Superscape has signed an exclusive licensing and co-publishing agreement with Global Wireless Entertainment (GWE) for the Evel Knievel brand. Under the terms of the agreement, Superscape will develop a new 3D game entitled Evel-ution, which will be published and marketed by both companies worldwide.
The game, which will be designed and developed using Superscape's Swerve 3D technology will run on both Java and BREW-based mobile handsets and will be launched in Q2 2004.
The 3D Evel-ution game will allow players to control Evel Knievel as he rides through a series of obstacles and jumps, gaining points as he progresses. Various levels are included in the game which take Evel over ramps made of cars, buses, trucks and fountains. Players will need to use considerable skill to control the speed and balance of Evel as they move towards the 'Main Event' which will include the Vegas Fountain jump, the 13 Mack Truck jump and a stadium packed with fourteen Greyhound buses in King's Island.
Kevin Roberts, CEO, Superscape Group plc said: "Evel Knievel is a name that is known throughout the world as the world's first and still most exciting motorcycle daredevil. Both PC and Game Boy-based games have been developed, but our agreement with GWE will see Evel Knievel come to the small screen of mobile phones for the very first time. Given the worldwide interest in this personality and his spectacular exploits, I believe that the new Evel-ution game will prove to be a great hit for gamers worldwide."
