The Diesel Engine was created by GRIN for their games including: Ballistics, Bandits: Phoenix Rising, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2.

The Diesel Engine was built to take full advantage of the potential of Xbox and nVIDIA's upcoming chipsets. GRIN cooperates closely with nVIDIA, makers of the Gforce graphic cards for Xbox, in order to be ahead and offer the gamer the best possible gaming quality and feel. The 3D-engine is the heart of the game and determines how things behave in the gaming environment. It handles movements, bump mapping, specular lighting, bones, chrome positional sound and music, as well as dynamic surfaces and more. All this comes together to insure that there are no limits when developing a GRIN game.

This engine is not for sale. I lodged an enquiry with Overkill software about a licence for the Diesel Engine. They said they have no plans on licencing the engine as of yet.
