The Game Creators Integrate AGEIA PhysX Technology into DarkBASIC Professional; Integration Lets DarkBASIC Professional Developers Leverage Power of AGEIA PhysX Processor.

MOUNTAIN VIEW & SAN JOSE, Calif. -- AGEIA(TM) Technologies, Inc., the pioneer in hardware-accelerated physics for games, today announced that The Game Creators have integrated AGEIA PhysX(TM) technology into DarkBASIC Professional, the advanced version of their game development tool that allows even non-programmers to create their own games.

DarkBASIC Professional offers the same ease-of-use of DarkBASIC, but also includes advanced features such as lower-level control, a broader range of data types, and a more advanced 3D engine. With the integration of AGEIA PhysX technology into DarkBASIC Professional, developers can easily add dynamic physics-based action to their games. PC gamers whose gaming rigs are equipped with the AGEIA PhysX processor will experience this physics action with heightened intensity and real-time interactivity.

The AGEIA PhysX processor is available in game PCs from Dell, Alienware and Falcon Northwest starting today, and on add-in boards from ASUS and BFG technologies starting in May 2006.

DarkPHYSICS upgrade to DarkBASIC Professional with AGEIA PhysX technology will be available May 15th 2006 priced at just $59.99.

"Our customers have been asking for integrated physics in DarkBASIC, and AGEIA PhysX technology is simply the best available. DarkBASIC Professional users will have access to all the great features offered by AGEIA PhysX, from tumbling rigid bodies to dynamically flowing fluids. We've made the process of programming these complex features a cinch!" said Richard Vanner, development manager at The Game Creators. "In the same way that DarkBASIC Professional leverages the latest visual effects of today's graphics cards, AGEIA PhysX technology gives developers access to the powerful physics capabilities of the AGEIA PhysX processor."

"With AGEIA PhysX technology integrated into DarkBASIC Professional, there's never been an easier way to add exciting physics action to your games," said Kathy Schoback, vice president of content acquisition at AGEIA. "With the hardware acceleration of the AGEIA PhysX processor, DarkBASIC Professional users can deliver physics-enhanced game action that's superior to even the most expensive software-only physics solutions."
