Make Games! The 10 Best Game Engines of This Generation. Anvil Engine As Seen In: Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia, Shaun White Snowboarding, Assassin's Creed II Somewhere along the line Ubisoft must have got really sick and tired of using other developers' tech, as there has been an explosion in quality in-house engines coming out of the publisher in recent times.

This includes Dunia (Far Cry 2), LEAD (Splinter Cell: Conviction), Fox (Naruto: Broken Bond), LyN (Beyond Good & Evil 2), IRISZOOM (R.U.S.E) and Anvil, aka the Scimitar 2.0 Engine. But for sheer oomph it is hard to go past the Anvil which helped drive Assassin's Creed to one of the most successful new IP debuts in video game history. For both Assassin's and Prince of Persia, it was the way Anvil allowed the animations and the environment to interact in real-time which shone so elegantly.

Lars Doucet's Blog - Flash is dead, long live OpenFL!

Even today, Flash remains a very viable platform with a large install base and a relatively healthy commercial ecosystem. Many awesome games have been written in Flash and/or Adobe AIR, including our own Defender's Quest, which to date has sold over 125,000 copies. But even a long-time Flash booster like myself can read the signs of the time. Flash may not be dead, but it is certainly dying, and the killer is not Steve Jobs, mobile devices, or HTML5, but Adobe. They are slowly neglecting Flash to death. They dropped support for the mobile flash player as well as AIR on Linux, handed Flex over to Apache, and cancelled the long-awaited ActionScript 4 standard. So where do we go from here?

Epic Announces Dramatic Changes To Unreal Engine 4

Update: Now with trailer. Epic has announced today that Unreal Engine 4 is to dramatically change its licensing model.
