New Cross-Platform Engine Announced
11:36 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
FGN Online has just posted a characteristically short blurb about Cipher, a cross-platform engine in development by the team that made the PC-only title Evolva. While no games using this engine were announced, this is yet another in an increasingly large list of game engines that are cross-compatible between Mac, PC and select consoles. Here is an excerpt from the report on FGN:
Multi: It might not be a game, but Synaptic Soup, formed from the Evolva team and ex-Bullfrog members, has revealed the first of itís ongoing projects, Cipher. Now we just have to sit back and see if developers take advantage of this engine and its cross-platform features.
