French firm Cyanide has been toasting its 2007 successes, with the company revealing that the studios at its HQ and new Montreal base continue to grow – with the latter specifically working on a new 3D animation engine.
Cyanide’s Montreal office – called Amusement Cyanide – opened earlier in 2007 and is working on a number of projects.
"The most complex is the development of a dynamic 3D animation engine which integrates physical and biomechanical laws under the control of a powerful artificial intelligence system," said the company.
The studio at the French HQ is, meanwhile, working on upcoming Warhammer-brand adapation Blood Bowl, which will use the new animation engine.
According to a statement released by the studio, the management say the firm has now "cast aside its PC/sport mantle" as it plans for the action/adventure games it produces in future.
