New York – October 20, 2004 – Global Star Software, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO) and Artificial Mind and Movement announced today that Scaler for the PlayStationÃ‚Â®2 computer entertainment system and XboxÃ‚Â® video game system from Microsoft is now available in stores throughout North America.
“Scaler represents Global Star’s continuing commitment to releasing great, aggressively-priced titles,” said Christoph Hartmann, Senior Vice President of Publishing at Global Star Software. “Scaler is action-packed, challenging and has more gameplay than many full-priced games you’ll find this holiday season.”
"Scaler is first and foremost a great platform-action game," said Remi Racine, CEO and Executive Producer, Artificial Mind and Movement. "At a time when games of this nature are skewing towards an older, more mature audience, we’re pleased to produce a title that’s safe and fun for the whole family."
Scaler puts gamers in the shoes of Bobby Jenkins, a 12-year-old who stumbles upon his evil next door neighbor's plot to use a mutant lizard army to destroy the world. Caught, Bobby is zapped by a bizarre bolt of energy and transformed into his shape-shifting alter-ego Scaler. With no way to call for back up, Scaler has to defeat all of his enemies or risk spending the rest of his life in reptile exile!
Scaler for the PlayStationÃ‚Â®2 computer entertainment system and XboxÃ‚Â® video game system from Microsoft is rated ‘E’ for everyone and is available now for a suggested retail price of $19.99. A version for the Nintendo GameCube™ will be released in early November. For more information on Scaler, please visit http://www.globalstarsoftware.com/.
