Stompy Bot Sets its Eye on eSports in 2016 and Announces $2.0 Million Financing

Web, Finance

SAINT JOHN, NEW BRUNSWICK, Nov 25, 2015 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Stompy Bot Corporation ("Stompy Bot" or the "Corporation") (cse:BOT) announces that it intends to issue up to 25,000,000 units of the Corporation (the "Units") at a price of $0.08 per Unit, for total gross proceeds of approximately $2,000,000 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit will be comprised of one common share (a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire a Common Share at a price of $0.12 per share for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of issuance. The Private Placement is scheduled to close on or about December 3, 2015 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.

The Corporation is also pleased to provide an update with respect to Heavy Gear Assault, its flagship video game.

Stompy Bot is very excited to be in the middle of the fastest growing segment of the videogames industry. Stompy's flagship eSports title Heavy Gear Assault entered early access in August and is under development for a final release in 2016. James Taylor, President at Stompy Bot, had this to say, "I look forward to sponsored tournaments, cash-prize pools, and massive viewership of Heavy Gear Assault tournaments in 2016. As an old school PC Gamer, I have waited for eSports to go mainstream for many years. The Mech game genre is fiercely competitive - perfect for a successful eSports title like Heavy Gear Assault."

Turner Broadcasting announced in September 2015 that it will bring an unnamed gaming series to television, specifically to the Turner-owned TBS. Arguably one of the most successful eSports title Counter Strike will be featured on the first season of the televised competition(2).

Turner's announcement comes on the heels of ESPN magazine's June 22 issue and the article entitled "Resistance is futile: eSports is massive ... and growing". A clip from the article reads "Open with a stadium full of screaming fans. Zoom in on the contestants, sweating from the intensity of the competition. Then comes the incredulous reveal: This isn't basketball or boxing or even billiards. It's eSports-and the "athletes" are headset-wearing, energy-drink-guzzling gamers."

According to ESPN, League of Legend's eSports streaming is now second only to the Super Bowl with 27M viewers(3).

The videogames industry as a whole has enjoyed significant growth year after year. Now toppling both Hollywood and music combined - worth a staggering $111 billion(4). Competition is fierce in today's digital video games with cash prize pools often in the $10s of millions. Stompy Bot looks to announce its first cash prize tournament by Q1 2016.

HEAVY GEAR ASSAULT ENTERS EARLY ACCESS

Aug 7th, 2015
Posted by Admin
Web, Digital

SAINT JOHN, Canada – Aug. 7, 2015 – Independent developer Stompy Bot Productions today announced that its upcoming PC mech title, Heavy Gear Assault, has entered the Early Access phase of development. The action-packed mech game now features the Gear Bay module, which gives players unparalleled customization of their Gears (as the mechs are known in the game), alongside a wealth of optimizations and gameplay polish.

There are over ten different stock Gears that players can choose from, and every piece from shoulders to torsos to lower legs are interchangeable, resulting in hundreds of thousands of different combinations. Layer dozens of weapons into the mix that range from lasers, sniper rifles, and automatics and you have a recipe for complete and utter madness. Each Gear can also be equipped with jetpacks, grenades and other features, but defense will also be important as each individual part can be damaged, so a leg or arm may be rendered useless quickly in battle.

“This new phase of development has really energized our team, and we’re eager to keep the momentum going full speed. Our early supporters have been dying to share their excitement with the world since it’s been underwraps, and we’re thrilled to see more players join in and provide vital feedback as we gear up for our full launch next year,” said John Nguyen, Marketing Director of Stompy Bot Productions.

In Heavy Gear Assault, players venture to the distant planet Terra Nova and pilot giant, highly customizable Gears. Featuring a range of dynamic combat, customizations, gameplay modes and esport features, Heavy Gear Assault offers players a wealth of gameplay that brings the Heavy Gear universe to life. Various gameplay modes keep things fresh with advanced dueling in team battles, like the standard Deathmatch and more strategic Brunes Ball.

Following a modular release strategy, the team behind Heavy Gear Assault plans to implement all upcoming game features over a series of patches to Early Access players. With the move, players are now able to share live streams, screenshots, videos, and openly talk about the game.

Heavy Gear Assault is on track to officially release on PC, with full Linux support and compatibility between Windows and Linux users, in 2016. For more information, please visit www.heavygear.com.
