Anark announces the official launch of the Anark Gameface bundle, the first complete UI authoring solution for game developers, at the 2005 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
Extensive customer feedback from Anark’s Developer Release program has been integrated into the new release, resulting in expanded features including the ability to author data driven menus and in-game user interfaces, in addition to the traditional game front end. Anark Gameface can now easily handle the typically labor intensive requirements of sports, strategy, and role playing game user interfaces.
The Anark Gameface bundle is composed of two products, Anark Studio and Anark Format SDK. The Anark Format SDK allows programmers to build the UI pipeline once and then hand over UI creation to artists. Artists then use Anark Studio, a professional authoring tool to rapidly prototype and polish the final UI.
