SOFTWARE TOOLWORKS ANNOUNCES STRATEGIC ALLIANCE WITH AMAZING MEDIA; TEAM TO LAUNCH MULTIMEDIA CD-ROM ADVENTURE SERIES

 NOVATO, Calif., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The Software Toolworks (NASDAQ: TWRX), the world's largest supplier of CD-ROM software, has announced a strategic alliance with Amazing Media(TM) of San Anselmo to produce a series of new multimedia CD-ROM products.
 The first in the series, "The Software Toolworks(R) Presents ... Space Shuttle," is planned to ship in July 1993. "Space Shuttle" transports you to the Johnson Space Center where you train with the astronauts, learn about the spacecraft, and join the crew on more than 50 Space Shuttle missions, participating as if you were going through the experience yourself.
 The second title, "The Software Toolworks(R) Presents ... Oceans Below(TM)" is a comprehensive video and photographic underwater experience. After selecting an ocean to explore, you visit shipwrecks, see underwater formations and watch colorful fish swim -- all from the firsthand perspective of a scuba diver.
 "The Software Toolworks(R) Presents ... Capitol Hill" puts the user in the role of a member of Congress in Washington, D.C. With a first- person perspective, users experience a congressional work day, meeting with their staffs, communicating with peers, and voting on bills. A walking tour of the Capitol allows users to explore areas of the building they wish to learn more about. Video clips, audio narrations and photography add to the realism of the experience.
 The Software Toolworks, publisher and distributor of the multimedia CD-ROM series, brings to the project its experience in publishing entertainment, reference and edutainment titles, world-wide retail and OEM distribution channels, a proprietary programming tool set, and extensive multimedia experience.
 Amazing Media is the content developer and producer with a five-year history of creating multimedia programs including the award-winning CD-ROM for Macintosh and DOS, "Clinton: Portrait of Victory(TM)."
 The CD-ROM series will be produced in DOS, MPC (Windows) and Macintosh(R) formats. "Oceans Below" will also be produced for the 3DO(TM) Interactive Multiplayer(TM). Follett Software, a division of Follett Corp., is executive producer of "Space Shuttle."
 NOTE: The Software Toolworks Inc. develops, publishes and distributes entertainment products for Sega(R) Genesis(R), Game Boy(TM), Nintendo Entertainment Systems(R) and Super Nintendo Entertainment Systems(R); entertainment and edutainment products on disk and CD-ROM for Macintosh(R) and IBM(R) PC and compatible platforms; and multimedia reference products for Macintosh and IBM platforms.
