Exit Games today announced that its leading network engine Photon has been selected by KranX Productions to power the network features of Nival’s Kings Bounty: Legions, a social massive multiplayer online game (MMOG).
Once more Photon was chosen by a top-tier development studio due to its unparalleled and unique feature set, which include:
- Reliable UDP, the ideal protocol for MMOGs
- C/C++ based core for ultimate performance
- Server extensibility in C#/.NET
“It was the right decision to have chosen Exit Games Photon. It offers features you won’t find in other network engines but which are critical for MMOs, such as reliable UDP and unparalleled performance” says Andrew ‘Krank’ Kuzmin, CEO of KranX Productions. He continued ”Photon is really straight forward to work with, meaning we did not need much support. But whenever we did need help the Exit Games’ team was there, and they helped resolve any issues in a minimum of time and with the minimum of fuss.”
Christof Wegmann, CTO and founder of Exit Games, added ”The team at KranX is really at the forefront of technology and we are proud that Photon was chosen by KranX for such an impressive title as King’s Bounty:Legions.” He went on “We have worked hard to make Photon the first choice for MMOG developers when it comes to network middleware, and we will continue to improve all aspects of Photon in future iterations.”
