Belgian developer Larian Studios has selected the Meqon engine to provide dynamics and physics for its next-generation titles.
Larian said Meqon was chosen for its "ease of use, stability, flexibility and performance." It will enable the developer to produce a wide range of visual effects including liquid surfaces, life-like explosions, ragdoll physics and improved animations overall.
"It is absolutely exciting to see how effortlessly you can turn a static world you've been working on into something so dynamic," said Kenzo ter Elst, Larian's physics integration expert. "[It's] amazing how Meqon really makes a difference."
Larian Studios is the largest developer in Belgium and recipient of the European Seal of Excellence. Its portfolio includes the multi-award winning Divine Divinity.
