Tomsk, Russia – February 4, 2010 – Unigine Corp. announces the licensing of its top-notch Unigine engine to Lukewarm Media, an independent game developer.

“Lukewarm Media is a rare combination of daring talent, passion and experience in game development industry. Being built in less than 2 months, the Unigine-based demo of Primal Carnage has really
impressed me. When powered by such a productive team, the game has very good chances to gain significant success. Along with providing our middleware solutions to large established companies, our company has also granted support for a lot of independent companies. Independent development
is quite a rocky road, so we will do our best to help out from the technical side, thus helping this
willing and audacious team to release their feature-rich game”.

- Denis Shergin, CEO of Unigine Corp.

“Working with the Unigine engine has been an inspirational yet fantastic experience. Lukewarm Media feels privileged to work with a support team as dedicated and motivated as the Unigine team. With Unigine's top-end visual rendering system and support they offer their clients, it’s no question that Unigine will be a top choice for many developers in the coming years. The Unigine engine, with its quick-to-learn toolset, has helped Lukewarm Media bring its ideas to reality. There are a number of other exciting aspects to using the Unigine engine including (but not limited to) its support for DirectX 11, and being able to include the Unigine toolset and SDK for development of custom content and mods. This is a mutually beneficial partnership as it should allow both the Unigine and Primal Carnage communities to flourish. Overall, Unigine is an engine that without doubt has the amount of power needed to get a dinosaur moving!”

- Ashton Andersen, Producer – Lukewarm Media

Go indie game developers! Looks fantastic can't wait to see how it turns out. It reminds me of the Carnivores and those good ol' days where the eyes were the targets for the T-Rex. I hope there are some unique gameplay elements, I saw that it was to be described as an arcade shooter but I hope it doesn't have that UT3 gun fighting style and maybe something a bit more elaborate, iron sights are always a plus. :)

AshtonAndersen Feb 5 2010 replied:

It's hard to say at the moment, but I would say no more then $20 usd. But it's to early to tell. Right now we are none-funded team and do this on spare time so we can sell it as cheap as we like. However if a publisher picks us up then that can change depending on their pricing.

Looks amazing, but I really hope the DoF effect is just being used for exaggeration right now. It's rather excessive in those shots, and would give me a headache.

I wear glasses for a reason!

(Yeah yeah, the reason is because I spend too much time behind a computer screen, but also so I can see things sharp!)

AshtonAndersen Feb 5 2010 replied:

To be honest, we will have DOF but not as crazy as that. It's mostly used for "effect" to show off the Post effects in unigine as well as focus on our characters. It's just a screen shot technique, mass effect 2 did a bit of it. Speaking of glasses... Primal carnage in 3D? anyone? =)

Alright, sounds good. :D And yeah, whoops. I meant DoF in moderation is okay! And... Do you mean Nvidia's 3D, or other methods as well?
