FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE BATTLE FOR GLORY CONTINUES
AS MERIDIAN4 ANNOUNCES ‘GROTESQUE TACTICS 2: DUNGEONS & DONUTS’
Sequel to Popular RPG Parody Arrives On PC This Fall

Montreal, Quebec, Canada – June 21, 2011 – There is no rest for the weary in the Kingdom of Glory, as Meridian4 today announced they’ve expanded their partnership with Headup Games to include the new strategy role-playing game, Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts. Arriving this fall with a host of new content exclusively for the PC, Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts revisits protagonist Drake and his rag-tag bunch of unlikely heroes with a completely reworked optical style, new character creations and an original storyline.

“The Grotesque series’ unique ability to parody the genre while simultaneously advancing it through smart gameplay and unique features, results in a lighthearted entertainment experience that can be enjoyed by both hardcore and casual fans alike,” said Steve Milburn, Marketing Director of Meridian4. “The enhancements and new storyline will keep players laughing, engaged and challenged from start to finish.”

The story of Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts begins as the citizens of the Kingdom of Glory celebrate their victory over the Dark Church. While in the catacombs of their former enemies, their revelry is disturbed by a sudden all-encompassing fog. Those that remain alive after the strange attack, barricade themselves in the depths of the catacombs. As time passes, food becomes scarce and the people of the Kingdom of Glory begin to realize that they might all meet their demise. The ‘heroic’ Knights of Glory, shady mercenaries and the arrogant high elves band together into guilds in order to survive and escape the dank catacombs. Unfortunately, the guilds are far too concerned with their distaste for each other, thus allowing for an awakening of dark forces in the dungeons below.

Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts for PC will be available this fall via digital download on Steam and other channels. For more information, please visit http://www.meridian4.com.
