Nickelodeon and MumboJumbo Enter into a Publishing Partnership

Nickelodeon and MumboJumbo announce that the two companies have entered into a development and publishing partnership for casual games. The companies will work together to publish three casual games in the coming year.

The first of those titles is "Charlotte's Web: Word Rescue" which was released in conjunction with "Charlotte's Web", the major motion picture from Nickelodeon Movies/Walden Media/Paramount Pictures. Other Nickelodeon and MTVN Kids and Family Group brands which MumboJumbo will publish and develop games, include "Neopets", one of the world's most popular youth websites; and Nickelodeon's hit animated comedy/adventure series "Avatar: The Last Airbender."

"Charlotte's Web: Word Rescue" brings to life the timelessly lovable characters of E.B. White's story of loyalty and companionship in a creative and challenging word puzzle game. Gamers are charged with the mission of weaving letters, constructing words and solving phrases to help the web-crafty Charlotte spin her wise remarks into a netting masterpiece. When players crack the quotes, Wilbur the pig advances in his journey from the Zuckerman Farm to the County Fair, enlivening ten familiar "Charlotte's Web" settings offered in either puzzle or timed mode.

"Charlotte's Web: Word Rescue" will be made available through MumboJumbo's extensive network of online game portals, including MumboJumbo.com and on NickArcade.com. The "Avatar" and "Neopets" themed-games will be released in second quarter 2007 and dates will be announced in the coming months.
