AGDC: Kwari, Bitcasters Developing MMOs With BigWorld

AGDC: Kwari, Bitcasters Developing MMOs With BigWorld

September 5, 2007 | By Leigh Alexander




Two new companies have announced licenses of BigWorld Technology Suite, an MMO content development tool; London-based firm Kwari for its recently announced "pay-to-kill" online first-person shooter, and developer Bitcasters for an MMO based around its Storm Hawks animated series.

The Australia-based BigWorld licenses its middleware, comprised of the BigWorld Server, Content Creation Tools, 3D Client Engine, and Live Management Tools and Instrumentation, to game studios developing MMOs and virtual worlds.

"Kwari is creating a new arena of online gaming that is set to change the way we play games," said John De Margheriti, BigWorld CEO. "We are pleased to provide a technology platform that will allow their innovative game ideas to come to life, and we 're confident of the huge appeal that their online products are sure to bring to the market."

Bitcasters adds that, along with broadcast partners YTV and Cartoon Network who are broadcasting the show internationally, it will tie the Storm Hawks Spinmaster toy line and other Storm Hawks products into the online experience it's developing on the BigWorld platform.

"We're very excited to be working with Bitcasters on bringing the Storm Hawks series online." said BigWorld VP of business development Gavin Longhurst. "Their talented development team has made the most of BigWorld's full solution to bring the great characters, great stories and the world of Atmos alive in a unique online experience."
