Engine tech company Emergent has a new licensee in Korean developer Entwell, which will use Emergent tech to develop an MMORPG.
Emergent, maker of the Gamebryo and Gamebryo Lightspeed engines, has made visible strides among online developers in Asia in recent months; at the end of March, Korea's EYA Soft revealed it would develop its free-to-play 3D MMORPG Iris Online
And just before that, Emergent announced two more Gamebryo licensing agreements
with Shanghai-based Goldcool and Seoul-based JoyMaster Interactive, both of which are working on online role-playing games.
Emergent says it aims to support development of single and multiplayer games alike in any genre, and promises "dedication to providing a one-stop cross-platform toolset" for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC.
In March it unveiled updates
to its Gamebryo LightSpeed development platform, adding new features and establishing a "Kickstart" program for more transparency on the devkit.
