SCI-FI-LONDON is delighted to announce that JoWooD Productions, one of the world’s leading developers and publishers of entertainment software, today confirms that they have signed up to become the ?official video games partner? for this year?s SCI-FI-LONDON, the UK?s only dedicated SF and Fantastic film festival, 2 ? 6 may 2007.
JoWood Productions have a number of forthcoming PC titles which will form part of the festival line-up, including: Sam and Max, Genesis Rising, Spaceforce ? Rogue Universe, and Dawnspire. In the next few weeks new titles will be announced including a critically acclaimed game coming soon to consoles.
Louis Savy, festival director said
? Each year, we choose one publisher to become part of the festival line up and Jowood?s titles – fit perfectly with our core audience. We are also extremely pleased to have secured this dynamic gaming publisher as our sponsor.?
Richard Grantham UK sales director Jowood Productions said.
?JoWooD are delighted to be involved with such a prestigious event as SCI-FI-LONDON. The month of May used to be a key focal point for the games industry where we would meet journalists, buyers and most importantly generate public and industry awareness for forthcoming products. With the demise of E3, it has become more important to find opportunities or events where we can communicate directly with core audiences and the SCI-FI LONDON film festival presents JoWooD with a fantastic opportunity to promote our key brands.?
As part of the deal, a teaser will be presented before each film at the festival; this will be in the form of an exclusive trailer showcasing all aspects of the games. Genesis Rising, Spaceforce ? Rogue Universe, and Dawnspire will also be featured along side Alienware in a pre-awareness campaign for the festival; this involves a 100,000 leaflet campaign in London at retail outlets and all major forthcoming events. The leaflet will detail a competition where people will have the chance to win an Alienware rig and copies of the games. To enter the competition, they can go directly to the official festival site www.sci-fi-london.com or
