Wal-Mart Approves Market Test for Left Behind Games
Left Behind Games Inc. (OTCBB: LFBG), a dba of Inspired Media, announces that Wal-Mart, the nations largest retailer, has approved a test market in various of their stores for Left Behind Games. This should position LFBG to have the games in place in time for the Christmas shopping season. In addition, the company is in the process of hiring new marketing representatives throughout the U.S. Their efforts, combined with Wal-Mart sales, are expected to provide an explosive marketing surge starting within the next few months.
The PC game, LEFT BEHIND II: Tribulation Forces, was just released for worldwide distribution through mainstream markets on June 15th. Tribulation Forces is the much-awaited sequel to the original game LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces, which is known as the most widely distributed Christian PC game in history. Overall, the sale of PC games has grown exponentially, and PricewaterhouseCoopers, known for their astute analysis of business conditions and trends, predicts that the sale of software games will reach $21.6 Billion by 2013.
Inspired Media CEO Troy Lyndon conservatively projects that Christian games will capture at least 1% of that market, or $210 million annually by 2013. He says that in contrast to almost all PC games now available, Inspired Media games encourage positive decisions and actions. Rather than the usual "winning" by using weapons and killing the enemy, players are rewarded when their characters use the power of influence to bring about good rather than destruction.
He believes that the approach incorporated in all of the Inspired Media games can help to counteract the violence affecting gamers who at times have acted out aggressively in real life. Due to the positive thought patterns encouraged by the games, he would like to be contacted by anyone in a prison ministry who might be interested in obtaining a grant to enable the games — along with the equipment to use them — to be placed in prisons for rehabilitative purposes.
Tribulation Forces has significant new features and improvements including maps and missions. The game includes 45 single player missions including tutorials and an all-new skirmish mode to be played alone or with up to seven friends online. There are 39 skirmish battle multiplayer maps and three different multiplayer modes of play.
In addition to the new game, Inspired Media has produced and currently has on the market three Charlie Church Mouse Games for pre-school, kindergarten and early elementary players, as well as Keys to The Kingdom, and Left Behind: Eternal Forces, all of which are available to be marketed by company representatives.

eDOORWAYS to Announce Launch Plans on 2nd Shareholder Conference Call
eDOORWAYS Corporation's (OTC: EDWY) Chairman & CEO, Gary Kimmons, takes to the bully pulpit once more as the company is prepared to address the market regarding the launch date of the much anticipated eDOORWAYS platform.
Come Monday, June 29th, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. (ET), shareholders of eDOORWAYS Corp. will have the chance to once again speak with the company's CEO. With the primary question being, "when is the platform launching," the company aims to deliver favorable news as it continues to enlist shareholder support.
"It feels really good to know that we can release the dates everyone's been waiting for," stated Gary Kimmons. "This launch required much more than those outside of our walls would expect. Especially given the economic fallout which dramatically affected the retail markets; a target audience for the 'SOLVE' doorway. But wait until the world sees what we had cooking."
Kimmons did not provide much insight into the call's agenda. However, those close to the company have indicated that Kristen Claflin, the company's Brand Marketing and Site Monetization Strategy Consultant, will make her presence known as she is slated to co-head this call with Kimmons. It is also believed that Mr. Kimmons could reveal the next expected doorway; which would also answer some questions about what's been going on at the company these past few months.
So long as the launch date is favorable and eDOORWAYS demonstrates the ability to continue an aggressive pursuit of its business model, the unwavering optimism shown by eDOORWAYS enthusiasts may soon be shared by all shareholders after the June 29th conference call.
