NiCE gets brotherly with the Bitmaps

War and Chaos set to go online

Legendary UK developer the Bitmap Brothers has joined forces with Time of Defiance developer Nicely Crafted Entertainment to "[explore] new genres for MMOG entertainment", according to a news release from the companies today.

More specifically, they're planning to create online versions of recent World War 2 strategy title Frontline Command and Amiga classic Chaos Engine by utilising NiCE's AliceServer technology.

Both companies will be present at next week's ECTS 2003 trade show in London, where hopefully they'll be able to shed some more light on their plans.
