Sayanti from Nextwave Multimedia send us a notification about their latest commercial product "World Cricket Championship" which uses Blender and the Unity 3D game engine. The game is available for Android OS, Windows, iPad and soon also iPhone.
Visually it looks very good and is another great example that Blender can be used in the commercial world for game content creation. It seems that the combination of Blender and Unity 3D is a very productive pipeline in this rather new game device market. With the Unity 3D engine and its runtime versions for all major OSs and platforms, the artists can focus more on the game design and does not need to worry so much about porting the application / game to other platforms.
Nextwave Multimedia launches three cricket games in 3D, 'World Cricket Championship', 'Street Cricket' and 'Beach Cricket'. The games are made using a combination of Unity 3D game engine and Blender.
The basic game play was developed using Unity 3D rendering engine. The same was used to achieve inbuilt physics in the ball movement, sunlight effect, collision impacts, audio simulations and players animation, which create an overall realistic ambience, simulating a live match.
The 3 cricket games are developed for multiple platforms, Window OS, Apple Mac; iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android OS.
The games have the ability to transport you to the scene of action and are hugely engrossing and entertaining. These limited over games are true to live cricket in every way and involves choosing ones' own side and opponent and as in real cricket, gamers have the option to bat or to field.
World Cricket Championship: This limited over game can be played in 2 modes, 'Quick Play' for short play and 'Tournament' format for unlimited hours.
WCC is launched on Intel AppUp, Chrome Web Store, iTunes and Mac Store. The game will soon be avilable on Nokia Ovi Store and on Facebook.
