    The engine is developed by MindPol and has been about for a while.. They are also developing it for the Windows mobile phones. I ran the demos on my Touch Pro 2 Windows mobile and its nothing short of impressive.... The engine is also being developed for the DS and has universal Arm support.



    Check out this video on Youtube



    and



    And this one



    Also



    The engine on the TP2 renders far better than anything I have seen on the Windows Mobile platform without hardware rendering than I have ever seen. I have real high hopes for the DS.

    Holy shit that looks impressive! I know they're just tech demos but the speed is outstanding, loved the actual tech demo video.

    I sent a message to TomatoWAX the guy who posted the vidoes, as he has been chatting with people on a Windows Mobile forum where I also post and I sent him a link to this thread. I really hope he stops by and maybe answers some questions.

    That would be pretty cool if he stopped by. Is he part of the development team or just someone in the know?

    I just got a reply from him :-

    Wow thanks for posting this!

    In fact, we stopped our developing for Nintendo DS since we don't have any businesses on it. However people still ask us for licensing engine for Nintendo DS and now we are thinking of starting the development again.

    Anyway I'll check it and I think I should have a registration first.

    Thank you for introducing our engine and also game.^^

    Have a good day!~



    He is connected to the company in some way. I did say to him that if they didn't continue developing for the DS that the homebrew community would love to get their hands on the engine [​IMG]

    Many thanks for taking your time to reply here. And a huge thanks for considering letting homebrew developers use your engine, I believe homebrew produces some of the most original code and I am sure they will be very excited by this news.

    I hope the DS community rallies round and shows some interest, I personally think this is good news

    I am also looking forward to the engine being used on the Windows Mobile platform.

    These are very interesting times indeed.
