Morpheme animation middleware to be used in upcoming title El Shaddai

Ignition Entertainment’s Japanese studio has licensed NaturalMotion's morpheme animation middleware for their recently announced title El Shaddai.

“We are delighted that Ignition Entertainment have chosen morpheme as we are fully aware of their commitment to creating the most believable animation possible for El Shaddai”, said Christian Staack, NaturalMotion VP of sales.

“We look forward to supporting their project throughout its development and eagerly await the game’s debut at E3 in June.”

Ignition Entertainment CEO Vijay Chadha said that the firm had considered a number of options before choosing their animation tools.

"We are convinced that morpheme will allow our animators to deliver the high quality of performance that this project demands; the evidence of this can be seen at this year's E3".
