You may remember we exclusively revealed Size Five Games’ The Swindle all the way back in July. Details have been scarce on it ever since, but I managed to sneak into the Size Five blog, where I found Dan sharing fresh news of the engine that The Swindle will be running on. Here he is, in his own highly quotable words:
The GiANT engine is built on four core technologies, which have allowed me to construct a custom platform game engine capable of all sorts of whizzy graphical treats.
He goes on to talk about physics doodahs, and lighting wotsits. Sounds complicated: But fun! He says he’s “largely targeting PC”, and that’s because PC is the best!
