Nova Logic's Voxel Space 3D engine has been granted another patent. The new patent, issued February 1, covers the second and third generations of Nova Logic's Voxel Space technology. The company was granted the original patent on the technology back in 1996, though the engine itself debuted in Comanche Maximum Overkill
in 1992. "A patent is a good way to share ideas with academia without losing any business advantage," said Voxel Space creator Kyle Freeman, "Not having to maintain our unique processes as high-level trade secrets allows for a more open development environment and makes investing in long-term research and development more rewarding."
