Norrkoping, Sweden -- "Leading Scandinavian computer game developer UDS has launched its new portal for interactive entertainment, www.GlobalFun.com.
"The site contains e.g. the world's first computer game that makes its possible for players on both the Internet and WAP to play against each other. The site is run by UDS' newly formed and fully-owned subsidiary for development and marketing of interactive entertainment, GlobalFun.
"The new web site is an evaluation version of GlobalFun's new portal for interactive entertainment, which will be officially launched world-wide at the end of this quarter. www.Globalfun.com is a virtual gaming community in which players all over the world can meet and play games, compete with each other or simply take a break from work. Even though the site is completely new, it already attracts approx. 16,000 visits per day from all over the world without any marketing activities whatsoever from UDS' or GlobalFun's side.
"GlobalFun is first in the world to offer its customers the option to play computer games with each other via both the Internet and WAP, on a so-called cross platform. This platform will eventually also support other types of digital channels such as digital TV. This means that players will gain a substantial amount of flexibility and increased opportunities of choice.
