The Absurdity of It All GodGames Returns to the Promised Lot for E3 2001 to Raise Some Hell!

The Best Live Music, a Duke Nukem Casino and More Catholic Schoolgirls Make This an E3 Extravaganza Worthy of the Hype

Dallas, TX, May 11, 2001 - Games, girls and good times!! It may sound like heaven, but it's really Hell. Hell, Texas that is. High-end computer and video game publisher GodGames makes its third Los Angeles pilgrimage this May 17-19 for the 2001 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). Ground Zero of GodGames' E3
line-up will be located at "The Promised Lot - a.k.a. Hell, Texas," a transformed parking lot (located at the corner of Pico and Figueroa) across from the LA Convention Center's main entrance. The company will show off eight PC games and one Xbox title.

Plush motor coaches flank the Lot, providing up close and personal demos of GodGames E3 line-up which includes Max Payne, FireFly Studios? Stronghold, 4x4: EVO 2, Myth III: The Wolf Age, Age of Wonders 2, Hidden & Dangerous 2, Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven and a movie trailer of Duke Nukem Forever. Limited
GodGames titles will also be highlighted within the Take-Two Interactive Software booth (#846, South Hall). All the best company E3 information and live, daily updates starting May 17th can be found at http://e3.godgames.com.

In 2001, Hell, Texas at The Promised Lot is guaranteed to be another overflowing, eye-popping experience that includes the infamous Catholic schoolgirls, live music and entertainment. A "Duke Nukem Casino" featuring blackjack tables and craps will offer E3 attendees the chance to press their luck for free and win prizes. Texas-style barbecue coupled with free drinks will be served throughout the afternoons starting at 1 PM. GodGames will also present a special dedication in memory of Doug Myres, VP of New Media and the
heart and soul of GodGames, who recently passed away.

Live music - hotter than Texas asphalt - includes such renounced acts as Lily Wilson, Peace Frog, Urban Dead, and the Flametrick Subs featuring Satan?s Cheerleaders, will rock the center stage with the aid of a 30? Jumbotron and the most massive sound system this side of the Alamo. Daily on stage demos of each
game will be given by developers from 10:00AM until 12:30PM. The coolest place to see the Hollywood-style game trailers is in the Promised Lot's huge, air-conditioned trailer/movie theater, with never-before-seen game footage. On Thursday night, May 17, GodGames will host its "Hell, Texas Trailer Trash Jamboree," a fall-down, crawl-around party in The Promised Lot. The Jamboree will kick off at 9:30 PM and last until the authorities shut it down. The Promised Lot is being co-sponsored by industry partners AMD, NVIDIA and ELSA and produced by Charger Entertainment. Attendees must be 21 years or older with ID to enter The Promised Lot.

"Saying The Promised Lot is the antithesis of every other E3 booth is an understatement," said Mike Wilson, CEO of GodGames. "It may be unconventional -- with its motor homes, school girls and Jumbotron stage -- but it's an accurate reflection of our company. This year's Promised Lot will put the past ones to shame and really give E3 attendees a memorable GodGames experience."
