Fox Interactive game to deal with Monolith

Gamemaker to develop products based on pix

Fox Interactive, the vidgame arm of News Corp., has inked an exclusive long-term deal with Monolith Prods.

As part of the deal, Fox Interactive will publish and distribute two original upcoming Monolith titles: “Sanity” and “No One Lives Forever.”

Monolith, a Kirkland, Wash.-based gamemaker, will also develop games based on Fox properties and licenses for the PC and upcoming PlayStation II gaming console, utilizing its proprietary Lith Tech 3D Engine. Although details of which Fox properties it will adapt were not available, the division said it would likely be its more action-oriented pics.

Already in the game

Fox Interactive has already created vidgame titles based on Fox franchises including The “X-Files,” the “Die Hard” trilogy, “Aliens vs. Predator,” “The Simpsons” and its Fox Sports brand.

“We are excited to be partnering with Monolith as they are one of the most sought-after companies in the game-development community,” said Eric Hammond, veep of development at Fox Interactive. “They are a group of talented designers who are matched with a leading proprietary technology. That’s a winning combination in this business.”

Monolith has previously released the popular “Shogo: Mobile Armor Division,” “Rage of Mages” and “Blood 2: The Chosen.” It has a distribution agreement with Interplay through November.
