Independent developers from 21-6 Productions, developers of Orbz, will be on hand to offer the developers perspective. "Orbz is multiplayer and it wouldn't be as much fun if it wasn't also multiplatform as well. We chose the Torque Game Engine from GarageGames partially because it would let us develop with the Mac gamer in mind," comments Justin Mette, President of 21-6 Productions. "Having the quality of award winning netcode that you'd only expect in a Tribes 2 type game built into Orbz has really made this very simple game addictingly fun."
About Marble Blast
Produced by GarageGames in cooperation with Monster Studios, is the first title to use the Torque Game Engine. The arcade-style action game has players racing against time as they navigate their marbles through moving platforms and dangerous hazards, collecting treasure along the way.
Orbz is a multiplayer action/arcade game with a built in strategy game. Players earn points by aiming and firing Orbs at star-shaped targets with a simple mouse interface. The strategy starts when players join the online lobby for matches with up to 10 players.
