Havok, a popular software developer in the game industry and subsidiary of the Intel Corporation, recently unveiled its new Project Anarchy game engine. The engine is designed to be a powerful development solution for small and independent teams that are interested in mobile games. Havok claims that the Project Anarchy engine will be capable of bringing high quality 3D games to mobile platforms for the first time. The company is now focusing on making the engine more flexible in order to accommodate various kinds of game developers.

Havok sets sights on flexibility

Havok believes that flexibility may be the key to success for mobile games based on the Project Anarchy engine. Many developers have begun to seek out new talent in their bids to enter into the mobile games space. Several of these developers have been putting more focus on 3D mobile games based on HTML5 engines. The C++ language has long been the standard of the game industry as a whole, but the advent of mobile games had lead to more flexibility in the programming space. Havok believes that this flexibility could be beneficial for the Project Anarchy engine.

Engine may appeal to broader range of programmers

Not only is the engine being designed to help developers focus more on high quality mobile games; it is also being designed to be more attractive to a broader range of programmers. As such, Havok believes that the engine will appeal more to the game industry as a whole rather than a particular demographic of developers that are focused on a singular programming language.

Game market continues to show strong lean toward mobile games

Havok claims to be responding to emerging trends in the gaming market. The industry has been showing signs of becoming increasingly mobile over the past few years. As such, developers are beginning to value tools designed specifically for the mobile space. The Project Anarchy engine may be able to accommodate the needs of these developers and bring a new level of quality to mobile games. As quality increases, so too do the prospects of generating more revenue through mobile gaming.

Havok to break into mobile games

Mobile devices have begun to play a major role in the game industry. Mobile games have become one of the most lucrative sectors of the industry, even cutting into console sales and other hardware. Game developers are beginning to take the mobile space more seriously as a result, with many studios that had once been devoted exclusively to consoles have begun creating games for mobile platforms. Havok, creators of the most widely used graphics engine in the game industry, is one among several in its industry that is beginning to consider mobile as the future of gaming.

Company aims to sidestep technological constraints of mobile platforms

The Havok Engine is used in most of today’s most popular games, whether they are on a console or on a PC. Havok is not used for mobile games, however, due to the fact that it is not designed for mobile platforms. Smartphones and tablets are very different from consoles. While the technology that separates these platforms from one another is very similar, mobile devices are typically less capable of handling games and high-demand software than consoles are. Thus, mobile devices are simply incompatible with the Havok Engine. That does not stop Havok from making an entry into the mobile space, of course.

Project Anarchy to bring 3D to mobile games

This week, Havok has announced its Project Anarchy initiative. Project Anarchy is a 3D graphics engine designed specifically for mobile games. The engine will allow developers to create high fidelity 3D mobile games, which are currently a rarity in the game industry. The vast majority of mobile games are 2D, leveraging a cartoonish style to appeal to young consumers and be more accessible to various mobile platforms. While 2D styles have been well received among consumers, Havok believes that mobile technology has reached a point where mobile games can enter into a new generation.

Project Anarchy will be available for free

Project Anarchy boasts of a wide range of features that can help make a visually impressive game, but the most notable aspect of the engine is that it is free. Havok has no intention of charging developers to use the Project Anarchy engine. This immediately makes it accessible to independent developers that are not backed by a large budget, as typical graphics engines are excessively expensive.
