[i]AGEIA Technologies, Inc[/i], a leader in developing hardware-accelerated physics, announced today Developer-publisher [i]GungHo Online Entertainment[/i] will be integrating AGEIA PhysX technologies for its titles, including the upcoming Rondo Projects.
What this does is make simulation capabilities of AGEIA NovodeX physics software a cost-saving alternative compared to expensive motion-capture and labor-intensive 3D animation while still being able to make online worlds that offer virtually unlimited interactivity.
?AGEIA?s PhysX technologies allow us to replace simple iterations of pre-defined movements and reactions created with animation with physically-enabled moving, interactive worlds,? said Seiichi Hori, CTO of GungHo Online Entertainment. ?With NovodeX, we keep our costs down, improve our quality, and ultimately deliver a better experience to our online communities than ever before.?
Andy Keane, vice-president of marketing at AGEIA Technologies had this to say about GungHo, ?GungHo was one of the first game companies to anticipate and capitalize on the broadband boom in Japan, and the strength of their content has earned them a dominant position in this market, GungHo?s adoption of AGEIA PhysX technologies gives them powerful new tools for maintaining their leadership and expanding the possibilities of online gaming.?
