Mexican independent developer Xibalba Studios has announced its formation, revealing new PC casual title Icebreakers
and the licensing of Trinigy's Vision Engine for the title, with hopes to bring the game to next-gen consoles in the future.
The company, which is based in Monterrey, Mexico, and was actually founded back in 2004, publicly unveiled its debut video game, Icebreakers
, at the Electronic Game Show in Mexico City.
The title, which "immerses players in a new fast-paced extreme winter sport" involving vehicles, has both offline and online multiplayer, and is due for release on PC in 2009.
In addition, the company announced that it has licensed Trinigy's Vision Engine for the title.
"During the early stages of development we realized that the Vision Engine will allow us to bring our original idea of Icebreakers to reality,” said Ricardo Villarreal, founder and CEO of Xibalba Studios.
"Additionally, the Vision Engine is compatible with Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, allowing a smooth cross-platform workflow; this will let us bring Icebreakers to the next generation of home consoles in the future."
