LOS ANGELES - Saturday, January 22nd 2011 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Left Behind Games Inc.(OTC:LFBG), dba LB Games®, the leading publisher of exclusively Christian video games, announced today that it has acquired the assets of MyPraize®, one of the largest Christian social media networks, established in 2005. LB Games’ CEO, Troy Lyndon, says, “The MyPraize® acquisition is strategic because it expands our reach to new customers while providing the platform to connect regularly with them.” MyPraize is currently online at www.mypraize.com.
MyPraize currently enjoys more than 140,000 recently active subscribers. Matt Gaiser, Site Administrator for MyPraize, says, “We’ve been excited to see how our online community has thrived.

MyPraize Founder, Joshua Holmes, says, “Working with LB Games these past 2 months has resulted in remarkable synergy.” MyPraize 2.0 is expected to be released later this year, is written in Java, and will sport an online Christian marketplace focused on the interests of faith-based audiences, including those who buy Christian music, videos and more.
