Trinigyâ??s 3D game engine to power several new titles from German firm

Germany-based publisher and developer Kalypso Media has licensed Trinigy’s latest Vision Engine iteration for several upcoming games.

The first of the named titles that will make use of the newly-licensed product will be The Dark Eye: Demonicon, the latest installment in an RPG series, to be released for Xbox 360 and PC next year.

Previous titles in the series made use of an internally developed Kalypso engine, and the licensing of the Vision Engine marks the first time external middleware has been brought in to the development pipeline.

"Trinigy and the Vision Game Engine gave us a single development platform with a strong feature set capable of achieving our exacting graphic and gameplay goals, optimized performance across a range of platforms and extremely responsive support," said Kalypso MD Stefan Marcinek.

"Just as importantly, the Vision Engine doesn't tie us to a specific workflow – it is so flexible, we can adapt it to our development process with our own internal tools, not matter what platform or genre we are developing for."
