Developer-centric PR agency grabs first client

New developer-focused PR service Peppermint P has signed up its first new client, now representing DS racing studio Firebrand and its Octane in-house proprietary technology.

Currently a DS-specialised engine, Octane comes packed with high-end features such as game sharing, multi-cart play and Wi-Fi support, and is being used on three major titles planned for 2008.

Firebrand CEO Mark Greenshields said: “There isn’t a DS game engine that runs as smoothly as Octane, and we’re proud that we pack in so much detail and still maintain a 60hz frame rate. This is why I’m confident that our technology positions us as the best handheld racing game developer in the world.”
