Frozen Codebase Selects Vicious Engine for Elements of Destruction

Vicious Engine, a middleware solution developed by Vicious Cycle Software, has been selected by Frozen Codebase, a game studio composed of industry veterans responsible for Quake IV, Homeworld and Anarchy Online, to power their upcoming Xbox LIVE Arcade title Elements of Destruction. An engaging, frenetic game where players use the spectacularly destructive powers of nature to raze and blaze as they desire, Elements of Destruction also proves once again the Vicious Engine's utility in quickly empowering game development teams to realize their interactive entertainment visions.

Elements of Destruction represents the latest entry in a growing list of diverse, genre-crossing titles that have been created using the Vicious Engine. 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 Portable, 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 on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation computer entertainment system, including an updated lighting engine, an animation blending component, and modern pixel shader technology, all optimized for current platforms.
