Van Nuys, CA, December 1, 2006 - Longtime Visual Effects Supervisor Roger Nall has launched Red Rover Games and RedRoverGames.com, a new web-based business which will develop and distribute original casual games for consumers to download and play. The company‘s tagline is “Casual Games for Casual Gamers.” Concurrently, Mr. Nall remains the president of the award winning media company 11:11 MediaWorks, and will continue to also produce visual effects for feature films and television.

During the past eight years, Mr. Nall has worked as Visual Effects Supervisor and Facility Supervisor for numerous projects including; “The Omen,” “Van Wilder 2: The Rise Of Taj,” “Night Skies,” “Kalamazoo?,” “The Terminal,” “Cheaper by the Dozen,” “Out of the Black,” “Blessed Art Thou,” “The Crow: Salvation,” and the CBS mini series “American Tragedy .”

“Lost in the Labyrinth,” a unique maze game, debuts as the first release from the newly formed Red Rover Games.

“Our new company will be creating original downloadable casual games for the ever-expanding casual game market,” Nall said. “Every game will be available in a free Web-playable form and a downloadable demo form, with just a few feature limitations. All Red Rover Games products will be available for purchase in either a Mac or Windows format for the same low price --- $19.95. While we are committed to bringing our high quality entertaining games to both platforms, we‘re long-time Mac enthusiasts and will always support the Mac platform and market.”

The new company‘s lead designer and game developer is Nall‘s son Robert Nall, designer of “R/C Muscle,” a radio control car racing/sim game, as well as “0-Day,” an on-line multi-player game.

Roger Nall described “Lost in the Labyrinth” as a virtual version of the old-fashioned wooden maze game. “It‘s for 1-2 players of all ages. You maneuver your ball from the start to the end point as fast as you can, while dodging bumpers and avoiding holes. You can also grab a friend and play a head to head race on over 30 boards.”

In addition to “Lost in the Labyrinth,” the company will also distribute a unique new line of original merchandise, including T-shirts, mugs, and apparel for dogs.
