Tools makers brings Linux-backed mobile platform onboard for its game engine

Havok has added open source software Tizen to its list of free-to-ship platforms for Project Anarchy, Havok’s free C++ mobile game engine.

Havok is optimising the full range of Project Anarchy technology for Tizen including Havok Vision Engine, Havok Physics, Havok Animation Studio and Havok AI.

The Tizen platform, which is backed by the Linux Foundation and other open source bodies, is an open source, standards-based operating system supported by mobile operators and hardware manufacturers for devices, including smartphones, tablets, netbooks and connected devices, such as smart TVs.

“Tizen is an exciting and versatile new platform for mobile and connected devices,” said David Coghlan, managing director at Havok.

“We’re thrilled to be on the ground floor with a highly robust game engine that will enable mobile developers to push the technology boundaries of Tizen to deliver highly compelling gameplay.”

Christopher Croteau, Tizen Association board member and managing director of Intel’s System Software Division, added: “The Tizen ecosystem welcomes Havok’s Project Anarchy support for Tizen. Project Anarchy will provide an end-to-end mobile 3D game production engine for game developers targeting Tizen mobile devices.”

Havok will be giving live demonstrations of its tech at the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco, May 22nd to 24th, 2013.

The Tizen-optimised build of Project Anarchy will be available for developers targeting the Tizen operating system in the third quarter of 2013.
