WALTHAM, Mass., August 4, 2015 – Assembla, the online collaboration leader that serves over 1 million users worldwide, announced today a special promotion for game developers to access Portfolio Perforce Team Edition, a hosted service featuring Perforce's premier versioning engine integrated with powerful collaboration tools built by Assembla.


Through the month of August 2015, game developers can access 30-day no-obligation free trials of the service, which supports up to 50 users, unlimited repos, and unlimited files of any size or type - perfect for handling 3D art, audio documents, and large binary files for distributed teams.


"Gaming studios contacted us for a solution that makes Perforce accessible on demand in a high availability configuration,” said Ajit Umrani, President of Assembla. “We developed the Portfolio Perforce Team Edition to enable gaming studios to focus on collaborating to make games that players love and fear. They can leave the Perforce administration to us.”


With Portfolio Perforce Team Edition On Demand, game developers’ code and files have unmatched security with triple-redundant replication. With 99.9% uptime, development teams can access code and files 24/7. Developers can get started with a Perforce depot in less than 60 seconds. Users can browse, review, and share code instantly with Assembla's web-based Code Browser. A syntax highlighted changeset browser featuring inline code commenting makes it easy to see what has changed.


"We were looking for a Perforce solution that would work both in office while granting access to the outside (work from home) contractors we work with on design and gaming projects," said Kevin Nakane, IT manager at Section Studios, a video game design and development company that just released Dead Realm, a multiplayer action game with beautiful, immersive environments. "Assembla has provided our company a fast, efficient, and easy-to-use storage and Perforce repository solution. Assembla's reasonable pricing, which also includes cloud storage and Amazon S3 backups, made the decision a no-brainer for us."


As part of the promotion, Assembla is offering game developers who sign up in August an extended no-credit-card 30-day trial and a chance to win an Amazon gift card.
