Tech aims to 'liberate' developers to freely explore gameplay ideas on iOS, Android and Tizen

Havok has launched its free 3D mobile game engine Project Anarchy.

The end-to-end game development platform enables developers to deploy their titles for free on iOS, Android and Tizen platforms.

Havok says there are no commercial restrictions on company size or revenue.

Project Anarchy includes Havok’s Vision Engine, with access to its other tools such as Physics, Animation and AI, and also features a C++ architecture, a flexible asset management system, Lua debugging and customisable game samples and tutorials.

A special online hub has also been created for developers to participate in Q&As, forum discussions and community support.

The site will also feature an “extensive” library of resources which will include documentation, training courseware, video tutorials and upgrades to the development platform.

Havok also said that it would soon be adding x86 Android support in the next few weeks.

“Project Anarchy liberates game developers to freely explore gameplay ideas on mobile platforms using the same award-winning tools that console and PC developers have used for years,” said Havok head of developer relations Ross O’Dwyer.

“This complete set of tools lends powerful graphics, physics and animation capabilities to mobile game development teams for free regardless of team and project size.”
