STOCKHOLM, Sweden – August 21, 2013 – Donya Labs, the leading provider of automatic 3D optimization solutions for digital content creation, today announced that Bungie is using its 3D optimization middleware, Simplygon, in the creation of its highly anticipated original title, “Destiny.”

Destiny is in development for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft and melds first-person action gaming with a persistent, dynamic online world. Set in the distant future, Destiny casts players as Guardians of the last city on Earth, who will traverse the ancient ruins of our solar system from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus. Able to wield incredible power, players must battle humanity's enemies and reclaim all that was lost during the collapse of mankind's Golden Age. In a story-driven universe, Destiny's saga unfolds through grand tales and sweeping adventures by immersing gamers in a bold, new world filled with cooperative, competitive, public, and social activities, all seamlessly connected.

“Destiny is a massive title and having Simplygon involved in the process is a huge vote of confidence for us,” said Martin Ekdal, VP of sales & marketing, Donya Labs. “We’re now working with more than half of the major titles in development for consoles.”

Simplygon is popular amongst developers of mobile games; AAA PC and console games; and large MMOs, and is applicable to any medium where 3D art assets are created or utilized. By automatically generating lower-polygon models that are required for different levels of detail (LOD), an optimization process for making games and visual scenes run smoother, at higher frame-rates, and requiring less data, Simplygon helps digital content creators save important resources where artists would otherwise need to manually re-create large amounts of content.
