Epic Games veterans announce their first iOS title will be developed using Unreal Engine 3 in a multi-title agreement between the studio and Epic Games.
BitMonster Games, an independent studio made up of veteran developers from Epic Games, announces today a long-term, multi-title agreement that offers them the rights to develop new independent titles using Epic's Unreal Engine technology.
The first title in development under the agreement, Lili, is being made for iOS devices using Unreal Engine 3.
The upcoming role-playing game will take place on a mysterious island and feature a "non-combat" system for interacting with enemies.
"Epic has been extremely supportive of our new studio and in helping us build the game of our dreams," said Lee Perry, president of BitMonster. "We set out to create an adventure that is appropriate for nearly anyone. As a designer, it's exciting to see that the Unreal Engine 3 tools are better than ever, and they provide everything we need to achieve a gratifying and imaginative experience."
Lili is in the final stages of production. Its first trailer was released today.
