Perforce Software Certifies Nevigo’s Game Design Tool Integration with its Version Management System

Alameda, Calif., December 1, 2011—Perforce Software has certified a new technology integration between Nevigo’s articy:draft, a software tool for game writers, and the Perforce version management system.

Using articy:draft with Perforce, game writers can easily track and manage revisions to all their media assets and their dependencies.

"We are excited to add Nevigo to our list of certified technology partners," said Randy DeFauw, technical marketing manager for Perforce Software. "The game industry is at the forefront of managing extremely complicated software projects and new tools like articy:draft that help manage complexity are critical."
