Aliso Viejo, Calif. - Evolver, developer of a Web interface for building and customizing 3D character models and avatars, has announced a strategic partnership with Emergent Game Technologies to provide support for the integration of Evolver models into Emergent's cutting-edge, game-development system, Gamebryo LightSpeed.
"The game development world is changing quickly thanks to visionary products like LightSpeed. Evolver is excited about the opportunity to deliver customizable and unique characters in a format compatible with this powerful game engine," says Evolver CEO, Brian Nilles. "Our partnership with Emergent provides LightSpeed developers with an easy way to integrate custom 3D characters into their latest projects at a fraction of the production time, effort and costs of traditional modeling and rigging methods."
"Emergent has shown a commitment to partnering with the most innovative companies to continually advance the tools and processes involved in game development, and Evolver is a great addition to our growing roster of partners," adds Katie Morgan, vice president of sales & marketing, Emergent Game Technologies. "The integration of Evolver models into the Gamebryo LightSpeed platform will allow developers to produce visually stunning results more quickly, easily and cost effectively."
Professional characters can also be purchased royalty free for a low price point of $39 -- or $69 with 77 blendshapes ready for facial animation.
Evolver also offers a "white label" version for developers who wish to make Evolver their own 3D character generator available to their audience. Users create and customize their models in a custom branded version of Evolver, and then they are delivered completely automatically using a server-to-server delivery system.
