Quazal, a provider of online multiplayer components for PC and console games, and Crave Entertainment, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, announced that they have entered into a long-term agreement for the use of Quazal’s online technologies in Crave Entertainment’s gaming products.
"We’re very happy to be entering into this agreement with Crave Entertainment, with whom we’ve recently worked with on World Championship Poker 2
. This game was, to our knowledge, one of the first released titles to allow cross-platform gaming between PS2 and PSP," said Sylvain Beaudry, President and CEO of Quazal. "Quazal’s robust products, proven track record and solid support were the major factors in this long term agreement. We look forward to the titles we’ll be working on with Crave over the next three years, the first of which will hit shelves later this year."
Quazal’s Rendez-Vous allows for implementation of online gameplay features, letting developers build a lobby and matchmaking system with community features, stats-tracking, and other aspects. With Net-Z, developers and publishers can apply different forms of networking theory, allowing robust online play in a variety of game situations.
