Imagination, Digital Legends, Firemint, Nokia and Samsung deliver mobile 3D leadership
At GDC Imagination and Digital Legends, creators of the stunning ONE for Nokia N-Gage by Nokia and Kroll for iPhone, are working together to bring real world experience of developing using the POWERVR Insider SDK to GDC attendees. Imagination will present a tutorial on developing mobile-3D games using the POWERVR SDK and Tools. This free session starts with art assets created by Digital Legends and goes on to give a practical, detailed introduction in this leading SDK package for mobile 3D-content development with POWERVR, the de facto standard for mobile-3D.
In the GDC Mobile programme Imagination and Firemint, winners for ‘Excellence in Connectivity’ at last month’s 5th International Mobile Gaming Awards, will be presenting on ‘Optimizing for OpenGL ES 2.0: The foundations of Firemint’s Real Racing’ (
Imagination will be joined at GDC Expo by AAA-title developer IUGO Mobile Entertainment, creators of the Toy Bot Diaries series, Zombie Attack! and Re-Volt, described by Guinness’ World Records Gamer’s Edition 2009 as the world’s “most advanced mobile game.” IUGO will be previewing Freeballin’ an epic pinball game due to be released soon.
Swedish state of the art game developer Jadestone will also be joining Imagination on its booth at the GDC Expo to demonstrate the latest in its mobile games, including the IMGA Innovation Award-winning Kodo Evolved.
Ari-Pekka Kotanen, Manager, Games Device Software Nokia says: “We are delighted with the support for a wide range of Nokia phones in the POWERVR Insider SDK. Nokia was one of the first to recognise the importance of advanced graphics in mobile devices for a wide range of applications such as gaming, user interfaces and navigation. Our current and future phones with POWERVR technology are examples of Nokia’s commitment to leading the industry in graphics for multimedia computing and we can’t wait to see what Imagination, Digital Legends (developer of ONE for N-Gage) and Firemint (developer of Mega Monsters for N-Gage) have to show.”
