MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- Soul and Vibe Interactive Inc. (OTCQB: SOUL), "The Company," a video and computer games company, today announced that it has licensed Striker Rush: Champion Edition, an easy to pick-up-and-play soccer game, to Tanjarine, a subsidiary of TouchTunes, the largest provider of in-venue music and entertainment. Striker Rush: Champion Edition is the second Soul and Vibe game to be licensed to Tanjarine.
Tanjarine is the first integrated tabletop ordering, entertainment and pay-at-the-table solution to combine 10" proprietary tabletop tablets with server handhelds, which expedites service, payment, and second screen TV's. The platform provides guests with menu and entertainment options, portability that eliminates the constraints of one-tablet-per-table installations, and other innovations that help increase restaurant efficiency and average check size. Customizable for bars and restaurants, Tanjarine's catalog of entertainment offers games, music and content that targets everyone from families to sports fans to couples and more. Many of the games also enable guests to play with a friend or connect the tabletop tablets to second screens TV's located throughout a venue, creating a more interactive gaming experience.
Earlier this month, while the World Cup was in full swing and hundreds of millions of viewers were captivated by soccer, Soul and Vibe launched a unique version of its high-speed "lane runner" soccer game, Striker Rush: Champion Edition on the Tanjarine platform. Striker Rush: Champion Edition is the first sports game to be released on the Tanjarine platform, which continues to round out their gaming offerings.
In addition to Striker Rush: Champion Edition, Tanjarine has licensed the Company's highly popular and innovative "match-3" game, Timeless Gems for their platform. Tanjarine has licensed other Soul and Vibe games as well. Specifics will be publicly disclosed in the coming weeks.
"We are very excited to announce the launch of Striker Rush: Champion Edition for the Tanjarine platform," said Soul and Vibe's CEO and President, Peter Anthony Chiodo ("Tony"). "Striker Rush: Champion Edition is a fun, fast-paced and easy to pick-up-and play sports game that appeals worldwide to soccer fans and gamers of all ages. 700 million viewers worldwide watched this year's World Cup. It was the most watched World Cup, ever. With the world's attention fixed on soccer, the release of Striker Rush: Champion Edition, both commercially and on the Tanjarine platform, has been a perfect complement to the drama of the World Cup. Our announcement today is also particularly exciting for Soul and Vibe given Striker Rush: Champion Edition is the first sports game to be launched on the Tanjarine platform. As a company, we are very proud of that."
Commercially, the Company released Striker Rush: Champion Edition worldwide on Apple's App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch and on the Android platform, via Google Play and Amazon.com, in June 2014. Striker Rush: Champion Edition is a speed-escalating "lane-based runner" in which you dribble through defenders, dodge obstacles, collect pick-ups, and score goals. Playing as your favorite national team, you compete against a wealth of rival teams for the ultimate in bragging rights: The top-seat on the global leaderboard. Striker Rush: Champion Edition is available as both a "Free-To-Play" game that features in-game/in-app consumable content, and a "Premium," all-in game. The game was developed by 1DER Entertainment Ltd.
