Now it begins to start making DS games as well - with medium-term plans to port its advanced Xtrema Physics 2D technology to the format and 'prototype several innovative games'.
In an official statement, the company said: "In recent months we had lots of inquiries for DS and Wii titles, especially after being among winners on innovation contest at Game Connection Event, Lyon 2007.
