LOS ANGELES, Calif. – August 4, 2010 – SNAIL GAMES USA today announced the launch of a new payment channel for its online gaming community with Go Cash Game Cards.

Go Cash Game Cards can now be used by online gamers of all ages to access premium items on Snail Games free-to-play online MMO game titles, such as Heroes of Gaia and the upcoming Ministry of War, through an easy, safe, and secure process. The cards are now available for purchase in thousands of GameStop, 7-Eleven, and Walgreens retail outlets across the U.S., plus many other locations.

Ministry of War (MoW) is currently in Closed Beta and is an historical real-time strategy (RTS) browser-based MMO, and represents a quantum leap forward in Flash game design. In MoW, players battle for conquest and territory as one of four ancient civilizations (Imperial Rome, China, Egypt, or Persia) using the game’s revolutionary combat and land-control systems. The game also boasts robust Quest, Resource, Trade, and Leveling, and Guild Systems, making MoW the first of its kind among browser games. The game is free to play and requires no download, so MoW can be played instantly from anywhere.

Requests for MoW beta keys can be made at www.ministryofwar.com.

"We are excited at the opportunity to work with a mega-developer like Snail Games and we're are anticipating a successful launch," said Go Cash CEO Steven Kim. We recently tested the beta version of Ministry of War and are convinced that it will be a smash success."
