Media Release: Micro =?windows-1252?Q?Fort=E9_cancels_?=

*(Sydney, AUSTRALIA):* - Micro Forté, a leading Australian developer of
MMOs, today announced that it has cancelled development on the “Citizen
Zero” project, with internal development now focused on a top secret
spy-themed MMO.

Steve Wang – Head of Studios for Micro Forté commented, “Although we
were sad to stop working on CZ, we are extremely excited about the
progress of our spy project.”

The top secret project has been in production since mid '06 with a core
development team working out of Micro Forté’s Australian studio.

“We’re not giving too much away at this stage,” commented Micro Forté
Lead Designer, Paul McInnes, “Obviously our new project is a spy-themed
MMO, but it incorporates new game-play elements and technologies that we
are really looking forward to delivering to the public.”

Steve Wang added, “We are at an exciting crossroads where many new
game-play styles and experiences have become possible in virtual world
environments. This is a great opportunity for us to leverage our 7 years
of development in the MMO space to bring the social MMO experience
together with game-play that has been traditionally the domain of single
player games.”

Micro Forté will be making further announcements in the coming months
with a view to showcasing the project toward the end of this year.
Micro Forté is currently taking expressions of interest from
distribution partners and has already begun discussion with some of the
world’s leading publishers.
