Green and the one-and-only iconic candy bar brand. “Dude, Where’s My Bar?” combines the innovations of a multi-platform narrative game with video vignettes featuring Green and co-starring actors Sean Cullen, Stuart Pankin and Jon Wellner.

“Butterfinger has long been associated with clever, irreverent humor,” said Butterfinger marketing manager Daniel Jhung. “Leave it to this brand to serve up the first-ever consumer packaged goods ARG with a light, Butterfinger twist.” Jhung added, “This game is a salute to the truly clever community of ARG enthusiasts everywhere. They’ve made a huge impact on pop culture and given a new face to gaming.”

Game designer John Montgomery of Threshold Interactive said, “The game was intended to appeal to both dedicated ARG fans, looking for a light-hearted laugh, as well as casual game players. While we may call the game a ‘lite’ version of an alternate reality, there is nothing ‘light’ about the technological innovations and the degree to which the layers of games can be customized and controlled by the player.”

The heart of the game’s storyline is a multi-part mystery starring Green and his “evil nemesis,” bringing to life “Nobody’s Gonna Lay A Finger On My Butterfinger” for Green, the Butterfinger Mouthpiece. The narrative thread will span six different games over a nearly three-week period, beginning October 13, at 12:01 a.m. EDT with a big reveal on Halloween, October 31, at 11:59 p.m. EDT, when the game ends. Players can compete in all six games and dive deeply into the story or jump in and out at anytime. Each game can either interconnect with the others or stand alone. Players are awarded points for playing games as well as clues that point them to the whereabouts of Green’s bar. Weekly prizes, including the iPhone 3GS, Flip Cameras, and DJ Hero Renegade/Guitar Hero game bundles, also may be awarded. At the conclusion of the game play, one grand-prize winner will be awarded a real, solid-gold Butterfinger bar valued at $10,000. The winner may have the opportunity to meet Green in person in Los Angeles.

Among the game innovation highlights of the Butterfinger game “Dude, Where’s My Bar?”:
“The Remix Game” – a music-based performance game that allows players to take Green’s infamous rant and remix it into their own music video mash-up and create a new song
“Can You Put a Finger on the Pulse of Your Friends” – culls various Facebook data from the profiles of the user’s friends directly into a video/game application. The custom questions are then seamlessly integrated into an innovative video-quiz that determines how well they know their friends (or Butterfinger), while delivering humorous storyline elements
“Gigapixel Graveyard” – The first-ever game utilizing gigapixel technology – this photo game allows players to pan large visual fields and then zoom into tight close-ups to detect hidden clues. Gigapixel technology has been used in professional photography and for military surveillance because of the remarkable way images can be viewed from afar or extremely close up without losing clarity. Because the technology allows players to easily manipulate visual images, it adds an exciting new dimension to the search for clues to locate Green’s missing Butterfinger

Players must find all game clues and complete the final puzzle with the highest overall score to win the grand prize. Complete game rules and regulations available at DudeWheresMyBar.com.

Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment Maynot Be Working On Stargate Worlds Anymore And May Have May Closed [Updated]


It appears that the PC MMO, Stargate Worlds, may no longer be in development. the games website, www.stargateworlds.com, is currently not reachable.
However, whilst the company had been in some financial difficulty for some time,they did announce in August to mmorpg.com that "Things are actually very good here right now. We received some funding commitments that will provide financing over time and allow us to move forward with development and start catching up on our past due financial obligations, including some back payroll that we paid last week.”

In September, however, a lawsuit was been bought against the "Founder and principal owner of Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, Gary Whiting, [who] has been sued for fraudulence in the matter of finances by one of the major investors"2 the accusation is that "Gary Whiting took at least $350,000.00 from Mmoguls, Inc. unbeknownst to anyone else, including the CEO, Brent Barton."3

http://www.cheyenneme.com/ is still active, but has not been updated since at least April 2009 4, but i have e:mailed MGM and Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment for clarification on whether Stargate Worlds is still currently in development, if Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment is still developing it, and if Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment is still operating.

Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment have replied by saying "Thanks for the enquiry. Our site has been down for maintenance longer than we had hoped however expect it to be up soon. We made a maintenance announcement Friday via the forums."

So it looks like a false Alarm on our part, Apologies for any hassle caused.
