No Comment 31 Views

Heatwave Interactive, a game development studio and online publisher creating innovative cross-media properties, announced today the acquisition of the intellectual property rights and all assets for Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising, the Roman mythology themed Massively Multiplayer Online game.  As part of the transaction with PlayGrid, Heatwave also obtained a source code license to the PlayGrid Platform, their online game publishing technology as well as acquiring two game development engines.

“Heatwave’s philosophy is to identify and develop world class IP, and we believe the project is just that,” said Anthony Castoro, co-founder and CEO, Heatwave Interactive. “With this acquisition Heatwave greatly expands its core development capabilities as well as adding a well-known, award-winning title to its expanding intellectual property portfolio. This game hits the Heatwave ‘HIP’ mark in terms of its social gaming features and the intrinsic entertainment value found in its mythological storyline, high action adventure and beautiful art style. ”

The newly acquired game engines, previously developed by Perpetual Entertainment for in-development titles Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising and Star Trek Online, will serve as the technology foundation for Heatwave’s planned roster of MMOs.

Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising is a full scale action adventure MMO that immerses the audience in Roman mythology. Players step into a hero’s sandals to battle monsters and command minions while seeking favor from the gods. Heralded at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in 2006 as “Best in Show” by leading MMO sites Allakhazam and TenTonHammer, and dubbed “Game of Show” and “Best Graphics” by MMORPG, God & Heroes was in closed beta when production was halted in 2007.
