FMOD team up with Garage Games


Firelight Technology's FMOD, the choice for many developers for creation and playback of interactive audio in their games, is one step closer to world domination. After winning Game Developer magazine's 2008 Front Line award for best Audio Tool, Firelight have decided to team up with Garage Games and is offering FMOD EX for a super cheap $100 (US) if you're an indie Torque developer. FMOD EX for commercial Torque developers can snag FMOD EX for a measley $500, which is a huge discount from the standard FMOD EX commercial license.

FMOD has been used on titles such as Call of Duty: World at War, Little Big Planet and World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. If you're an indie or commercial developer, it looks like there's no excuse not to take up FMOD EX!

"(e) Licensee may not release Products created with FMOD Ex intended for operation on Game Console Systems including the Microsoft Xbox, Xbox 360, Sony Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Playstation Portable, Nintendo GameCube, Wii, DS.

(f) Licensee may not release Games created with FMOD Ex for distribution on mobile phone handsets."

Freaking terms and conditions ruin all the fun. And they don't seem to have the non-indie licence for me to browse, but oh well.

We're still looking at this though, since we're using FMOD for our audio analysis.
