John Belushi Returns to the Screen in New Social Game
GlobeNewswire
2011-10-18

          Comedy Legend Cast in First New Role Since 1981

LANGHORNE, Pa., Oct. 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Social and casual
game developer Entertainment Games, Inc. (Pink Sheets:EGAM) today
announced it has licensed images of John Belushi for use in its
ambitious new social game for Facebook, Google+, Mobile devices and the
open web. The iconic comedy legend will join Elvis Presley and other
celebrities as characters in a soon-to-be launched, story-driven online
game developed on the company's proprietary Heyday platform.

The rights to use the name and images of John Belushi were licensed
through CMG Worldwide, a leading agency representing many of the most
recognized names in sports, music and entertainment. John Belushi burst
onto the comedy scene in 1975 as an original cast member of Saturday
Night Live. He also starred in box office hits like Animal House (1978)
and The Blues Brothers (1980) that established him as a predominant
cultural icon of his era.

"Everyone remembers the comic genius of John Belushi," said Gene Mauro,
President of Entertainment Games. "He brought laughter to the world,
and it's truly exciting to cast him in new roles and feature him on
virtual goods in our new social game. We're honored to be associated
with CMG Worldwide and John Belushi and look forward to announcing more
of our game's celebrity cast members as we approach our product
launch."
