OBE Needs OS X Developers for Cipher Engine
6:51 AM | Zack Lipowski | Comment on this story

Recently, Out of the Box Entertainment posted a message on their website asking for OS X developers within the Mac community to help port their Cypher Engine to the Mac. Here's the message:

As the development for the Cipher Engine grows, OBE realizes the importance of great support for our great engine. Cipher is currently only for the PC, however, OBE has plans to port this engine to Mac OS X. Previous work has been done when Cipher was part of Synaptic Soup, thus the developer of the Mac version will take on from there.

For this development though, we are asking the OS X community to come out and help join this development. We need to make this engine work well on OS X and any additional help is greatly appreciated as our own projects continue to progress. Additionally, the Cipher Community has expressed a great deal of interest in the development of Blender and Maya tools for Cipher OS X. OBE will coordinate the creation of these tools and will release the tools to the community.

Developers that are interested in participating in the port of the engine and/or the tools should direct themselves onto the forum sign up and e-mail or message us at obe@outoftheboxent.com.

The Cypher Engine, as described by OBE, "is a 3D game engine that allows programmers to create state of the art games using a simple but powerful SDK. Cipher includes a range of powerful data driven tools to help improve artist workflow and time to market."

OS X developers that have an interest in the Cypher Engine can reach OBE's forums with the provided link.
