(October 24, 2007) Pinewood studios based software developers Worldweaver Ltd announce the latest release of their games and simulation platform DX Studio.
With over twenty new features, version 2.2 represents a big step forward for DX Studio. Some of the most significant additions include Vertex Morphing, Animated Textures and Bitmaps, Emissive Map Support, and Gradient Based Reflection for realistic metallic surfaces. There are also some new per-pixel lighting features for lighting complex scenes in real-time.
“The key focus for this release was to improve the gaming capabilities of DX Studio. Previously, most people were happy to use DX Studio for more basic games or prototypes, but our users are now demanding high-end features and greater realism. Version 2.2 delivers this and will allow our users to create complete games on a par with many commercial releases” said CEO and founder Chris Sterling.
To demonstrate the power and simplicity of the DX Studio, Worldweaver are also producing their own game, Hut of the Dead (www.hutofthedead.com), which is due for release in mid November. The game will be free to play and all script available to DX Studio users to help with their own projects.
Licenses are available in both freeware and commercial editions (from £50) and can be downloaded from the website at www.dxstudio.com
