Press Release

CINCINNATI – May 19, 2011 – Zoo Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ CM: ZOOG), a leading developer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment software, along with developer Eko Software today announced plans to release physics-based puzzle game Storm under its indiePub labelin Summer 2011 for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation® Network and PC.

“We are constantly in search of innovative projects for the indiePub label, and as the Community Favorite of our first game development competition, we are proud to be involved with the release of Storm,” said Mark Seremet, Zoo CEO. “The unique gameplay elements of Storm are coupled with a serene soundtrack to create an inspired gaming experience that can be enjoyed for hours at a time.”

In Storm, players control the weather to grow seeds into trees by guiding them through nature-themed levels set to a tranquil music background. By manipulating the weather elements, players solve puzzles. However, conjured weather can either help or hinder along the way. Seeds are transported past obstacles with gusts of wind, torrential downpours and bolts of lighting to reach various checkpoints throughout the game. Featuring 49 intriguing levels, players use three main elements and four secondary elements to maneuver five different kinds of seeds in each of the four seasons.

The three main elements include wind, lighting and rain. Wind moves seeds around. Lightning can break up rocks, set grass on fire and make seeds jump. Rain maneuvers seeds by filling up holes, extinguishing fires and creating bubbles. Secondary elements both complicate and enhance gameplay. Tornadoes strengthen wind, blowing seeds to higher ground. Bubbles also elevate seeds by enabling them to float, and can be used with wind to transport seeds across longer distances. Snow builds up, creating a cushion for seeds to access higher ground. Finally, ice provides a smooth sliding surface for seeds to move across.

Each level can be played in three unique game modes – adventure, challenge and spirit. Adventure mode allows untimed playthrough to unlock levels and progress in the game. Challenge mode has players finish unlocked levels to beat completion times and raise scores. Spirit mode features special orbs that are placed within the levels for players to collect as a means to rack up points and earn trophies.

Mind-bending yet relaxing, Storm is rated E for Everyone and will be available Summer 2011 at a MSRP of $9.99 for PSN and PC and 800 Microsoft® Points for XBLA. For more information visit For press assets (media only), please visit:

Blogger went down around 2 weeks ago and i lost 2 to 3 days worth of posts. some of the posts were restored but unfortunately there's at least a days worth that were restored but not in a way which readers can access them. so i'm going to re post them over the week when it's quiet. i won't restore all of them in one go, they'll appear when posts normally do on the site. Some posts may have to be slightly edited before they re-appear so there's a chance they may look different. this appears to be a result of Blogger's restoration process.
