The developer of the ubiquitous Havok engine has a new home under the Microsoft banner. On October 2nd, the Redmond tech giant purchased the Dublin firm from Intel corps for an undisclosed sum of money. Swift to assuage industry fears that the move would bring the popular Havok engine in-house only, Microsoft put forth this statement on their blog.
The company behind the Havok game engine for game developers and the new Project Anarchy mobile game developer suite are hosting the Project Anarchy Mobile Game Dev Challenge. Mobile game developers will be competing for a top prize of $100,000 for the best mobile game build using the new Project Anarchy mobile game development engine.
Not too long ago we announced that Havok, who up until then had only an engine for making PC/console games, had released a new mobile focused game development engine called Project Anarchy. This engine, as you’re probably guessing, is designed for developers of 3D mobile games and allows for cross-platform development, similar to Unity3D.
If you’re a mobile game developer or looking to getting into developing mobile game, there are a few affordable choices out there. Unity3D is one such choice and there are a couple of other ones that offer up indie licenses or are open source. However Havok has decided to release Project Anarchy, a complete 3D game development engine designed for developing Android, iOS and Tizen games.
