6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Funcom has announced On the Edge of the World, an online free-to-play sports game. A prototype is planned for release on Mac and PC by December 31, 2010. The title, which will promote snow boarding and other Norwegian winter sports, will in part be funded by a $260,000 grant from Norway's Norsk Filminstitutt.
At launch, snowboarding will be the title's main focus, although Funcom and the Norsk Filminstitutt hope the game will be heavily modular, allowing a variety of sporting events to be eventually represented.Read more at the page below.

According to a Norwegian-language press release on the Norsk Filminstitutt's official site, a prototype for the PC and Mac game is expected by December 31, 2010. The game's total development cost is estimated at NOK 6.127 million (US$1.059 million), meaning the grant comprises nearly a quarter of its planned budget.
The Norsk Filminstitutt primarily deals with motion picture productions. A division of Norway's Ministry of Cultural Affairs, it aims to "preserve, support and distribute Norwegian and foreign films." Although On the Edge of the World is a game, it is intended to have some level of cross-media interactivity with television, film, and the sports it will promote.
