Gamebryo Lightspeed licensees are in for a nice surprise – Emergent has teamed up with Audiokinetic to provide Wwise for every customer, all integrated into the engine out of the box.
The partnership extends Emergent's focus on rapid iteration to cover audio too, with sound designers now able to generate and iterate on audio assets without recompiling, making the process of tweaking values to perfection much quicker.
“Emergent is committed to driving game development standards and integrating tools that can be used by all game designers right from the start,” said Scott Johnson, president, Emergent Game Technologies.
“Wwise adds the best sound technology in the business to LightSpeed, giving developers access to the tools they desire – and need – to succeed as the new face of AAA. No matter what platform, no matter what genre, we’re providing the development environment for building a studio, not just a single game.”
André Nadeau, president and CEO of Audiokinetic, added: "We have had tremendous success with Emergent's development platform. It was only natural to proceed with the bundling since Wwise and LightSpeed work so well together. We believe in Emergent's philosophies and approach to the industry. Community driven technology is key to the industry's future."
