The Global Network in Action
A fine example of the global network comes from our Canadian neighbors. Ubi Soft will be presenting the pilot for the animated series " Rayman " at Milia on 2/9/99. Rayman is a hero of console and computer games and educational games and "is off again on new, and very animated, adventures!" Ubi Soft develops this product with French design teams, Canadian production teams and American partners to create a multicultural cartoon for the world market. The group relied on outside sources for help in achieving "linear" quality screen-writing equivalent to that found in the game-design of its computer and console products. The new stories, excellent design, variety of characters and places, and their fine modeling have already gone into the interactive follow-ups to Rayman.
