Acclaim Invites South Park Fans To Party In "Chef's Luv Shack" Video Game.

GLEN COVE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 23, 1999--

New Party Game to Warp Gamer's Minds with Hilarious Trivia

and Blister their Hands with Mini-Game Mayhem

Acclaim Studios (NASDAQ:AKLM), a leading worldwide interactive entertainment company, today announced the development of South Park: Chef's Luv Shack, a new multiplayer-style trivia game that will challenge players to both outwit and out-play their opponents. Developed by Acclaim Studios Austin, creators of Acclaim's successful South Park game released last year for the Nintendo 64 and PC, South Park: Chef's Luv Shack will be released for the PC, Nintendo 64, and Sony PlayStation this Fall. The game is based on Comedy Central's hit animated series "South Park."

"Fans of South Park are going to love Chef's Luv Shack," said Tom Bass, product manager at Acclaim Entertainment. "The combination of trivia and South Park-inspired mini-games will make the perfect party game."

South Park: Chef's Luv Shack is a multi-player party experience hosted by the swinging lothario, Chef. Up to four gamers take the role of Cartman, Kenny, Kyle, or Stan and compete in a combination of wacky trivia showdowns and South Park episode-inspired mini-games such as "Cartman's German Song," "Beefcake," and "Spank the Monkey with Mr. Mackey." In "Beefcake," gamers play the role of Cartman, who hurriedly moves back and forth across the screen to gobble down cans of Weight Gain 4000 that are hurled down at him. Fans of the show will recognize Cartman's antagonists as the surly spokesmen for Weight Gain 4000.

"The South Park team had a great time coming up with wacky ideas for the mini-games," says lead designer and project manager Jools Watsham. "South Park fans will instantly appreciate how true we've remained to the cable series."

South Park: Chef's Luv Shack will feature all new hilarious soundbites created specifically for this game by the show's creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, as well as Isaac Hayes.

Acclaim's South Park franchise will be supported by a major nationwide marketing campaign that includes television, radio, online and in-store merchandising targeted to adult gamers. Acclaim has included a warning on the game's box cover informing purchasers of South Park's adult content and language.
