SANCTUARY WOODS BREAKS THE BOYS CLUB IN COMPUTER GAMES

 SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanctuary Woods Multimedia Inc. (NASDAQ: SWMCF; VSE: SWD.V) today introduced Hawaii High, a series of interactive mystery adventures for girls in the tradition of Nancy Drew. The first product in the series, The Mystery of the Tiki, is available now in CD-ROM format for Windows and Macintosh computers.
 Hawaii High, which follows the adventures of two high school friends at Hawaii High, has been produced especially for girls ages 8-12.
 Although girls represent some 30 percent of new game players in the United States, they are frequently left by the wayside in the interactive marketplace which generally caters to a young male audience with homogenous orientations. In an effort to change this, Sanctuary Woods has teamed up with one of America's leading storyteller for girls, Trina Robbins, to create interactive stories for the Hawaii High series that draw on girls' interests and provide strong, positive female heroines.
 A renowned comic book artist and children's book writer, Trina Robbins is a writer and artist for Barbie Comics and is the first woman in comic book history to draw Wonder Woman.
 In The Mystery of the Tiki, players help young friends Jennifer and Maleah in their search to solve the mystery of a stolen Hawaiian Tiki. Along the way, they interact with many characters, both friend and foe. And with help from the players, they must research exotic legends for clues, solve perplexing puzzles and master Hawaiian history to solve the mystery.
 Available at a suggested retail price of $39.95, Sanctuary Woods' Hawaii High: The Mystery of the Tiki is distributed in North America by Electronic Arts Distribution and sold through computer retail and consumer electronics stores.
 Sanctuary Woods Multimedia Inc. is a leading developer of family-oriented entertainment and educational multimedia titles distributed on CD-ROM for Windows PC, Macintosh and 3DO platforms.
