Quazal, makers of the award-winning Net-Z, Rendez-Vous and Spark! online multiplayer middleware today announced that they have been accepted into Nintendo’s 3rd Party Tools Program for the Wii console, and are now shipping their in-game online technology, Net-Z, to authorized Wii developers.
With an established and award-winning product refined over the last ten years, Net-Z for Wii allows developers to rapidly enable online play for their titles using either an object-based network implementation in peer-to-peer or client-server topologies, or the SyncSim implementation for deterministic networked simulations.
“We’ve had a lot of interest in the notion of online gaming for the Wii from a number of developers and publishers over the last year,” said Martin Lavoie, CTO at Quazal. “It’s great to now be able to offer our technology and expertise to the Wii development community as a whole, and we hope that this will promote more online development for the platform.”
“We’re really pleased to join the 3rd Party Tools Program for the Wii, and think that gamers will be excited about the first slate of games using our technology on the platform,” stated Mike Drummelsmith, Developer Relations Manager of Quazal.
Quazal’s Net-Z technology is available for immediate evaluation and licensing to all approved Wii developers. To learn more about Quazal’s technology and service offerings, please visit http://www.quazal.com, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
