CEO in all of Us

Ever thrown a lawyer off a pier? Hacked into a mainframe to swipe classified information? If not and you've always wanted to, Red Storm Entertainment invites you to go into business with Tom Clancy's ruthless.com.

The innovative multiple-media gaming company that brought you Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six and Dominant Species today announced the launch of Tom Clancy's ruthless.com, Red Storm Entertainment's third major title to be released this fall.

In keeping with the company's unique cross-marketing strategy, Tom Clancy's ruthless.com is a PC CD-ROM game based on a story concept by Clancy and is also available as a paperback novel by the same name. Released in October, the book immediately landed at No.1 on the New York Times paperback bestseller list.

Tom Clancy's ruthless.com the game is a great holiday gift for corporate executives - or anyone who has ever wanted to be one. In this simultaneous turn-based strategy game set in the modern-day world of the cutthroat software industry, players take the role of software corporation CEOs. They must battle it out in single-player games or in multi-player bouts with one to six competitors all striving to be number one. Actions will go far beyond mundane buyouts and executive raids, with players investing time and money into legal battles, criminal dirty tricks and hacking runs. If your employees fail you, drown them in paperwork. Or just drown them.

"Tom Clancy's ruthless.com has become my favorite Red Storm game," said Red Storm Entertainment President and CEO Doug Littlejohns. "I've loaded it on my laptop and I can happily rule my software empire from anywhere in the world. I can do all those things in the game which I am often tempted to do in real life but can't!"

Gaming industry experts have already given the game high praise. PC Gamer named it one of the Hot 100 of 1998, saying "Corporate raider wannabes, take note: Tom Clancy's ruthless.com may be just the thing you're looking for." Computer Games Strategy Plus called it "Corporate nastiness for fun and profit," and Nash Werner of games.net said "With its high replayability factor, in-depth multiplayer scenarios and adjustable artificial intelligence settings...I just can't wait to get my hands on it."

Tom Clancy's ruthless.com is now available at major retailers across the United States.
