RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

International Athletics Screenshots



Ghostlight are on their marks and set to explode out of the starting blocks with the release of International Athletics™ on the Nintendo DS™ and Sony PlayStation® Portable in August, 2008.

In an announcement that is sure to set hearts racing and adrenaline pumping, Ghostlight has confirmed that development duties will be handled by The Code Monkeys. Adrian Hirst, Development Director at Code Monkeys says; “Our goal is to create a highly realistic athletics simulator whilst maintaining a compelling pick up and play game style”

Central to the appeal of International Athletics will be the immense variety of the ten gut-busting events and the innate need of man to compete and win against his fellow man. As a single player game International Athletics will be challenging and rewarding but once taken to the multiplayer level things will really get serious with online leaderboards set to determine who the greatest virtual athlete in the world is. Both formats feature a multiplayer mode with up to 4 players going head to head.

Career development is certainly not overlooked. Players will be rewarded for winning events in a compelling medal chase, unlocking famous stadiums and bonus events. Full character customisation will allow players to recreate their sporting heroes with mind blowing accuracy, selecting facial features, skin type and body stature.

Ghostlight’s Marketing Executive, Adrian Clews comments “Athletics is a truly global sport and is currently enjoying a massive surge in popularity in the build up to the 2008 Olympics™ in Beijing. This has provided the perfect platform to launch International Athletics and forms a strong foundation for a new leading athletics franchise.”

Sam Collins, Sales Manager of Ghostlight stated “International Athletics is an outstanding title with huge mass market appeal and further bolsters Ghostlight’s expanding portfolio of high calibre titles for 2008. We are pleased to be able to announce the release of International Athletics on multi-formats in all PAL territories, reinforcing Ghostlight’s position as a major publisher in the global games market.”
