Web 3D game developers gain access to the Apple and Android markets for first time; technology demos this week at GDC
San Francisco – March 25, 2013 – Ludei, the only HTML5 platform that brings native performance and features to mobile game developers, today announced it is adding 3D support to its game development platform, finally making it possible for developers to deliver WebGL 3D games to virtually any mobile device.
“We’ve already made HTML5 cross-platform 2D game development a reality,” said Ludei CEO Eneko Knorr. “Now we are unlocking the door for the thousands of Web game developers who want to publish great 3D games on mobile and reach consumers through the most popular app stores. Our 3D rendering allows today’s most popular mobile devices to run a 3D HTML5 game with the same great user experience and performance that native gamers are used to.”
Ludei will support 3D game development via the open WebGL standard. WebGL is the browser equivalent of OpenGL, the industry standard for deploying powerful 3D animated games. The addition of 3D rendering on the Ludei platform means for the first time, WebGL runs on every iOS and Android device, so developers don’t have to worry about which devices currently have built-in 3D support to handle their complex, HTML5 mobile animated games. Now 3D game developers, including those that historically publish console and PC games, can use Ludei’s technology to deliver their 3D titles cross-platform to Google Play, Apple App Store and more.
Ludei will demo its 3D rendering technology at the Game Developers Conference (GDC Booth #1031) in San Francisco this week. Developers can sign up now at http://3d.ludei.com/ to be first to try the software and get updates.
The Ludei GDC booth will feature:
- Exclusive demo of Ludei Platform 3D HTML5 mobile game support
- Ludei HTML5 cross-platform game publishing and performance acceleration demo
- Live HTML5 March Madness basketball shootout—old-school arcade-style, with a big prize for each day’s high score
Developers using Ludei’s technology will be able to quickly build, accelerate, drive revenue, test and deploy their 2D and now 3D HTML5 projects to both native and Web app stores. Supported destinations currently include the Apple App Store, Google Play and the Amazon, NOOK®, Chrome and FirefoxOS markets, as well as Pokki and Intel AppUp.
