MONTREAL, Quebec– July 10, 2008– Software publisher Strategy First Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Silverstar Holdings, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSTR), and KDV games, are bringing back the eagerly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed‘Perimeter’, Perimeter II: New Earth.
The story of Perimeter II: New Earth follows the events from the original game. The Exodus, lead by the wise Spirits, have been searching for the New Earth. The Harkback have lost faith in the Spirits, overthrown their rule, and decided to head back for the Old Earth, not believing its death. Both sides took the final step on their way, but the chain has closed and mortal enemies entered the same planet face to face.
"We are excited to be working with KDV Games. We’re confident that Perimeter II will continue to build upon its award- winning tradition of developing great RTS games,” said Strategy First Business Development Manager, Emanuel Wall.
“Perimeter II is a project for intellectual gamers who appreciate a new gaming experience and innovative ideas. In order to make the most out of project potential, we were looking towards a publishing partner with the most experience in the RTS genre. Strategy First meets the case perfectly. We see our collaboration as a great opportunity to introduce fresh original ideas to true fans of the RTS genre in North America,” said Evgeny Novikov, Managing Director at KDV Games:
Ideas of territorial gameplay and landscape modification introduced in the original game are now realized on a new concept&technology level. The VistaGame Engine enhances the dynamics and depth of gameplay, turning the battlefield into an arena for the confrontation of two elements - ground and water.
"Perimeter 2" is a project for fans of the RTS genre. The revolutionary concept of terra-forming, along with new elements and fresh ideas, is sure to provide a unique gaming experience.
