MILIA 2002 Announces the Winners of the 3rd Game Developer Village

(January 22, 2002)
Reed Midem Organisation, organizer of MILIA, the World's Interactive Content Marketplace for interactive entertainment, broadband Internet, wireless media and interactive television, which will take place in Cannes, France February 4-8, 2002, announced the 30 winning projects of The Game Developer Village, a unique area dedicated to bringing new sources of creativity to MILIA. Each year these unpublished developers are given the opportunity, free of charge, to demonstrate their work and expertise in front of thousands of companies and potential commercial partner organizations, looking to discover untapped creative talent.

Now in its third year, The Game Developer Village backed by AMD, Biovirtuals, Discreet and MathEngine, and media partners Joystick, Edge, PC Games and Alliance Numericq, received an unprecedented number of entries for 2002. An astounding 83 projects from 21 countries competed this year -- an increase of 26% compared to last year. Entries were received from countries around the globe including Germany, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Spain, Finland, France, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, United Kingdom, Russia, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the USA.

A jury of international experts, headed by Mike Gamble from MathEngine, as president, headed to London in January in order to select the 30 winning projects. Mr. Gamble said, "Taking part in the MILIA Game Developer Village jury was an especially rewarding experience this year. Not only was the overall standard of entry higher than in previous years, but it was also nice to see the entrants move away from the over-reliance on existing genres (first-person shooter and real-time strategy games) that we have seen previously. It was also encouraging that a number of the entrants were on new platforms...consoles and online."

This year NEC Computers International and IMCN join MILIA as official technical partners for the Game Developer Village.
