Firms' engine and physics products to be integrated

Middleware firms Trinigy and Havok this morning revealed the have entered into a strategic partnership that will integrate their products.

For the first time Havok's Physics tool will be integrated with a game engine - Trinigy's Vision engine.

The move has come about to 'advance workflow efficiencies' for their clients, the two said.

Trinigy explained that preliminary talks at this year’s GDC lead Havok to partake on an extensive evaluation of the Vision Engine.

“At Trinigy, our goal has always been to empower game developers with more creative and technological freedom,” said Dag Frommhold, managing partner at Trinigy.

“Entering into a partnership with a world-class company and brand like Havok is a wonderful endorsement of our technology and another step toward the achievement of our goal.”

Kurt Pakendorf, vice president at Havok.: “After seeing the power and extensibility of the Vision Engine, we are confident that an integration with Havok Physics can provide game developers with a superior game authoring environment that delivers best-of-breed physics.

“We look forward to furthering our relationship by empowering game developers of all sizes with new options for turning their creative visions into technological realities.”

Havok and Trinigy will explain more about their partnership in an interview with Develop to be published later this week.
