Game asset marketplace TurboSquid has secured a deal with InXile Entertainment to sell 3D models created by the developer.
InXile was founded by long-running dev Brian Fargo, and is best known for Wasteland 2, Torment and the Bard’s Tale series. The partnership will see in-game assets from these games and more – including as-yet-unreleased titles – sold via TurboSquid, starting with Wasteland 2.
Models will be available in various standard 3D and game engine formats, and will come with a royalty-free licence, according to TurboSquid’s announcement. The first items are expected to be go online later this year.
“We’re huge believers in stock 3D, and making our own studio’s labor intensive creations available will benefit the indie game dev community as they evolve and drive our industry forward,” said Fargo.
“3D models for AAA titles are often built and used for only a single title. It made sense to create additional value out of our existing content by opening it up to other developers.”
TurboSquid CEO Matt Wisdom adds: “Studios are often sitting on thousands of 3D models that were incredibly expensive to produce. Selling the content helps offset the rising costs of development for the studio, and it allows developers around the world to access amazing, consistent, game-ready models.”
