Recently, while I googled for some stuff, I got my eyes on this headline of a new wm game engine. I looked into it and watched a few videos demonstrating it's functionality... well, it was pretty damn impressive!

The engine is developed by MindPol, and it has been existing for quite a while, just not for windows mobile. It is about to be ported though, and they write in the description of this video (an app made with their game-engine) that they'd like some attention to speed up their release. :) So, if there is anyone out there who would like some iPhone-like 3d games coming to your device in near future, I think it'd be a good idea to support these guys!

A quote from the description of the video I linked above:

"This game and characters was made in September 2008.
But we didn't complete yet cause of another project we do.

... Actually we need more support.
Please give us your interest and support.

Thank you :)"

[EDIT]: This video was demonstrated on an Xperia X1 - which has about the same performance specs as a touch pro. :)

Hmm. Seeing this running on the X1 makes me wonder. What driver are they using? Standard X1 drivers on a standard X1 rom?

Hello, Thanks a lot for introducing our engine.^^

I'm a developer of this engine, Galatea Engine.

Yes, we succeed in converting PC version to WM version.

Now our engine supports Windows Mobile perfectly.

And the used driver (and rom) in that movie you saw is a standard driver which can be downloaded in Sony Ericsson Developer World.

As for Xperia X1, we used them.

Nowaday, our engine is more faster and better than before.

One more, Omnia doesn't support OpenGL|ES yet but D3DM.

However their new Omnia will support OpenGL|ES 2.0 and we are waiting for that. (In korea, we can't get any information of that device actaully.)

Anyway if you want more information, please visit our website www.MindPol.com or www.GalateaTechnology.com.

And today we released a trial game for Xperial X1 and some devices. Please check this on www.MindPolGames.com. (However it's not 3D game but 2D.)

Hello,

You can get some samples at the link below.

http://cafe.naver.com/bjphone/288534

BUT THOSE ARE NOT STABLE VERSION.
(Check the date, they were uploaded.)

So it may make some problems. (Of course it's not big. Just turn off and turn on. In many cases, there is no problem.)

I will upload stable samples at www.GalateaTechnology.com later. I already got stable version, but I can't upload these now.)

Have a nice day!

Interesting, so you're developing this engine on stock OGLES drivers. Have you considered using OpenVG for this? It seems the MSM7201A devices like the X1 also support OpenVG with a few modifications. If you're interested, you can find a modified 3D driver which has that support in my signature.
Great work by the way, it seems to run perfectly on my Blackstone. (Touch HD)

You should download those in http://cafe.naver.com/bjphone/288534.

You can find links on upper right side of that article.

Anyway I uploaded STABLE VERSION SAMPLES on that article.

Little bit updates and I packed samples with two resolutions. (WVGA & WQVGA)

Please check this at the link.

And if you still can't download it, I'll upload these on our official website.
