SAN FRANCISCO, CA - October 26, 2007 - NaturalMotion today released new Backbreaker screenshots featuring the line of scrimmage, close-ups and unique camera angles of the quarterback making a pass. Premiering on next-generation consoles in 2008, Backbreaker incorporates NaturalMotion's motion synthesis engine, euphoria.
NaturalMotion Ltd. is the first company to create 3D character animation software based on Dynamic Motion Synthesis (DMS), a technology that utilizes adaptive behaviors and artificial intelligence to simulate the human-nervous system. Based on Oxford University research, NaturalMotion's euphoria synthesizes 3D character animation in real time on Playstation [span style="font-size:7pt"]®[/span] 3, Xbox 360 [span style="font-size:7pt"]®[/span] and PC, thus creating unique game moments and previously unachievable interactivity. It will debut in 2008 in Rockstar's hotly awaited Grand Theft Auto IV and LucasArts' ground-breaking Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. In addition to licensing its technology, NaturalMotion is developing Backbreaker, an American football title for release in 2008.
