YoYo Games and MIPS Release Free Android(TM) Game Development Platform Exclusively for MIPS-Based(TM) Devices - GameMaker: Studio(TM) MIPS(TM) Edition Includes Features and Functionalities of GameMaker: Studio(TM) Professional

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International CES -- MIPS
Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:MIPS), a leading provider of
industry-standard processor architectures and cores for home
entertainment, networking, mobile and embedded applications, and YoYo
Games, the creator of GameMaker: Studio(TM), announced the release of
fast and easy game development software for MIPS-Based(TM) products
such as tablets and other devices. GameMaker: Studio(TM) MIPS(TM)
Edition, created by YoYo Games exclusively for MIPS-Based devices, is
now available on the YoYo Games website free-of-charge.

GameMaker: Studio MIPS Edition enables game developers to quickly and
easily create games for MIPS-Based devices and then seamlessly submit
them for publishing to multiple app stores. It includes the same
functionalities as the GameMaker: Studio Professional version plus the
Android export capability--with the exception that it publishes games
exclusively for Android devices based on the MIPS(R) architecture.

GameMaker: Studio MIPS Edition features an integrated development
environment complete with fonts, sounds, images, music and more. It
also features GameMaker Language, a powerful scripting language that
lets developers control details such as pathfinding, physics, object
interaction, particles, data structures, social networking, payment
features and a comprehensive source control scheme to facilitate game
creation within teams.

GameMaker: Studio is a leading 2D development suite for game developers
producing well-known games including They Need to Be Fed, Froad, and
Karoshi, which was named Pocket Gamer's 2012 Android Game of the Year.
With the new MIPS Edition, developers of existing GameMaker games can
quickly bring their games to MIPS-Based devices.

According to Gideon Intrater, vice president of marketing, MIPS
Technologies, "We are delighted to offer game developers the
opportunity to create games for MIPS-Based devices at no charge.
Through our collaboration with YoYo Games, game developers and students
will gain access to free development software, and owners of MIPS-Based
mobile devices can anticipate many new games and apps--continuing to
broaden the mobile ecosystem around the MIPS architecture."

"We have always believed in the importance of the MIPS architecture and
are pleased to work with MIPS to further proliferate our popular
GameMaker: Studio platform," said Sandy Duncan, chief executive officer
at YoYo Games. "With their affordable price points, MIPS-Based tablets
can reach a broad range of consumers, creating a really compelling
opportunity for game developers. Seasoned and novice game developers
can download GameMaker: Studio(TM) MIPS Edition for free and experience
the ease and power of GameMaker: Studio."
