Emergent Strikes Deal with Australian Video Game Maker

Emergent Game Technologies is getting into making its own video game titles following an agreement to combine its technology and engineering team with that of Australian game maker, Krome Studios. The Calabasas-based company has made a name for itself with software used by video game developers. Its Gambryo game engine has been used to create award-winning and critically acclaimed console and online games. Through the deal Krome, the largest video game developer in Australia, gets an additional revenue source by folding the best of its technology into the software sold by Emergent, said Emergent CEO Scott Johnson. “We get the added context of game development and tools and technology added to our product,” Johnson said. Combining Krome and Emergent’s engineering expertise has been discussed for quite some time between Johnson and Krome CEO Robert Walsh. Culturally, the two companies will be a good fit, Johnson said. Emergent will license and provide the customer support for the software the two companies develop. Cross-platform games will be released starting toward the end of 2011. “These games are going to be the showpieces of what is possible when using our technology and product processes that we promote,” Johnson said.
