Emergent Game Technologies and it's tech is a dying development engine. There are a few studios in this country that have been burnt trying to make the engine usable. Looks like a sign of two desperate companies trying to stay relevant in a market that is rapidly moving on.

Maybe it's just those studios. Other studios don't seem to have a problem with making great titles with it. Epic Mickey was the most recent I think.
Hey, but you can't post positive on Tsumea, right?

Good news for a change!
I have dabbled with emergent tech and it has potential.
I truly hope this partnership flourishes and encourages other companies to invest in Australia.
We have the talent and experience!
Come to Australia, it's awesome...
