Strategy First and Daydream Software are bringing players of all genres a unique gaming experience with a futuristic twist."Strategy First is delving into the mainstream market with this title," says Steve Wall, V.P. Business Development for Strategy First. "Clusterball is a fast and invigorating game that we are confident many players of all genres will enjoy."
"This deal is one essential part in our co-ordinated world wide launch of the PC game Clusterball", says Anders Gothefors, Senior Marketing and Sales Manager for Daydream Software AB. "This gives players from all over the world the opportunity to play this unique game."

Clusterball, an online fantasy sports game, combines elements of high speed air-racing with true dogfighting and tactical challenges. In a Clusterball match, a player's aim is to collect colored balls from magnetic tracks spread out in venues and tow them through a scoring ring using a fast and versatile aircraft. To interfere with opposing pilots, players can pick up various kinds of tactical equipment - like the Superboost, Ball Snatcher or Tractor Beam.

With amazing 3D graphics and positional sound effects together with authentic physics, a perfect setting is created. Intense matches take place in astonishing landscapes inspired by famous locations around the world.

Clusterball can be enjoyed with up to 8 players from all over the globe through the Internet. There is a world spanning ranking system, based on results from online matches that is always accessible on THE CLUSTERBALL WEBSITE.

Some of the exciting features in Clusterball are:

  • Easy single player training mode to get started
  • 11 detailed venues from around the world
  • A wide range of aggressive and defensive equipment
  • Multiplayer with both "Free For All" and team play
  • Internet play with unparalleled narrowband support
