Audio solution provider Audiokinetic has announced that through June of 2008, its Wwise audio pipeline package will be bundled for free with Emergent's Gamebryo engine suite.
Wwise is a suite of software designed to provide a complete solution to audio pipelines in game development, supporting "every phase of audio development" according to Audiokinetic's webpage.
Audiokinetic says new customers who buy Gamebryo will receive the Wwise package automatically, while existing customers with an active contract will qualify to use the engine for free.
Said Emergent president Scott Johnson, “The relationship between Audiokinetic and Emergent represents two forward thinking companies who are working together to make game development easier to empower innovation in our industry. Bundling our products and providing our customer base with Wwise demonstrates the sole purpose of our partner program, integrating numerous solutions together and making them more accessible to the development community.”
