SAN FRANCISCO – March 5, 2008
iWin, Inc., a leading developer and publisher of online casual games, today announced the launch of Family Feud™ Dream Home, the 6th installment of the wildly popular Family Feud™ casual game franchise. Family Feud™ Dream Home maintains the gameplay made famous by the well-known TV game show and adds a new element, allowing players to use the points they accumulate in order to buy virtual items to decorate their virtual “Dream Home”.
“Family Feud™ Dream Home brings together both the outrageous questions and answers we’ve grown to love about the franchise with a fresh take on what to do with all those points you’ve collected. Now take your hard earned points and use them in the Dream Home section to buy goodies for every room in your house,” said Peter Traugot, lead producer for the Family Feud™ franchise. “Family Feud™ Dream Home is packed with nearly 3000 new, funny and insightful questions with a slew of answers you’ll shake your head wondering; now why didn’t I think of that!”
Jason Turner, Senior Director of Interactive for FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) in North America added, “iWin continues to create great gaming experiences around our gameshow brands by inventing new ways to entertain players. Family Feud™ Dream Home introduces another layer to the game that will keep people coming back for more.”
When the original Family Feud™ casual game launched in 2005, it broke sales and download records across the casual games industry. Since its launch, the game has maintained a large fan base, with iWin creating subsequent versions of the game with thousands of new questions which leverage consumer created content submitted to iWin.com and offering a multi-player version called Family Feud™ Online Party, which has questions updated twice a week.
Even those who have played previous versions of Family Feud will find plenty of unexpected surprises in Family Feud™ Dream Home. With nearly 3000 new questions, entire families will be entertained for many a cozy, winter weekend indoors. What's more, Family Feud™ Dream Home makes players’ winnings worth something. For the first time, players can "spend" their points on items to decorate their own virtual dream home. With a broad selection of furniture, ranging from clean-cut modern pieces to priceless antiques, players can realize their inner design ambitions.
Family Feud™ Dream Home is the 6th Family Feud™ game, produced by iWin Inc. in partnership with FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME), a division of FremantleMedia, one of the largest international creators and producers of program brands in the world.
