Ludei, a HTML5 platform that brings native performance and features to mobile game developers, says it's adding 3D support to its game development platform, finally making it possible for developers to deliver WebGL 3D games to virtually any mobile device.
"We’ve already made HTML5 cross-platform 2D game development a reality," says Ludei CEO Eneko Knorr. "Now we are unlocking the door for the thousands of Web game developers who want to publish great 3D games on mobile and reach consumers through the most popular app stores. Our 3D rendering allows today’s most popular mobile devices to run a 3D HTML5 game with the same great user experience and performance that native gamers are used to."
Ludei will support 3D game development via the open WebGL standard. WebGL is the browser equivalent of OpenGL, the industry standard for deploying powerful 3D animated games. The addition of 3D rendering on the Ludei platform means for the first time, WebGL runs on every iOS and Android device, so developers don’t have to worry about which devices currently have built-in 3D support to handle their complex, HTML5 mobile animated games, Knorr says. He adds that now 3D game developers, including those that historically publish console and PC games, can use Ludei’s technology to deliver their 3D titles cross-platform to Google Play, Apple App Store and more.
Ludei will demo its 3D rendering technology at the Game Developers Conference (GDC Booth #1031) in San Francisco this week. Developers can sign up now at http://3d.ludei.com/ to be first to try the software and get updates.
