Korean MMO publisher Nexon has signed a multi-title licensing deal with Scaleform that will see the company's Scaleform GFx UI solution integrated into four of the publisher's upcoming games, including Mabinogi: Heroes.
"To deliver our next generation of MMOGs, only a best-of-class user interface solution would suffice: we chose Scaleform GFx," says Mabinogi: Heroes project manager Eun-Seok Yi.
Scaleform GFx combines hardware-accelerated Flash rendering with Adobe Creative Suite's image, vector and video motion graphics software tool chain. It's designed to allow teams to implement hardware-accelerated content and user interfaces including intro logo and cut scene videos, menu UIs and HUDs, animated textures, minigames and full casual games.
The company says it's fully cross-platform and comes integrated with many game engines for UI and casual game development on PC and major consoles.
Brendan Iribe, president and CEO of Scaleform Corporation, says "As a global leader, Nexon's selection of Scaleform signals our solution's increasingly pervasive adoption for PC-based titles that span from casual gaming with mainstream audiences to hardcore AAA titles, particularly as publishers look for innovation opportunities that deliver on a cost-conscious bottom line."
