LiveFire from ngmoco: the Quake 3 engine lives on the iPhone
“The two most important things in a FPS title are framerate and control—if you don’t have those, you’re going to be fu**ed,” Neil Young tells me. He’s playing LiveFire in front of me, the first-person title that gave the company so much buzz at Apple’s SDK event. It’s just as impressive in person, with a great framerate and controls that look solid… although no one will let me actually play. “We’ll get this running faster,” Young says, unsatisfied with even this impressive demonstration.
… “This is actually the Quake 3 engine. We completely rewrote the renderer, and we completely rewrote the control system and the animation system. We started from that baseline and then we’ve went from there.”
Let that sink in: the Quake 3 engine is running—very well—on the iPhone.
