KUMA REALITY GAMES RELEASES FIRST
'KUMA NEWS MINUTE' OF SADDAM CAPTURE

Digital News Brief Provides Video Re-enactment of Event
Using 3D Gaming Technology

New York, NY (January 20, 2004 ) - Kuma Reality Games, the pioneer of ‘Reality Gaming’ and a leading-edge broadband content company, today released a video re-enactment of the capture of Saddam Hussein, created with its soon-to-launch Kuma War online service. This video, the first of the company’s monthly Kuma Minutes, combines real-world intel - including satellite imagery, Department of Defense reports, expert analysis and personal accounts of soldiers on the ground - with cutting-edge game technology to create an accurate and stunningly realistic portrayal of this historic event.

The Kuma Minute significantly raises the bar for 3D news graphics. Future Kuma Minutes and the underlying assets will be made available to news organizations for re-broadcast and publication.

"Kuma War uses breaking news as the basis for our playable missions," said Dante Anderson, Kuma’s head of development. "You can be the 4th Infantry Division, capturing Saddam, or the 10 th Mountain Division chasing al Qaeda through Afghanistan. Our job is to give a 'boots on the ground' experience of actual events in the global war on terror."

Available online in February, Kuma War episodes are delivered over the web to subscribers, giving consumers the latest headlines in a playable, first-person experience. "We communicate the latest events in the global war on terror to Americans at home in a fundamentally new way," said Keith Halper, CEO of Kuma Reality Games. "We are the news -- informative, accurate and timely - for a generation raised on interactive media."
