Transmission's cricket tie-in powered by NaturalMotion's animation tech

Codemasters and Transmission Games have signed NaturalMotion's morpheme.

The animation technology will be used to power Ashes Cricket 2009 on PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii.

“We have reaped the benefits of using morpheme in our development of Ashes Cricket 2009,” said Tony Parkes, studio head of Transmission Games.

“Our team has been able to efficiently and cost‐effectively produce believable animation in a fraction of the time we would normally expect.”

Christian Staack, Vice President of Sales for North America at NaturalMotion, added: “Codemasters has a strong reputation for publishing world class cricket titles and Transmission Games will no doubt continue the tradition. We are delighted to support such a talented and dedicated studio and are confident that morpheme will help them create the most authentic Ashes experience possible.”
