Leading Publisher Chooses NovodeX Physics SDK for Unique Gameplay Experience MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- AGEIA(TM) Technologies, Inc., a company dedicated to delivering pervasive interactive reality to next-generation games, today announced that Atari's much-anticipated Dragonshard(TM), a real-time strategy game based on the Dungeons & Dragons(R) universe created by Wizards of the Coast, will be one of the first major games developed using AGEIA's NovodeX(TM) Physics SDK. Dragonshard employs an inventive gameplay fusion in which traditional RTS gameplay is enhanced with immersive, Dungeons & Dragons-styled character and unit growth. Such innovation is what AGEIA's NovodeX Physics SDK was designed for, and why leading game developers such as Atari are integrating the NovodeX software into their game development. NovodeX is the only SDK equipped for the future of hardware-accelerated physics based on the AGEIA PhysX(TM) chip. The NovodeX Physics SDK is also the only multithreaded physics API that will unleash the power of multiprocessor systems.
