nGame Receives BAFTA Nomination
Posted: 05-Oct-2000 [Source: nGame press release]

[WAP-based game, Merchant Prince, gets nominated for award.]

British company nGame goes head to head with global giants Sega and Nintendo for the Mobile and Networked Games Award in the 2000 BAFTA Interactive Entertainment Awards.

The Cambridge-based games producers have received a nomination for their newest release, Merchant Princes, the third and latest of their roster of pioneering multi-platform games designed for WAP, interactive TV and the Internet. It is the only WAP-based nominee in its class and the only WAP game in the entire awards. Merchant Princes follows hard on the heels of the recently launched tactical hacking game, DataClash, and the compulsive Alien Fish Exchange, the first two tiles from the nGame production studio.

nGame titles are distributed on the nGame Channel which is licensed to providers such as AT&T PocketNet in the States and Mviva, Carphone Warehouse's new WAP portal in the UK. Merchant Princes is currently live on Psion's Trivanti site, and is due for launch on several other major networks shortly.

Merchant Princes represents a breakthrough in WAP gaming, a fully multi-player, persistent world game, which may be played for 5 minutes or several hours at a time. Absorbing the player in the trading economy of a booming medieval Europe, players try to improve their standing and wealth by making shrewd deals and transporting goods, while avoiding pirates, the plague and other hazards.

John M Brimacombe, nGame's CEO says: "nGame is proud to receive this nomination. It acknowledges our commitment to producing high-quality groundbreaking interactive entertainment and for the company it signals a bright future as a heavyweight force in the multi-platform interactive games industry."
