Davilex Games announces the development of Miami Vice
Miami Vice was one of the most popular TV series of the 80's taking millions of viewers on under-cover missions through the streets of Miami with characters like the cool Sonny Crockett, his trustworthy partner Ricardo Tubbs and the demanding Lieutenant Martin Castillo. The Miami street scene, the atmosphere of the series and the thrilling adventures of the detectives give an ultimate setting for sensational gameplay. Miami Vice has won two Emmy Awards, two Golden Globes, and is in continuous TV syndication throughout the world. The series has never lost its attraction to viewers young and old. Soon, fans around the world can actively immerse themselves into the world of Miami Vice and play recognizable scenes.

Davilex is committed to making Miami Vice a triple A quality title and has contracted none other than UK studio Atomic Planet Entertainment to develop the game. Atomic Planet Entertainment is a renowned studio, having developed a number of blockbuster titles for publishers such as Capcom, Codemasters, Infogrames and SCEE.

"We are really excited to be working on Miami Vice and with Davilex" says APE Development Director, Jason Falcus. "Davilex have acquired a fantastic license, and share our vision of creating a top quality game, which does it justice. We are very pleased to be working with them on what we hope will be a long term development partnership."

Miami Vice will be a 3rd person operated game with free roaming and numerous encounters and missions. The player can embark on dangerous raids and fast-moving gunfights in a bid to bring justice to nightclubs and warehouses of Miami. A gripping storyline featuring detective work, conspiracies and corruption will be experienced as the player strives to destroy Calderon's narcotics empire.

"We are thrilled to have acquired the Miami Vice license and to have signed a solid development partner like Atomic Planet Entertainment" says CEO, Rogier Avis. "Making a game based on Miami Vice has been talked about a lot and I am proud Davilex will be publishing this highly anticipated title."

Miami Vice is licensed by Universal Studios Consumer Products Group (USCPG), which is responsible for global licensing and retail strategies as well as building brand recognition. USCPG is a unit of Universal Pictures, a division of Vivendi UNIVERSAL Entertainment (VUE) (www.universalstudios.com), the U.S.-based film, television and recreation entity of Vivendi Universal, a global media and communications company.
