April 07, 2014 --
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 04/07/14 -- Soul and Vibe Interactive Inc. (OTCQB: SOUL), "The Company," a video, mobile, and computer games publisher, announced today that it will add Bram Stoker's classic book, Dracula, to the Timeless Gems library. Dracula is the first expansion "book" for the Timeless Gems game. Its release will add an all-new interactive storyline and new play mechanics to the game's innovative "match-3" gameplay experience that has garnered praise from both players and the press.
The Company announced on March 31st, 2014 that the download rate for Timeless Gems tripled in the preceding two-week period.
Dracula will be released in early April 2014 for all Timeless Gems platform versions. Timeless Gems was launched worldwide on Facebook on February 3rd, 2014, on Apple's App Store on March 12th, 2014, and on Google Play on March 19th, 2014.
"Everyone loves vampires," teased Soul and Vibe's CEO and President Peter Anthony Chiodo. "Dracula is one of the most popular and legendary characters in literature and he has inspired myriad movies, comics, television series, and contemporary novels. Dracula is a great addition to the Timeless Gems library as it presents great story, gameplay, and color contrast to the previously released Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz books that launched with the game. Because of this contrast, we anticipate the inclusion of Dracula in the Timeless Gems library will further expand the rapidly growing audience attracted to our game."
Volume I, Issue II of Soul and Vibe's official newsletter, released via www.soulandvibe.com on Monday March 10th, 2014, hinted what the initial expansion book might be to newsletter subscribers.
"The Dracula book expansion adds some extremely compelling content to Timeless Gems," said Soul and Vibe's Quality Assurance Manager, Tim Moravec. "Dracula, as a book, features six new chapters and 37 all new puzzles. It introduces new mechanics involving shadow and light that play to the unique characteristics of Dracula, as a story. It is also the first book in the Timeless Gems library that features multiple playable characters. In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, you were always Alice and Dorothy in their respective books but, in Dracula, you play as Jonathan Harker, Van Helsing, Lucy Westenra, Mina Murray, and some other cool surprises."
In Timeless Gems, your favorite storybooks come to life in an innovative "match-3" puzzler that's wrapped in a board game. Timeless Gems creates an innovative play experience by combining highly popular "match-3" game play with board game elements. This combination lets players experience classic stories like Dracula, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in a whole new way. Playing as core characters from the classic books in the Timeless Gems library, you'll meet a colorful cast of heroes and villains. Match gems, power up, and connect and play with your friends on Facebook. The game was developed by Telos Entertainment.
