Budapest, Hungary– April 27, 2009– Game developer Nemesys Team Studio is proud to announce an update to their warm welcomed fence-off game Fortix available though Steam.

The specific changes include:

• a Retry button added to the in-game popup

• WASD keyboard controls

• Hungarian version available

• Russian version available

• Friends leaderboard available

The updates will be applied automatically once the Steam client is restarted.
