Emergent Game Technologies has entered into a a custom integration deal with US-based middleware firm Aristen that combines the cross-platform special effects system FxStudio with Emergent’s Gamebryo LightSpeed engine.

The integration also includes Game Framework and Core Runtime based samples that link with the FxStudio runtime to create WYSIWYG special effect editing.
“From simple particle systems to over-the-top cinematic effects, FxStudio provides LightSpeed customers with the tools and runtime performance to get the job done all utilizing the impressive rapid iteration abilities of this revolutionary engine,” said Aristen founder Andrew Kaplan.
“Emergent is a great partner to work with on this integration and they are truly dedicated to delivering partner technologies that enhance the overall development experience.”
