Nevrax Announces the Availability of NeL Technology to the World

Now With Two Commercial License Options

For Immediate Release

Paris, France - January 31, 2005 - Nevrax, developer of the ground-breaking massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) The Saga of Ryzom, announced today new commercial offerings for its open source MMORPG engine NeL. Short for Nevrax Library, NeL is a dynamic toolkit for the development of massively multiplayer online worlds. It provides the base technologies and a set of development methodologies for the creation of both client and server code.

"NeL was developed for The Saga of Ryzom, Nevrax's first MMORPG, and is an open source library of components that can be added to, adapted or extended to meet the specific requirements of the products that are based on it," said David Cohen-Corval, CEO of Nevrax. "The dedicated NeL development team at Nevrax works closely with internal product development to ensure that the solutions provided by NeL are perfectly adapted to the requirements of each product, making every solution completely customized."

After much demand, Nevrax now has made available two commercial license packages of NeL, offering even more to the MMORPG world and giving every developer access to the same tools with a host of options. NeL with Basic Tools Under a Closed License and MMORPG Skeleton with Tools are both royalty-free licenses, able to generate all data from 3dsmax including meshes, indoor and landscape scenes, collisions, visual effects and more. Both also include two weeks of on-site initial setup support with a dedicated team to handle any request, as well as translation services as needed. In addition, the MMORPG Skeleton with Tools option also contains the complete base infrastructure for an MMORPG. At the end of the two-week initial set-up period developers will have a ready-to-work 3D production pipeline as well as access to Nevrax's "sample shard" with everything installed and configured with their custom data.

For pricing and more information on these products visit the NeL web site at www.nevrax.org. Here developers can exchange ideas with their peers, share questions, post their blogs as well as join the NeL IRC chat channel.
