School 26 Social Mastery Game for Teen and Tween Girls Comes to PC
New Android versions also available from Amazon and Android Market

VANCOUVER - December 15, 2011 - Silicon Sisters Interactive is expanding their School 26 series for girls ages 12 to 16 onto new platforms, with a PC version available today through publisher Oberon Media. The game includes a 1-hour free demo and can be downloaded from:http://www.iplay.com/game/School26/prod370039/New/cat30017

The debut game from Canada's first female owned and operated video game studio, School 26 released on mobile platforms earlier this year. Players assume the role of Kate, a new girl in school with a knack for helping friends survive high school's daily drama. With a focus on mastering "soft skills" such as empathy and problem solving, and a storyline brimming with real-world scenarios teens and tweens can relate to, School 26 turns the social activities many girls are naturally drawn to into unique, addictive gameplay.

"Although School 26 was originally conceived as a game for smartphones and touch-enabled tablets, since launch day we've had girls asking us to bring it out for computers," says Brenda Bailey Gershkovitch, Silicon Sisters' CEO and co-founder. "Teen girls have really connected with School 26 via Apple and Android devices, but not everyone has a smartphone. With the PC version out now and a Mac version on the way, Kate's adventures will be accessible to anyone with a computer of any type."

A new Android version of School 26 for players with Android-enabled smart phones and tablets, including the new Kindle Fire, is now available as well:http://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Sisters-Interactive-School-26/dp/B006BDHDVE

Silicon Sisters has also recently released a free-to-play version of School 26 on the Android Market, a decision fueled by the significant sales increase that resulted when a free-to-play version released for iOS in September: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.expb.school26free
