Uproar 2008Online casual gaming is a big business, generating more than $690 million in revenue each year. As the market has grown, it has become increasingly difficult for casual gamers - typically 25-45 year old females - to find unbiased information and advice.

"Sorting through all the information for casual gaming can be overwhelming," states Steve Lombardi, President of Firstlook. "Uproar's mission is to help casual gamers play more and search less."
