The editors of CMP’s Game Developer magazine has named the Perforce Software Configuration Management (SCM) system the winner of the 2007 Front Line Award for best programming tool. The 2007 award marks the fifth consecutive Front Line honour for Perforce in the magazine’s annual evaluation of the year’s best game-making tools.

Their developers and designers recognise that in addition to source code, Perforce is ideally suited to manage the wide variety of game assets from large binary files and 3D models to sound effects, music and dialogue.
