RealNetworks Announces the "Twelve Games of the Holidays"

From PC and mobile to handheld, RealArcade has selected casual games for the entire family

NEW YORK (PepCom Holiday Spectacular) — September 19, 2007 —  Digital entertainment services company RealNetworks®, Inc. today unveiled the Twelve Games of the Holidays.

Whether it's the stay-at-home Mom who gets in a few minutes of computer play while the kids are napping, the traveling executive who plays mobile games during long flight delays, or the family who shares a Nintendo DS, Real's casual games division RealArcade has hand-picked these twelve games to deliver fun entertainment for everyone this holiday season. Because casual games can be easily picked up in minutes but may take a lifetime to master, these popular titles are widely enjoyed by avid gamers and novices alike.

"Just about everyone enjoys a reason to take a few minutes to themselves these days," says Garrett Link, general manager of GameHouse, Real's casual games studio. "The twelve games we've selected help shoppers give their friends and family a quick retreat, a simple method to relax, and an easy way to keep their mind active — all packaged into a fun casual game."
