A board game finally gets its 3D gaming make over.
CodeFire, Inc. announced the acquisition of the intellectual property rights to Wiz-War, a popular board game featuring battling wizards and stolen treasure. The company acquired the rights from Jolly Games.
CodeFire plans to develop a 3D action shooter for game consoles based on the Wiz-War property as well as an online personal computer version of the classic game by the 2003 holiday season.
"CodeFire is always at the lookout for intriguing games like Wiz-War that have the potential to become even more engaging by being transformed into real-time 3D," said Michael Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer of CodeFire. "I am a huge fan of Tom Jolly's work, and I cannot wait to put our team to work on this beloved property."
"I believe CodeFire has the know-how to finally bring Wiz-War to the digital gaming world, and expect to be heavily involved with them as it transitions into this exciting format," said Tom Jolly, the original creator of Wiz-War and the owner of Jolly Games.
