San Francisco, CA - December 15th, 2004 - Hip Interactive Corp. today announced that its fast-growing publishing division, Hip Games(TM), signed an agreement with Living Dead Productions Limited to produce a George A. Romero series of video games on all current and upcoming platforms.

Romero's movies, including "Dawn of the Dead" and "Night of the Living Dead," benefit from a strong, worldwide cult-following, which translates into continuous success for the movies and their merchandising. Now, finally, his fans will have the long-awaited series of video games that capture the entire universe of zombies, action and gore of George A. Romero. Hip Games(TM) will soon be announcing the first game of the series in a separate release.

"Horror fans have been searching for the ultimate experience in gaming, and we intend to deliver it to them with the tremendous creative input of legendary director, George A. Romero, and Living Dead Productions," said Arindra Singh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hip Interactive Corp. "We believe this series will make an important contribution to the growth and results of our Hip Games(TM) division."
