IN-FUSIO, SCI FI CHANNEL AND UNIVERSAL STUDIOS CONSUMER PRODUCTS GROUP JOIN FORCES TO LAUNCH BATTLESTAR GALACTICA MOBILE GAME

Partnership with IN-FUSIO Marks SCI FI's First Mobile Entertainment Offering

Los Angeles, CA. -- March 21, 2006 -- IN-FUSIO, a leading international mobile games publisher, announced today that it is teaming with SCI FI Channel through an agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group to launch Battlestar Galactica Mobile. The new game, based on the popular TV series, is now available to download via major wireless carriers through out North America.

"Battlestar Galactica is SCI FI's biggest hit so we're thrilled to use it as a platform for our first foray into mobile entertainment," said Adam Stotsky, SVP of Marketing and Creative, SCI FI. "We're pleased to have an industry leader like IN-FUSIO as our partner and look forward to a long and exciting partnership with them."

"Battlestar Galactica has continued to evolve since its launch in the 1970's and is one of the most beloved sci-fi franchises of all time," said Juergen Goeldner, executive vice president of publishing, IN-FUSIO. "We are very proud of the fact that SCI FI has entrusted us with such a popular brand and we look forward to re-imagining it for mobile."

Inspired by the classic series, Battlestar Galactica was re-imagined by the SCI FI Channel and NBC Universal Television Studio in December of 2003 in the form of a 4-hour miniseries event. Capturing a new generation of fans, Battlestar Galactica became the most-watched cable miniseries of the year and led SCI FI to continue the saga through a one-hour weekly series. Redefining the space opera with its gritty realism, the new Galactica, executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, has distinguished itself by the intensity and present day relevance of its stories and the command performances of its ensemble cast. Now one of television's most critically-lauded shows, Battlestar Galactica just aired its season two finale - an extended 90-minute episode that that aired Friday, March 10 at 10pm ET/PT. The show has been renewed for a third season that will begin production in April 2006.

Battlestar Galactica Mobile captures the thrill and suspense of the popular show. Starting as a rookie pilot, players take over the controls of the Colonial Viper Mark VII high performance fighter and are drawn quickly into the ongoing interstellar war. Fighting their way through 11 action packed levels and a variety of missions, players will be put to the test as they battle head-to-head with the deadly Cylons.

"The team at IN-FUSIO have truly embraced this brand and have created addictive, visually compelling gameplay that will satisfy current and future fans of Battlestar Galactica," said Jeremy Laws, senior vice president of Universal Mobile Entertainment.

IN-FUSIO and SCI FI will roll out additional Battlestar Galactica mobile entertainment applications throughout the year and as the third season of the TV series begins in fall 2006.
