NVIDIA signs "THEY“ from IMC/Metropolis quite early for their "The Way it´s meant to be played“ program

Santa Clara/Cologne/Warsaw January 10th 2008

While other companies are easing gently into the New Year, NVIDIA has started
2008 with a bang by signing an exciting new title to its developer relations
program. THEY, a mystery first person shooter from the Warsaw based developer
Metropolis Software and the German full service provider IMC has joined
NVIDIA’s The way it’s meant to be played™ program after only ten months of
development. The developer relations team at NVIDIA have had their eye on the
project since August 2007 and, although THEY is not due for release until
2009, its innovative technical and gameplay features mean the title has
already become part of this prestigious program.

Phil Wright, Head of Content Business Development EMEAI of NVIDIA: „Our
content development team constantly research the development community for
new and innovative titles and THEY has been on our radar for some time. This
is one of the earliest points in the development cycle that a game has joined
NVIDIA’s The way it’s meant to be played™ program, which gives you an idea of
how excited we are about its potential. Even in this short time IMC and
Metropolis have demonstrated proof of a professional approach and a trendsetting
concept for the future. We are happy to have signed this title, which
is already promising great things at such an early stage. THEY will be a real
highlight for our new and upcoming graphics boards.“

Cologne based service provider IMC, InteractiveMediaConsulting GmbH and the
Polish development team Metropolis Software SP. z o. o. joined forces in
April 2007, to produce a top title for the games market with a totally new
approach. With a coherent concept, interesting gameplay features and high end
graphics (DX 10 ready) the Polish-German production is currently being evaluated
by leading publishers for a world wide release in 2009 on PC and next
generation consoles. The early deal with NVIDIA allows the developer to be
excited and focused. IMC’s Head of Communication Ingo Horn: „We are happy to
join the exclusive circle of TWIMTBP developers. NVIDIA’s trust in a European
product paid off our efforts and long hours during the development of a top
title in the overcrowded market of FPS games. NVIDIA’s tech support will
further enhance the technical aspects of THEY, so we are able to release a
triple A mystery FPS in 2009, which will present future gamers with the best
graphics boards of tomorrow!“
