“Is it better to have your own technology for making games, or should you license an engine?” is a question that I get asked now and then.
Here at Remedy, we have always used our own technology. Call it a Nordic thing. Many of our neighbouring studios have used their own technology for the longest of times too.
Northlight is a comprehensive game engine that, like every game engine, has a unique take on workflows and data pipelines. It has modern rendering technology, offers comprehensive solutions for most – if not all – areas of game development, and it can be used to make games for multiple console platforms and PC.
