Firefall gets a new set of powerful animation tools with Morpheme.
Firefall developer Red 5 has licensed some new technology to help power the upcoming online shooter. In a recent press release, Red 5 announced a new licensing agreement with NaturalMotion, developer of the euphoria engine made popular in gamed like Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, to use their Morpheme animation engine in Firefall. Morpheme adds a powerful set of animation tools to the development team’s arsenal to help craft believable and realistic looking animations.
“In Firefall, we are creating a futuristic and fantastical world, but believability remains a priority,” said Mark Kern, Founder and CEO of Red 5 Studios. “If you cut corners when it comes to animation, you are betraying the vision of your game. Morpheme lets us meet our high standards of quality while maintaining a very efficient pipeline.”
