Stonetrip to tempt Torque Engine studios with 50% ShiVa3D discount
Price rolls in at €580
Call it a mark of the firm's sympathy or simply a smart business opportunity, Stonetrip has announced it is to offer a discounted rate for its ShiVa3D engine to developers that signed up for rival Torque.
InstantAction's Torque Engine went under when the firm – previously known as GarageGames before its purchase by InterActiveCorp in 2007 - announced it was winding down operations on November 12.Cost cutting
As a result, Stonetrip claims it will offer Torque developers a 50 percent discount on a license for its ShiVa3D engine, bringing the price down from €1499 to €749.50.
The firm will also deduct the original cost of Torque Engine's license, bringing the final price in at €580.50.
"Because of the way ShiVa3D is designed, Torque engine users will find the transition to ShiVa3D a smooth and painless process, but we'll be on hand to support developers through that process," said Stonetrip CEO Philip Belhassen.
