The Vicious Engine is a game engine offering functionality for rendering, sound, networking, physics, game play scripting, and lighting. It is developed by Vicious Cycle Software, and was first released in January 2005.

Overview[edit]

It supports Nintendo GameCube, Wii, WiiWare, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Network, and Microsoft Windows.

Vicious Engine 2 (sometimes stylized as Ve2) has been optimized for eighth-generation consoles and high-end PCs. It was released on March 25, 2009 at the Game Developers Conference. It features improvements for next-generation console, especially the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
