Irish developer to use Instinct Studio middleware

Irish game developer Dark Water is to use its sister company’s Instinct Studio middleware for its first title, an online-only combat game called Dogfighter.

The game will mix a classic multiplayer game with web community features, tracking statistics, rankings and clans. Initially the title will be subscription-free, but an additional deluxe edition will release later in 2008.

“We are delighted to be working with Dark Water Studios,” said Dermot Gallagher, CTO of Instinct Technology.

“Dogfighter is a great fit for Instinct Studio right now considering the forthcoming release of our landscape and outdoor environment technologies. We’re also very excited about Dark Water’s plans for the online community – it’s a great idea, in effect extending the idea of social networking into the gaming world.”
