Digital Jesters Supports AGEIA
physX Technology in Bet on Soldier: Blood Sport, Dogtag and Other New
Titles

Publisher-wide agreement with AGEIA ensures full-spectrum physics action in
all of Digital Jesters’ next-generation game titles

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.– August 16, 2005 – At GC 2005, AGEIA™ Technologies,
Inc., the pioneer in hardware-accelerated physics for games, today announced
that Digital Jesters has signed a publisher-wide agreement with AGEIA to license
the AGEIA physX™ SDK and utilize the AGEIA physX™ processor for its
next-generation games. The first of these is Bet on Soldier: Blood Sport, a
futuristic first-person shooter with a twist—the combatants kill for cash in a
televised reality-show-from-hell, and players can wager in-game money on whether
they can defeat an opponent in a certain time period.

Digital Jesters developer Kylotonn used the AGEIA physX SDK for all the
physics-based content in Bet on Soldier: Blood Sport. In addition, Kylotonn
included advanced features specifically designed for hardware acceleration by
AGEIA’s physX processor, which will be available on PC add-in boards by late
2005. Current and future Digital Jesters titles will also support the AGEIA
physX processor, including Dogtag.

“Our philosophy is simple at Digital Jesters—we want to publish the best games
available, and AGEIA is helping us fulfill that goal with the unrivalled physics
capabilities of AGEIA physX technology,” said Leo Zullo, marketing director and
cofounder of Digital Jesters. “With several major releases right around the
corner, we’re anticipating an enthusiastic response to the physics capabilities
in these new titles.”

Bet on Soldier: Blood Sport is set for release in the U.K. on September 9th
2005, and in the U.S. on September 12th 2005. Dogtag is planned for release in
May 2006.

“Digital Jesters is a leading games publisher in the UK and has a solid strategy
for expanding internationally,” said Andy Keane, vice president of marketing at
AGEIA. “Their developers are first-rate and their commitment to new technology
is unmatched, which makes Digital Jesters and AGEIA a great team for advancing
the level of realism and excitement in tomorrow’s game titles.”
