CYBERWORLD BUILDER Selected as an Exclusive Pick on CNET Download.com
Unique New Mixed-Media Authoring Solution to be Showcased on the Internet's
Premiere Software Download Site

TORONTO, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- CYBERWORLD(R) International Corporation, a
new media enterprise committed to bridging the gap between 2D and 3D media
on the Internet, today announced that its on-line beta program for
CYBERWORLD BUILDER(R) will be featured as an Exclusive Pick on CNET
Download.com, and the >>NBC<< and CNET Internet portal Snap.com, beginning
March 5, 1999.

CYBERWORLD BUILDER, the first in a series of CYBERWORLD design tools for
on-line, interactive content creation, allows professional web site
designers, artists, and digital content creators to build mixed-media
environments for e-commerce, e-merchandising, on-line communities, company
Intranets, and much more. Visitors to CYBERWORLD spaces can experience a
variety of media, including digital pictures, video, audio, Java, VRML, and
much more.

CYBERWORLD's unique QBORG(TM) system architecture serves as a platform for
building and incorporating visual and interactive elements into web
environments. With QBORG, developers and artists can simply layer and paint
floors, ceilings, walls, backgrounds, sounds, and 2D or 3D graphics to
design compelling and immersive digital worlds.

`The Cyberworld Builder represents a major step toward a much-needed new
paradigm of on-line navigation -- a jump from the flat page to
multi-dimensional environments, efficient in both bandwidth and performance
on a wide range of systems,` says Todd Volz, producer for PC Multimedia &
Design at CNET Download.com. `The innovative Cyberworld Builder provides
accessible tools for the quick creation of media-rich 3D worlds, suitable
for both commercial and individual on-line applications.` Volz continues,
`CNET Download.com is proud to announce the premiere of Cyberworld Builder,
a worthy addition to its extensive library of multimedia, design, and
Internet titles.`

`We are extremely pleased to be selected for CNET's premiere Download.com
web site,` says Sharleen Sy, vice president of marketing at CYBERWORLD
International. `CNET visitors are the most technologically savvy in the
industry. Its audience is constantly in search of new ways to be more
creative and productive, making the CYBERWORLD BUILDER the ideal tool for
their needs,` explains Sy. `We anticipate that once the news of the
CYBERWORLD BUILDER beta spreads within the on-line and web development
community, the web as we know it will be transformed into a feature-rich
multimedia experience unlike any other.`

About the CYBERWORLD On-Line Beta Program

To enrich the Internet, and foster a growing community of interactive
experiences, the CYBERWORLD BUILDER on-line beta program gives digital
content creators and web site designers running Microsoft Windows 95, 98,
or NT the opportunity to experience CYBERWORLD >>technology<< firsthand.

mixed-media environments on the web. It integrates sound, photos, video,
web pages, and interactivity in a real-world visual multimedia interface.
