Engine company Trinigy says WebVision, a new development framework it says brings the functionality and feature set of its Vision Engine to browser games, will be included for free to all licensees of the Vision Engine SDK beginning immediately.
WebVision supports "all common PC-based browsers", according to Trinigy, which lists Internet Explorer 6 and up, Firefox 2.0 and up, Google Chrome and Opera 9 and up. Trinigy's Vision Engine has up until now been available on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii.
Like many engine providers, Trinigy has recently been making strides in the Asian market, where engines for 3D browser-based games are finding an increasing base of licensees. The addition of WebVision to its Vision Engine package follows on the company's announcement of seven licensing deals
with studios in China, South Korea, and Vietnam, including big players like Neowiz and SmileGate.
"Games delivered through and played in browsers have really grown in popularity over the last few years," says managing director Dag Frommhold. "WebVision now extends our flexible Vision Engine to developers of browser-based games."
