C3 Entertainment, Inc., The Three Stooges® brand owner, announced today a multi-suite of casual games from Beanbag Studios, Inc. will be released for PC, MAC and Internet play early 2008. ‘Stooges Pinball’ is the first game title and other titles will follow throughout the year.
Ani Khachoian, C3’s Vice President of Licensing & Merchandising said ‘The casual gaming market is a great space for The Three Stooges. The inherent enjoyment of game play plus the comedic element brought to it by The Three Stooges characters creates a simply wonderful and fun environment for the player. We are confident the games will be readily accepted since our brand is being brought to this market by a true industry leader with Beanbag as our licensee.’
Beanbag also is targeting the female audience to a much greater degree than with most Three Stooges branded products. Khachoian added ‘We have seen such an increase among the female audience and fan base in the last several years across the board that it is refreshing to see a company like Beanbag understand that this audience segment is ready to engage with this brand.’
