  1. Leading Publisher Chooses NovodeX Physics SDK for Unique Gameplay Experience

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- AGEIA(TM) Technologies,
    Inc., a company dedicated to delivering pervasive interactive reality to
    next-generation games, today announced that Atari's much-anticipated
    Dragonshard(TM), a real-time strategy game based on the Dungeons & Dragons(R)
    universe created by Wizards of the Coast, will be one of the first major games
    developed using AGEIA's NovodeX(TM) Physics SDK. Dragonshard employs an
    inventive gameplay fusion in which traditional RTS gameplay is enhanced with
    immersive, Dungeons & Dragons-styled character and unit growth.

    Such innovation is what AGEIA's NovodeX Physics SDK was designed for, and
    why leading game developers such as Atari are integrating the NovodeX software
    into their game development. NovodeX is the only SDK equipped for the future
    of hardware-accelerated physics based on the AGEIA PhysX(TM) chip. The NovodeX
    Physics SDK is also the only multithreaded physics API that will unleash the
    power of multiprocessor systems.
