 NxN Software Inc. announced today that Prolific Publishing, developers of
 DreamWorks' Shrek(TM) for Gameboy Color, Mattel's Hot Wheels(R) CRASH(TM)! and
 Caterpillar Construction Zone(TM), Disney's 102 Dalmatians(TM) and the Return

 solution to support their next generation Gamecube development project, which
 is set to begin immediately.
     Founded in 1987, Prolific Publishing (www.Prolific.com) and its sister
 company Silent Software have developed games for almost every platform and for
 many of the industry's best-known publishers.  Prolific has turned to NxN
 Software's alienbrain to help implement effective team collaboration, control
 development processes and ensure on-time delivery for their new Nintendo
 Gamecube project.  Prolific has purchased 5 seats to manage the pre-production
 phase and will expand that count to 15 seats over the next 6 months.

 environment gets more complex and competitive," stated Russell Mix, CEO of
 Prolific.  "By providing a comprehensive production solution for our project
 NxN's alienbrain will help us eliminate time-consuming errors and deliver the
 highest quality products to our publishers."  Baron R. K. Von Wolfsheild, CTO
 of Prolific added, "Even a normal 1% error rate on file names can mean
 thousands of errors during a project of 20K files.  alienbrain can eliminate
 almost all of this."
     "Prolific is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable game developers
 in the industry," stated NxN CEO, Gregor vom Scheidt.  "The Prolific purchase
 of alienbrain is a vote of confidence that we appreciate.  And it affirms our
 conviction that advanced digital production management solutions are needed to
