Emergent Adds Evolver to Gamebryo Lightspeed

Emergent Game Technologies has added support for Evolver’s web-based 3D character and modeling technology to its Gambryo Lightspeed video game development system.

Evolver’s web-based application offers professionals and consumers an intuitive tool to design and customize unique 3D models in a matter of minutes. Drawing from an expansive collection of facial and body characteristics available on the Evolver website, or a photograph, users can create an avatar that is animation ready and fully exportable.

Developed by Emergent, LightSpeed is a multiplatform game engine with an extensive set of features including rapid prototyping, rapid iteration and real-time updates.

‘Our partnership with Emergent provides LightSpeed developers with an easy way to integrate custom 3D characters into their latest projects at a fraction of the production time, effort and costs of traditional modeling and rigging methods,’ said Evolver CEO, Brian Nilles.

‘The integration of Evolver models into the Gamebryo LightSpeed platform will allow developers to produce visually stunning results more quickly, easily and cost effectively,’ said Katie Morgan, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Emergent Game Technologies.
