Brighter Minds Media, LLC (Brighter Minds) is thrilled to announce the start of a new partnership with top game developer Gamelab. Brighter Minds will publish and distribute a selection of Gamelab's hit titles for the retail market. The collaboration will combine Gamelab's pioneering development skill and Brighter Minds' expertise in software packaging and distribution to bring creative new game ideas to retail locations throughout the country.
"At Brighter Minds we have worked hard to establish ourselves as a leader in retail distribution for the casual games market, and Gamelab has been a leader in the field of innovative game development for years," remarked Sam Ifergan, CEO of Brighter Minds. "We feel that in partnering with Gamelab, we are partnering with the best. We look forward to bringing Gamelab's creations to an even broader audience via traditional retail channels."
Brighter Minds will start by bringing one of Gamelab's most popular existing titles, Miss Management, to retail. Miss Management is the story of Denise, a new office manager determined to get some work out of her staff of crazy employees. Each character in the office has specialized abilities and unique personality quirks that present a challenge in navigating the often ridiculously complicated world of business. The innovative title has already been featured in both Wired Magazine and USA Today. Combining a hilarious storyline that rivals some of television's most popular sitcoms with the challenging and addictive gameplay that Gamelab is known for, Miss Management will be available at retail in May of 2008.
A second Gamelab original title, Out of Your Mind, is set to be released to retail shortly after.
"It doesn't matter how great your game is if no one ever sees it", stated Eric Zimmerman, co-founder and Chief Design Officer at Gamelab. "Gamelab makes games for everyone, and by partnering with Brighter Minds, we are getting more of our games into the hands of our players. We highly value the expertise that Brighter Minds brings in the retail distribution space and appreciate their faith in our innovative and sometimes unusual games. Expect to see more great Gamelab titles coming your way from Brighter Minds."
