Animation tech to be used in Robomondo's Tony Hawk: Ride

Activision has licensed NaturalMotion's Morpheme for Tony Hawk: Ride.

The animation middleware will be used on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, developed by Chicago-based Robomodo, and the Wii version, developed by Monkey Buzz.

“Tony Hawk: RIDE’s groundbreaking skateboard controller offers gamers a uniquely realistic experience,” said Christian Staack, vice president of sales for North America at NaturalMotion.

“Morpheme will allow Robomodo to match that standard of realism in their character animations,recreating the exhilarating thrills and painful spills of real skateboarding to the high degree of accuracy required for such an innovative game.”
