Ageia Technologies, Inc., a maker of hardware-accelerated physics for games, announced that Quantic Dream is making use of the Ageia PhysX processor for its sequel to Omikron: The Nomad Soul. Quantic Dream has been integrating physics functionality into Karma using the Ageia PhysX SDK. The Ageia PhysX processor will be available on PC add-in boards in late 2005. Karma leverages Ageia PhysX technology to add physics interactivity to its world, a city that has its own day/night cycles, random weather and a population with hundreds of passers-by and air-cushion vehicles. Behind every door in the city is a real-time environment for players to explore. Players can stop for a drink in a bar, buy a book in a bookshop, find medication in a pharmacy and more. Using PCs equipped with the Ageia PhysX processor, players interact with the environment, fight with hands or feet, use weapons, drive air-cushion vehicles and reincarnate.
