The Bitmap Brothers and award nominated online gurus Nicely Crafted Entertainment (NiCE) have today announced their intention to work together on a number of exciting new products sharing both IP and technology. Through their development joint venture, NiCE and The Bitmap Brothers are exploring new genres for MMOG entertainment as well as creating online versions of existing titles including Chaos Engine and Frontline Command.

Mike Montgomery, Managing Director of The Bitmap Brothers said "This is an exciting time for us and we're looking forward to this new venture hugely, Toby Simpson and his team are a great bunch and between us we aim to create some stunning titles. The quality of the AliceServer technology is incredibly impressive and I am looking forward to applying some of Bitmap's creative magic to a new genre."

Toby Simpson, Managing Director of NiCE said, "I grew up with The Bitmap Brothers titles on the Amiga, and having known Mike Montgomery for all these years it is enormously exciting to be working on these joint projects. Our revolutionary scalable AliceServer technology married with The Bitmap Brothers' product designs and development heritage will allow us to create MMOG titles that we'd all only previously dreamt of."

Both companies will be present at the inaugural London Games Market at the forthcoming ECTS event to talk to publishers.
