This May, To Save the Earth from Nasty Teenage Aliens, Gamers will Seek Out Supermodels to Strip Them Down to Their Bra and Panties to Save the Earth from Nasty Teenage Aliens

NEW YORK, February 8, 2000 - This May, Simon & Schuster Interactive will ship a CD-ROM game where only the sexy underwear of supermodels will save the Earth - "PANTY RAIDER: FROM HERE TO IMMATURITY" (PC/MAC hybrid CD-ROM, $19.95). PANTY RAIDER takes gamers to Model Isle where a supermodel photo shoot is taking place. The player is on a mission to photograph specific styles and colors of panties worn by supermodels to satisfy three testosterone-driven teenage aliens and keep them from blowing up the Earth.

Background: One day, a catalog from a famous lingerie store inexplicably showed up in the mailbox at one horny teenage alien's home. Some time later, he and his two buddies had worn out the catalog and they needed more! So they hijacked their father's flying saucer for a joy ride across the universe in search of supermodels in their underwear. The player assumes the role of "Nelson," an innocent bystander who is forced to help the aliens in their perverted quest. Nelson's job is to photograph specific models, wearing specific types and colors of underwear (as specified by the aliens). If Nelson does not get the photos that the aliens are asking for, in the amount of time given, the aliens will destroy Earth.

Overview: The game is played from Nelson's point of view. Each game begins with the aliens telling Nelson which girls, wearing what underwear he will need to photograph for that mission. He will be teleported to the Model Isle and the clock will begin ticking. Once on the island, Nelson can use all the tools available to him:

* Pick up lines - Use cheesy pickup lines to lure models out of the woods.
* X-Ray glasses - You know the ones seen in the back of comic books? These actually work - allowing the player to see what kind of underwear each girl is wearing, before they go through the process of undressing her. Keep in mind if you waste too much time undressing a supermodel...BOOM! Earth will be destroyed! Can you control yourself?
* Goop - The secret substance that is thrown at the models and mysteriously removes their clothing.
* Lures - Items such as tiny mints (lunch!) and credit cards. No self-respecting supermodel can resist these items.
* Camera - Once the correct model is found wearing the right panties, and the outer clothing has been removed, it's time to use the camera to photograph the model. These photos are then added to the player's inventory.

If all the correct models in the correct lingerie are photographed within the given amount of time, Earth is saved. Otherwise, the frustrated teenage aliens are forced to take their hormone driven anger out on the planet.
