Fourteen Game Publishers Participating in LivePitch at the Austin Game Conference

AUSTIN, Texas, August 3, 2006 - The Game Initiative, the leading producer of conferences for professionals in the computer and video game industry, announced today the participating publishers for the 4th annual LivePitch, sponsored by WildTangent Inc., unfolding at the Austin Game Conference, September 6-7-8, 2006. LivePitch applicants will have the chance to present their projects to Capcom Entertainment, Game Trust, Inc., Comcast, Stardock Entertainment, NCsoft, GoPets Inc., PlayFirst, Majesco Entertainment, Atari, Inc., Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc, MTV Networks, iWin, WildTangent, and Codemasters.

LivePitch at the Austin Game Conference is currently accepting applications from game developers with unsigned projects and is a unique opportunity for these developers to present original content to publishers looking for MMOG, PC, casual, or console games to bring to market.

LivePitch lets publishers maximize the number of studios and projects they can interact with in one location at one time. Developers get 30 minutes to demo their game and woo interested publishers one-on-one in a private meeting room at the conference. The Austin Game Conference handles the scheduling and logistics, so the developers and publishers can simply show up and get to business.

Game developers can apply online at LivePitch.

Participating publishers will review the applications and decide which projects they want to see.

Applications must be received by August 15, 2006 for consideration.
