Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, a game development company, announced that it has chosen the BigWorld Technology Suite as the platform for its new MMORPG, Stargate Worlds. This officially licensed MGM property is the first massively multiplayer game based on the Stargate series.
The BigWorld Technology Suite is an integrated set of tools, software and systems that provides all of the underlying technology and content development tools required to produce an MMOG. The suite offers operators and studios a lower total time-to-build and cost of ownership, according to the company
The BigWorld Server architecture allows operators to run several games on a single server cluster, reducing the cost of running the game, while the enhanced Content Creation Pipeline reduces the time and cost of building and filling out the complex worlds required in next-generation games, BigWorld claims.
"We evaluated many client server solutions to aid us in creating a truly breakthrough next-generation MMO," said Joe Ybarra, Vice President of Product Development at Cheyenne Mountain. "But by far the best overall solution for us is BigWorld's powerful client/server engine and streamlined production toolset. We are excited to be teaming up with them on this project."
