    CHALLENGING ... NOSTALGIC ... FAST-PACED: GOOD REASONS TO PLAY THE $100,000 PYRAMID ON THE PC! BE A CONTESTANT ON THE $100,000 PYRAMID GAME SHOW RIGHT ON YOUR PC.

    BELLEVUE, Wash. - March 22, 2001 - Sierra(TM) today announced the software release of the game show favorite, The $100,000 Pyramid(TM), developed by Hypnotix, Inc. Players won't need to jump through hoops to be a contestant on this classic quick-thinking game of words and categories - they're just a point and click away from the Winner's Circle and $100,000. The $100,000 Pyramid is easy to play, fast-paced and entertaining to play alone, with a friend or with a group of friends.

    The $100,000 Pyramid from Sierra provides an interactive experience true to the original game-play mechanics. Players will appreciate the nostalgic depiction of the original Pyramid television series which ran from 1973 through the early '90s, and was recently rated by TV Guide as the #6 greatest game show of all time*. From the familiar pyramid kiosk of categories to the animated celebrities and fast-paced play, The $100,000 Pyramid from Sierra is sure to be a refreshing, nostalgic addition to any virtual game closet.

    "Sierra's latest release, The $100,000 Pyramid, offers unique game play unlike any other available on the PC games market today," said Heidi McCory, associate brand manager for Sierra. "The Party mode changes the typical role of the PC from a 'single player' to a 'virtual host' intended solely to facilitate the competition between the two teams - it's an innovative way to utilize your PC for a party-starter!"

    The $100,000 Pyramid Features:
    • Easy-to-play, fast-paced and entertaining alone or with a group of friends.
    • Contestants can choose to play in Single Player, Two Player, and Party modes.
    • Animated "Celebrity" characters partner up with players (contestants) in Single- and Two Player modes and give verbal clues directly to the player on a variety of challenging topics.
    • In Party mode, players divide into teams to give and receive clues to and from each other, rather than from the "celebrity" character.
    • True to the set, music and ambience of the original television series!


    The $100,000 Pyramid, licensed from Sony Pictures Consumer Products, is available for Windows(r) 95/98/Me for $19.99 at local software retailers, by calling 800-757-7707, or by visiting www.SierraGameShows.com.

    Experience the thrill of guessing as many words in a category as you can before the clock runs out. Partner up with a “celebrity” character that gives you verbal clues and reacts when you win or lose. Then move to the Winner’s Circle to guess the category! It’s easy, fast-paced and fun!
