Atari, DreamWorks and Intel are to collaborate on the development and marketing of an interactive game which they claim will marry epic animated adventure with the latest innovation in PC technology.
The companies will produce the game based on DreamWorks' animated action adventure film, Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas.
"Unique relationships such as this provide us with new ways to enhance the game-playing experience," said Bruno Bonnell, chairman and chief executive at Atari.
"By forging a bond with two powerful companies in different industries, we are bringing innovation to this project on both the business and creative levels, testing yet another new model for game development."
The partners said that, unlike most previous PC games based on movies, the epic is being created in collaboration with one of the film's directors, Patrick Gilmore.
"Diving back into game production after more than three years, it's amazing to me how much the technology has kept up," said Gilmore.
The game is being developed to take full advantage of the Intel Pentium 4 processor with hyper-threading technology.
Intel claimed that consumers who play the game on a PC enabled with the technology will experience higher quality character models, more detailed animation and more dynamic game environments.
The game will be released in the UK before Christmas.
