Indiagames Launches NBC's The Office Series of Mobile Phone Games based on the Hit Comedy

Nationwide Rollout begins August 1 on Verizon, Cingular & Sprint Networks

Universal City, Calif. -- August 1, 2006 -- NBC Universal continues its push into the lucrative mobile games market with this week's launch of NBC's The Office Games mobile game. Developed and produced by Indiagames, the series of six mini-games is scheduled for soft release beginning July 31st. The game will be available on all cellular devices and providers by September. The Office currently airs Thursdays, 9:30-10:00 p.m. ET, and will move to 8:30-9:00 p.m. ET in September.

"Indiagames has really stepped up to the plate on this one," said Jeremy Laws, senior vice president Universal Mobile Entertainment. "I think The Office Games is quintessential made-for-mobile entertainment."

NBC's The Office Games features the well-loved characters from the television series participating in a selection of cubical game-play including Wasteketball, Paper-Football (Hateball), Table-Top Golf, Office Paper War, Chair-Racing and more � everything Michael Scott would not approve of.

Indiagames developed these user-friendly games to be played at your office or at home. With shorter play times, the array of games is easy to navigate and simple to play--perfect for a break, after a stressful meeting, or on an awkward phone call.

"We'd like to see America's workplaces fraught with the tension of intense competition at chair races and wasteketball! And, we wanted to give our consumers a game that is fun and provides value for your money. We think we've accomplished both of these goals with the launch of NBC's The Office Games," said Vishal Gondal, CEO of Indiagames.

About The Office

Recently nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, "The Office" takes a painfully funny look at the interactions of the desk jockeys at Dunder Mifflin paper-supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Jenna Fischer ("Slither"), John Krasinski ("Jarhead," "Kinsey"), Rainn Wilson ("Six Feet Under"), and B.J. Novak ("Punk'd") star as the employees who tolerate Michael's inappropriate behavior only because he signs their paychecks. Also starring are Melora Hardin as Jan Levinson, David Denman as Roy, Leslie David Baker as Stanley Hudson, Brian Baumgartner as Kevin Malone, Kate Flannery as Meredith Palmer, Angela Kinsey as Angela Martin, Oscar Nu�ez as Oscar Martinez and Phyllis Smith as Phyllis Lapin.
