Mamba Games announced that it has acquired the European, Australian, and Eastern European publishing rights for Making History II: The War of the World
, a sequel to Muzzy Lane Software's World War II-based serious game application.
British economic historian Niall Ferguson lends his expertise in the field toward the development of the sequel. A significant portion of Making History II
's gameplay will focus on the global economic climate during World War II.

presents a more complete model of the driving forces behind WWII."
The original Making History
title was honored
by Technology & Learning's 2006 Awards of Excellence, and has been used in classrooms at several high schools and colleges in the United States.
Making History II
