Following both companies recent participation at London’s ECTS show, 1C and Lifemode have agreed a second licensing contract to use LIFESTUDIO:HEAD SDK. 1C, who is Russia’s leading game and software publisher, believes that signing this agreement is a logical development of the collaboration between the two companies.
Speaking on the agreement, Yuri Miroshnikov, 1C’s Head of Games and Multimedia Division said; "We consider that many parameters of LIFESTUDIO:HEAD technology exceed the analogues of other similar products. Due to this technology we’re planning to improve quality of our products and at the same time optimize expenses, paying maximum attention to in-game content development".
LIFESTUDIO:HEAD SDK is currently being used in two projects: the development of Gaijin Entertainment’s 3D-action title ‘Bummer’ (Gangsta Ride), which is expected to be released this autumn/fall, and in a new RPG project that will be shortly announced.
