OTTAWA, CANADA – June 11, 2012 – Snowed In Studios, an Ottawa-based video game and interactive media developer, and partner Le Scorpion Masqué, a Montreal-based board game publisher, announced today the release of the engaging and educational Monster Chase game for Apple iOS, Android and Windows Phone. This represents Snowed In Studios’ first title made available to the mobile community, and Le Scorpion Masqué’s first digital version of their board games.
Monster Chase is an engaging game for children ages four to nine that helps to increase concentration and memory, develop cognitive ability, and enhance reasoning skills through entertaining gameplay. Based on the classic memory game , it will be available in English, French and German with international distribution. The simple, user-friendly interface ensures that it is easy to play so children can quickly understand how to play. Adding to the fun are five different game modes and a local multiplayer option that allows children to play with their family and friends.
The partnership between Snowed In Studios and Le Scorpion Masqué represents the digitalization of the Monster Chase board game originally released in March 2009. The digital version of Monster Chase maintains the qualities of the original product but adds a unique experience only available in a digital rather than physical game form.
“Snowed In Studios and Le Scorpion Masqué are committed to delivering top-quality interactive experiences to consumers,” commented Jean-Sylvan Sormany, Co-Founder and President of Snowed In Studios. “We are pleased to be working together to provide an exciting game that children really enjoy. Monster Chase offers stimulating gameplay and children will love the premise of scaring monsters away with their toys.”
