Soft Gear has updated its Graphyte 2.2 3D game engine to support Android OS. Before this, the development platform was supported on Apple iOS and Windows only. This move will provide game developers an avenue to expand their titles to include gamers who are exclusively on the Android OS.
According to Soft Gear, the company sees the need to update its 3D game development platform as devices get more powerful such that they are able to operate full 3D applications. Its Graphyte engine is optimized for multi-core processors, and enables "model rendering and animation playback as well as shader management functions, also offering high-speed processing for physics simulation." Graphyte has been developed from ground up to support multiple platforms such that it cuts down development time for developers, especially porting games over for such support.
