Innovative Online PC Game Now Available at www.kumawar.com
New York, NY (March 30, 2004
) - Kuma Reality Games, a leading broadband games company, has launched
its first reality-based game, Kuma\War. Created
using real-world missions from breaking news events, the subscription-based
online service is a tactical, squad-based game that brings top stories
from the war on terror directly to the consumer's PC.
Kuma\War delivers real-world
news events in a way never-before-seen in the world of video or
computer games. Just weeks after a military event occurs somewhere
around the world, Kuma\War will create a re-enactment
of the conflict, using advanced 3D gaming tools, and deliver the
mission to a subscriber's computer. At launch, Kuma\War
will give players a "boots on the ground" experience of
recent military missions, such as Uday and Qusay Hussein's Last
Stand in Mosul, Iraq, Operation Anaconda in Afghanistan, and an
amazing recreation of a large scale bank robbery thwarted by American
troops in Samarra, Iraq, November 2003.
"Kuma\War enables consumers

to devise the tactics and make the hard choices in some of the most
important events of our time. For our subscribers, we make the headlines

ROK The Enemy Within.
Prior to embarking on each mission, players are
given intelligence gathered from around the world, in the form of
a video news show, technical specifications for the weapons used,
a chronology of the battle, and even a satellite photo of the battlefield.
Expert military analysis is also provided to the player, to give
a strategic and tactical perspective of the historical event. Sources
for the intelligence include the Associated Press, declassified
Department of Defense documents, and a decorated team of military
