Vicious Cycle Software Partners with SCEE

Vicious Cycle Software announces that the company is partnering with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) to provide Vicious Engine to game developers in India. Part of SCEE's ongoing strategy to accelerate the adoption rate of the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system and PSP (PlayStation Portable) in the region, Vicious Engine will be available for both platforms to further promote game development in South Asia.

The adaptable, easy-to-learn middleware has been used to design games of every style, including adventure/platformer games like Dead Head Fred and the best-selling Flushed Away, deeply addictive casual fare like Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords for PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system and PSP (PlayStation Portable) system, and even instructional/educational titles like Discover Babylon and INNOV8.

Vicious Cycle Software recently announced a new version of the company's proven game engine, Ve2. Ve2 offers a suite of new and improved features for current generation consoles, including an updated lighting engine, an animation blending component, and modern pixel shader technology, all optimized for current platforms. Ve2 will be widely available to developers in 2008, but the company is currently looking for early adopters who are interested in evaluating Ve2.
