Vicious Cycle Software announced that the its cross-platform middleware solution, Vicious Engine, has joined Nintendo's Wii Third Party Tools Program.

The Vicious Engine is a middleware solution for creating games across multiple platforms. The tool's ease of use and wide array of features separate the Vicious Engine from the competition as an approachable technology that does not require a large staff of full-time programmers to maintain.

"Wii is a remarkable platform with boundless potential," said Eric Peterson, president of Vicious Cycle. "As a Wii middleware solution, the Vicious Engine will provide developers with a practical approach to exploring the unique and creative possibilities of Wii. Our technology allows developers to focus on what makes Wii special--fun gameplay and innovative peripheral integration."

The Vicious Engine's capabilities allow developers to create games with ease and speed while still delivering top-notch quality. Point-and-click scripting, Wii Remote and Nunchuk integration, intuitive AI (Artificial Intelligence) development, straightforward platform conversion and the ability to powerfully render complex, dynamic scenery efficiently are just a few of the many features of the Vicious Engine.

The Vicious Engine provides a comprehensive, easy-access suite of development tools that are accessible to all members of a software development team--from artists, to designers, to engineers. The Vicious Engine helps developers and publishers to meet the demands of shorter development cycles and tighter budgets by allowing the teams to concentrate on game content rather than core technology.
