PS3 developers now have access to Vicious Cycle's Vicious Engine as the company joins Sony's Tools and Middleware licence programme.

Features in Vicious include point-and-click scripting, integrated physics solution,  AI development, platform conversion tools and a rendering engine.

"By taking advantage of the advanced processors and rendering capabilities of the PlayStation 3, the Vicious Engine can maximize a game's potential," said Eric Peterson, president at Vicious Cycle Software.

"The Vicious Engine allows developers to create stunning and visually rich game content without having to worry about engine specifics."
