Cipher Movie Soon
8:31 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

VoodooExtreme got word from Rik Heywood of Synaptic Soup that the company will release a gameplay movie of their multiplatform 3D engine tomorrow. This tech video should demo the impressive effects of the Cipher engine as well as the work on their first racing game for it, Crazy Car Championship. Heywood has also given a little more info (as well as screen shots) on what will be shown. Here's an excerpt:

Next up are some shots from Synaptic Soup's upcoming racing game, Crazy Car Championship. Each of the cars is made from over 5,000 polygons and rendered using amazing shader effects, such as the detailed environment mapping and the pulsing animated shielding effect used when the cars are powered up. There is also a taste of some the amazing particle effects you can expect when Crazy Car Championship is done.
Since one of the Cipher engine's main features it's portability, we're hoping to see a Mac version of Crazy Car Championship sometime early next year as well. We'll bring you more info when the movie is release and as the game progresses.
