Morrisville, North Carolina - October 27, 2004 - Over the past few years, an increasing number of game developers have relied on OC3 Entertainment’s technology to help create realistic talking characters. Convincing facial animation is extremely difficult to achieve due to the immense amount of information humans are capable of communicating with subtle facial gestures. Meanwhile, game developers are challenged with great quantities of dialog sequences and shortened development timelines, driving them to use the most efficient tools and technology on the market. Recognizing the contribution that OC3 Entertainment technology has made to the gaming industry, Game Developer Magazine has recently selected version 1.1 of the Impersonator product as a finalist for a Front Line Award.
The Game Developer Magazine’s website states the following about the Front Line Awards: “As games have become more and more sophisticated over the years, so have the development tools used to make them. The Front Line Awards recognize those software and hardware companies whose tools enable faster and more efficient game creation for advancing the state of the art.”
“We are extremely proud of the Front Line Award nomination” says Doug Perkowski, CEO of OC3 Entertainment. “Facial animation is potentially the limiting factor that prevents people from interacting convincingly with 3D technology. The tremendous growth in interest for our software over the past few years along with the Frontline Award nomination suggests that the industry as a whole recognizes the importance of this challenge and trusts OC3 Entertainment with the task of finding a solution.”
The Front Line Awards are announced in the January 2004 issue of Game Developer Magazine.
