Nikita is moving forward in preparation of their soon coming title "Parkan Iron Strategy" and made a deal with Comcor TV in Russia to distribute it electronically ...

Nikita, leading Russian Entertainment Software Developer, and Broadband Network Operator "Comcor-TV" have signed an agreement for Electronic Distribution among Comcor-TV's subscribers of "Parkan Iron Strategy" game - Nikita's strategic robot simulator. Now all of those who are connected to the Internet through Comcor-TV Network, can download the game directly from that company's server.

Eugene Lomko, Nikita's Director of Sales and Marketing comments: "I think it's a very significant event for the Russian market, which reflects a world-wide trend towards electronic distribution of licensed products. This form of distribution is equally convenient for the participants of the deal and for the net subscribers, who can now download a wonderful game in just a few minutes. We believe that in the near future traditional business-model will be cardinally changed by this new form of distribution."

Comcor-TV is the first Russian telecommunication services provider created on the basis of a megapolis-wide broadband communication grid. Today, Comcor-TV offers its subscribers cable TV and broadband Internet access services as well as a whole range of its own broadband services, including a computer game service.

Nikita was established in 1991 and, according to the "Computer Elite" rating conducted in April 2000, became the best Russian entertainment software maker. Nikita's games are distributed in 27 countries.
