HYDERABAD, India, and LOS ANGELES, Calif. - July 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Game Shastra (aka Gameshastra), India's largest game services provider, has signed a Master Game Development Agreement with Freeze Tag, a California based casual game publisher and developer. Game Shastra will develop and Freeze Tag will publish "Etch A Sketch(R)," a new game inspired by the classic toy from The Ohio Art Company. Under the terms of the agreement, Game Shastra will develop PC, Web, and Mac versions of the game, as well as any future versions for platforms such as Xbox 360 Live Arcade and Nintendo Wii.

(c) Send2PressCraig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag says, "We have worked with many offshore developers, and Game Shastra is the first company that has truly 'exported' US game development expertise and management to its offshore operation, while still maintaining a US onshore staff in key developer roles. Game Shastra's talented and experienced management team and competitive pricing were attractive features, but the main reason we picked Game Shastra to develop our high-value licenses was simply the opportunity to work with a really great game development team."

Prakash Ahuja, CEO, of Game Shastra, says "We think Freeze Tag as a publisher has great vision for identifying good titles. It has chosen some very exciting and unique licenses that we hope to develop jointly under this partnership."

Ahuja continues, "This agreement with Freeze Tag reiterates our position as a leading global game services provider for both Core and Casual games."
