TRUE GAMES APPOINTS PETER JARVIS CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER

TRUE GAMES APPOINTS PETER JARVIS CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER

Former NCSoft and EA/Origin Exec Brings More Than 10 Years of MMO
Technology, Billing and Publishing Experience to the post

Orange County, Calif. October 7, 2008 -- True Games Interactive
(www.truegamesinteractive.com),
a new global multi-player online game publisher announced today that it
has appointed industry veteran Peter Jarvis as its Chief Technology
Officer.  Jarvis, who most recently held the post of Vice President
and Chief Information Officer at NCSoft, has more than 15 years of
experience in information technology including 10 years focused on IT
and game operations in the MMO category.  As CTO of True Games
Interactive, Jarvis will be responsible for building the True Tech
platform and will oversee all applications and web development while
launching and integrating multiple AAA MMO titles.

"Our mission is to deliver AAA social games to a free to play world.
The foundation of our success will be building flawless, advanced
technology to support our games," said Bob Drobish, CEO of True Games
Interactive. "The addition of a highly experienced head of technology
to our executive team is critical and Peter's background and in-depth
knowledge make him a perfect fit for the role."
 
Most recently as Vice President and CIO of NCSoft Corporation, Jarvis
directed all information technology and online game operations for the
western hemisphere.  During his seven years at the company, Jarvis
grew the business through operations from a single MMORPG with less
than $1m/yr revenue to supporting 6+ live games with $70m+/yr in
revenue while increasing operating profits by fully developing
integrated account management, billing, monitoring, and automated
publishing platforms. 

Prior to NCSoft, Jarvis held positions as head of information
technology at ClearCommerce Corp, and EA/Origin Systems.  Jarvis has
been in the IT industry more than 15 years and in the gaming industry
more than 10 of those years, with a focus on billing and fraud
systems.

"I was highly impressed with the management team and the business model
that True Games Interactive has in place, so the decision to join was
an easy one," said Jarvis.  "I am confident that my background in
technology and my experience with some of the top MMO games on the
market will help me to accomplish the company's goals of publishing
AAA quality entertainment backed by some of the best technology
available today."

"With the development of our own advanced technology platform, and the
creation and launch of several multi-million dollar titles on the
horizon, our technology must be state of the art," said Jeff Lujan,
Chairman and Founder of True Games Interactive. "The position of CTO
is arguably the most important role in accomplishing our strategic
goals and snagging Peter is nothing short of a coup."

True Games Interactive has several key partnerships in place and a
number of products already in development, including its recently
announced project being developed by renowned developer, Petroglyph.
The Petroglyph team, best known for its award winning Star Wars®:
Empire At WarT and Universe at WarT series, is creating a global
free-to-play, micro-transaction based game for the personal computer.
True Games and Petroglyph will soon announce full product details and
a launch timeframe.  

The True Games Interactive team is also looking to fill several other
key employment roles. For more information on the company, its
