6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

TransGaming has announced that its Studio Division, creator of Garage Inc., is currently in production of KULA BLOX, a new multi-platform game targeted to a "broad family audience." The animal themed arcade game will be simultaneously released on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac, PC and the GameTree TV Smart TV Gaming Platform in the summer of 2011.

"Our original game, Garage Inc., was an incredible success having garnered a user base of almost 500,000. The casual gaming sector is a high-growth market with lots of potential. These are exciting times, and we are very pleased to be launching a new title based on our own IP", commented Wojtek Kawczynski, Managing Director of TransGaming’s Studio Division. "By incorporating both TransGaming's own enablement technologies, as well as innovative micro-transaction business models, KULA BLOX is well-positioned to become profitable quickly while at the same time generating a long-term revenue stream.

"KULA BLOX will be an animal-themed arcade-style game that allows a broader audience of non-traditional gamers to have immersive, but still "snack" gaming experiences. The KULA BLOX property is designed to become a franchise that spans across multiple future titles with KULA BLOX being the first. When paired with the lucrative in-game micro-transactions and content updates, the result will be a game that maximizes both profitability and long-term playability.

Topware Entertainment's Two Worlds II is now available for purchase from Macgamestore.com. The fantasy role playing game sends players to the unexplored land of Eastern Antaloor and features detailed graphics, a unique magic system, and a flexible combat system.

A breathtaking journey into Antaloor's past.

After the downfall of Aziraal, God of Fire, the Dark Lord Gandohar has nearly achieved his objective to disrupt the balance between the elements. Dark magic surges into the land to fill the void. Recognizing the potential for complete control over the dark powers, Gandohar starts to use the power of Aziraal trap within Kyra, the descendant of the Orphans. Despite her ancestry, Kyra cannot endure the strain. With Antaloor already in his clutches, Gandohar concocts a new plan from his stronghold in Oswaroth. There are still those who struggle against the tyrant, hoping to shift the balance of forces in their favor. The fight for Antaloor continues...

Five years have passed since dramatic events brought the whole world to the edge of the abyss. The hero is a prisoner in the dungeons of Gandohar's castle. His hopes of saving his sister vanished with his freedom. Just as despair threatens to overcome him, hope comes from where he would have least expected. The Orcs, a race the hero had always hated, have put together a rescue squad that frees the hero from his bonds. He emerges into a land desecrated by evil.
