Just because Sony's cross-platform PhyreEngine -- which powered games such as Flower
, Critter Crunch
and Catan --
is free to use, doesn't mean it's not beefy
. At least, that's how GripShift
developer Sidhe feels -- both of their PSN releases used the engine, and they've got nothing but rave reviews
for the technology.
Sidhe managing director Mario Wynands called the PhyreEngine a "great solution for download products where budgets are lower and every dollar counts." So, if you're having difficulties getting your next-gen Rock Paper Scissors sim off the ground, Sidhe's just supplied a ringing endorsement for an extremely cost efficient solution.
