    Set in the city of New Radius, Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure features a world where freedom of expression is suppressed and graffiti has been outlawed by a tyrannical city government. In the game, players assume the role of Trane as they learn and master various graf skills as they journey from toy (beginner) to legend. During their quest, players find themselves with an even greater burden - to use their high-wire graffiti talents to expose the oppressive mayor and rid the city of his stranglehold.

    Developed by The Collective, Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure is slated for release in November for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, and Windows. A mobile version is currently available through Glu Mobile. More information about the game is available at http://www.gettingup.com.
