Flashman Studios announced today their new partnership with Bongfish, an Austrian development studio that specializes in creating highly authentic extreme sports videogame experiences. Bongfish is the studio responsible for the recently released, critically-acclaimed snowboarding title Stoked for the Xbox 360. Flashman will now handle business management responsibilities for Bongfish, including corporate strategy and managing publishing deals.
Formed in 1999, Bongfish is a team consisting of 25 seasoned developers committed to creating authentic and fully licensed action sports videogame using their proprietary engine, Soma. The Soma Engine features unparalleled terrain resolution, fully scalable representation streaming, tight PhysX integration and seamless multiplayer support. All these features were on full display in Stoked, released earlier this year. Games Radar raved, “Offering a compelling, substantial simulation of the sport, Stoked is the best option for virtual powder fiends we’ve seen in some time.” And Game Informer magazine said that “Bongfish has taken steps in the right direction for setting the new standard for snowboard titles…and in the end, gives Shaun White a snowball to the face.”
Bongfish is also premiering a teaser-movie for an upcoming title which will be available for gamers later this year. Head over to Game Trailers to check out the exclusive new footage of this title: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/exclusive-debut-stoked-dc/53489.
