Press release

Game Developer Fuzzyeyes Focuses on NXN alienbrain Studio's Asset Management
Australian studio implements industry-leading asset management system for artists and programmers

London, 15. October 2003. Fuzzyeyes Studio, Queensland-based developer of PC games, has licensed NXN alienbrain Studio, the industry-leading asset management solution from NXN Software to securely version, track and store all the digital assets created over the course of their upcoming game: ?Project Hotdog?. By installing the software, the team intends to reduce the administrative overhead and enable the team to focus more on the development of high-quality, easy-to-play entertainment.

?NXN alienbrain Studio provides exactly the asset management capability we require for our complex projects and helps us centralize both art and development assets in a single location?, said Wesley Clarke, Technology Director at Fuzzyeyes Studio. ?The system impressed us with its ease of use: getting the software up and running takes a minimal amount of time and effort, and using the software is equally easy. This means we can spend more time on actual development.?

?I am delighted that Fuzzyeyes Studio has joined our growing customer base in Australia?, commented Steve Tyson, VP Sales UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand at NXN Software. ?Australia's game development community is currently attracting first-class projects and we look forward to delivering more seats of our powerful asset management system to help complete these projects on time and within budget.?

Before installing NXN alienbrain Studio, the team leads at Fuzzyeyes organized and tracked the digital assets created by their teams manually. With NXN alienbrain Studio in place, all code and art files produced for ?Project Hotdog? are now tracked automatically on a central server. Thumbnails, previews and powerful search functionality enable every team member to find the right file fast, whereas the integrated reporting functionality provides team leads with an instant overview of the project's progress.
NXN alienbrain Studio is the only asset management system to support programmers and artist within the same framework. Unlike traditional asset management systems that focus primarily on archiving completed assets, NXN alienbrain Studio manages all files of a project from concept to completion.
