Frogster Interactive has secured the worldwide PC-rights for cult games Speedball 2 and The Chaos Engine from The Bitmap Brothers, and plans to re-release both titles with participation of the original development team.

The futuristic sports game series Speedball was first released in 1988 on the Amiga and was an instant triumph. Versions for almost every relevant system and highly successful sequels followed. The series got many awards, amongst others 1989 “Game of the Year“ from The Golden Joysticks and “Best Original Game“ from In-Din Arcade.

Action-shooter The Chaos Engine celebrated a similarly successful première in 1993. The Chaos Engine received numerous awards including the SEGA Award 1994 for “Best Action Game“ and the Power Play Award for “Multi-player Game of the Year“.
