Reverb Publishing has announced that the publisher has reached an agreement with Epic Games to reach a site license agreement with the Unreal Engine 3 engine. This means that Epic will be providing all development teams working with Reverb the full source code access to the latest UE3 technology and Epic’s world-class technical support.
Dungeon Defenders was the first Reverb title to utilize the Unreal Engine 3. Developer Trendy Entertainment's game was released on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC.
The agreement is a part of Reverb's recruitment of independent developers, promising them full access to Unreal Engine 3 in exchange for developing titles for them. The publisher cites such titles as the aforementioned Dungeon Defenders as well as Black Knight Sword, Jeremy McGrath’s OffRoad, JAM Live Music Arcade, and Sanctum 2 as examples to its commitment to indie game publishing.
