Marketing Text A survey of game engine middleware and development suites in terms of ability to support development of digital sports-based games.
This result is a survey of existing technologies currently in uses with regard to digital sports/ exercise games, in particular the game engines and the development suites which are used to develop and run digital sports/ exercise games. The result was developed corroboratively between FHJ, due to their experience in the reviewing of games and technical information and Simsoft, due to their experience in using game engines for development.
Initially a template was developed and agreed between partners to specify the information to be gathered for each engine/ middleware suite including basic target platforms, language, development platforms and cost of license.
Following this, 7 different game engines/ middleware suites were reviewed.
Target group Representatives of final user categories, final users, vocational and training centres, coaches, tutors, policy makers, research institutions
Result This survey contributes to the project objectives by identifying the technology currently in use with regard to the development of digital sports games.
Area of application
For project partners, the survey is a useful tool for game development, identifying the tools available for development, the costs, characteristics, etc. In particular, it provides information for the development of the serious sport project game. The survey also provides a current “state-of-the-art” with regard to digital sports games in the games industry”.
For stakeholders such as trainers/ educators, coaches, or GBL experts, the survey provides information on the tools being used to develop games and can identify tools for use for game developers or those interested in game development.
