New 3D environment for use on the GBA platform thanks to the guys at Alten8.com development team.


Dunstable, Bedfordshire, UK - May 13 2005 - The Alten8.com development group announces a new 3D engine for the GBA, as well as an already 'Nintendo approved' game.

Alten8 Ltd has moved into the realm of developing new Nintendo GameBoy Advance software and environments thanks to recent acquisitions in which it obtained the rights to what was an unreleased but already 'Nintendo approved' finished game. With this came the 3D engine that powers it - known as the G3DTM engine - which is said to be one of the best of its type for the technology.

Paul Andrews, founder of Alten8 Ltd, said "we have lead code Paul Griffiths, an ex-employee for Runecraft and CodeMasters, adding some finishing touches and improvements to the game in question, which should reach a new standard in 3D environments and gaming. We are also looking at utilising the G3DTM engine to drive a range of games for the GBA and other formats such as mobile phone platforms. Using the existing licenses already acquired by our Retro-Soft arm, we aim to remake some classic games as well as develop new ones."

Andrews continued, "The benefits of using our own engine will mean that we can rival or exceed what has been seen achieved on the platforms mentioned. With our lower development costs and a youthful team, we feel we can produce high-quality cost effective games for the masses."

Alten8 Ltd will have further announcements about its Nintendo GameBoy Advanced and mobile developments soon.
