    DO YOU BASKET BRAWL?

    Purmerend, The Netherlands, October 07, 2005 - Red Hot Shots, Dive Tackling, Wall Running, Dragon Punches, over-the-top mid-air volleys - all chainable tricks in the upcoming title: HoopWorld. Streamline Studios, a global leader in creative and engineering outsource services for the video games industry, is proud to reveal that it is currently developing its first Xbox Live ArcadeĀ® title for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. HoopWorld is a three-on-three multiplayer trick game that rewards gamers for playing competitively together. Aubrey Hesselgren, Lead Designer at the studio said "HoopWorld is about personal expression through movement, and also kicking a flaming basket ball straight at your friend's face. Obviously." HoopWorld brings back the feeling of the arcade with heated multiplayer competition in the living room. "HoopWorld was built with the drunken button-masher and skilled player in mind!" enthused Hector Fernandez, Chief Creative officer of Streamline Studios. "It's a fun and easy to pick-up game that rewards players in a bite sized game snack."


    "HoopWorld is the next step for our studio," stated Harpp Seble, CFO of Streamline Studios. "We're known worldwide for our expanding top-notch support services. With HoopWorld we're able to showcase a complete end-to-end solution that benefits our partners greatly." HoopWorld features a multi-ethnic and diverse cast of characters, unique animation system, frantic game play, and the promise of an expanding universe. "Thanks to Xbox 360 Live Arcade's online focus, we're able to provide an ever-evolving game that will expand over years to come," said Alexander L. Fernandez CEO of Streamline Studios. "Arcade is an amazing opportunity that Microsoft has created, and we're happy to be a part of this unique concept that will no doubt usher in a new era in video games."
