Simplygon® Continues to Establish Itself as the Best Choice for 3D Optimization of Episodic Entertainment
LINKÖPING, Sweden and OSAKA, Japan – April 23, 2015 - Simplygon, the leading provider of automatic 3D optimization solutions for digital content creation, and Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that Resident Evil® Revelations 2 has been developed using Simplygon, the world’s most powerful platform for optimizing 3D content. Resident Evil Revelations 2 is an episodic game series for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC.
“Episodic games are a growing segment of the games industry and the speed at which content needs to be created for them is a perfect match for Simplygon,” said Martin Ekdal, Co-founder and Vice President of Business Development at Simplygon. “We’re finding that teams need to develop their art more quickly and efficiently while maintaining quality and anyone that sees Resident Evil Revelations 2 will see the team is delivering on all levels.”
”From this project, more than anything, I felt that Simplygon would be a tool that is going to be vital for game dev moving forward,” said Michiteru Okabe, Producer at Capcom. “Obviously it helps that it has been so easy to use, but for me the real merit has been being able to take the data we’ve obtained in our 3D Photo Scan Studio and integrate that into the game so quickly with Simplygon. The time and cost reduction has been incredible.”
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.
