    IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 21 /EMWNews/ -- Foundation 9 Entertainment

today announced that it will showcase Monster Lab for the Wii(TM),

Gauntlet(TM) for Nintendo DS(TM) and Chimps Ahoy! for the iPhone(R) at the

Penny Arcade Expo (PAX), taking place Aug. 29-31 at the Washington State

Convention & Trade Center in Seattle, Wash. The games are in development by

two of the company's studios, Backbone Entertainment and Griptonite Games,

and will be playable by attendees at the Foundation 9 booth, #854.

    Backbone Entertainment's forthcoming original title, Monster Lab, is a

story-based RPG/action hybrid set in the eerie, supernatural world of

Uncanny Valley, where the evil Baron Mharti rules the region with a cruel

hand. Players take on the role of an apprentice scientist who must perform

a vast array of intricate experiments to create their very own monster from

over 150 available monster parts. Bringing these creations to life, gamers

can explore the land as they search for ingredients to make more monster

parts, hunt down other monsters to defeat in combat and uncover fun quests

and challenges as they attempt to vanquish the evil baron and liberate the

villagers of Uncanny Valley.

    Also developed by Backbone Entertainment, Gauntlet(TM) for the Nintendo

DS is a feature rich game that stays true to the retro gameplay of the

original arcade coin-op while boasting an updated look, additional attacks

and powers, and a new experience-based combat system. The game also

supports local and Wi-Fi support for four-player cooperative play, as well

as three competitive multiplayer modes.

    Both Monster Lab and Gauntlet are co-published by Eidos, Inc. and

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment in North America. For more

brick-breaking game where coconuts are bounced back and forth between two

player-controlled Chimps on either side of the screen, using the

Multi-Touch display. The game is currently available on the Apple App


    In addition to the games on display, Foundation 9 will hold raffles and

have a recruiting presence at the company's booth. Numerous company
