Expo Floor Zone 5

GamaNetwork Booth

 
 

Gama Network was showing off their new name and new look. It's still unclear what's Gamasutra and what's Game Developer Magazine, but whatever makes 'em happy. . .


Gamespy Industries

www.gamespy.com

 

Gamespy once again had "Kornelia" on hand to crush the egos of anyone foolhardy enough to take her on at Quake. Free T-shirt to anyone who killed her, but I don't think they actually brought any.


LIPSinc

www.LIPSinc.com

 

LipSync pushed their face-modeling software, adding 3D photo-modeling of human faces. They were taking photos of passersby, building a 3D "head" of 'em, and letting 'em take their faces with them on floppy.


Intrinsic Graphics, Inc.

You saw it here first, a genuine XBox!

Okay, it's just the development box, but Intrinsic is working on cross-platform graphical solutions for all those high-end game boxes coming out. They've also got a solution for debugging high-end graphics using a PS2 as the debug-box, thus saving you the $$$ that you'd normally spend on a high-end graphics card for your debug machine.


Purple Drop Inc.

www.purpledrop.com

 

Literalizing their name, Purple Drop surrounded their booth with gigantic purple drops. They are a content creator for 3D games. They're best known for creating 3D models, but they're also qualified PS2 developers.


Control Zone Interactive Inc.

NxN Software AG

www.nxn-software.com

 

NxN was on-hand to demo their high-end asset-management software for the game industry, Alienbrain.


Activeworlds.com

Macrovision Corporation

www.macrovision.com

 

Macrovision, top provider of copy-protection software, was on hand. They have recently extended their model to downloads and games in what they call "cradle to grave protection". They gave numerous examples of hacked beta games that could've been stopped via their technology.


Sun Microsystems, Inc.

www.sun.com

 

Sun was all about Java at the GDC. They were evangelizing Java at every turn, and their sub-booths were showing off interesting Java technologies. Here is Plazmic, showing off a tiny (10k) multimedia client for cell-phones that'll allow you to download robust content without the overhead of a browser.



EA was also present in the Sun booth, showing off their existing online games built with Java, like this Monopoly game running in a browser.
