A Pre-NGP Game - Spot the Devs and Figure Out the Games

So, all the middleware/developement tool people have duly trotted out their press releases saying they support NGP. They also say that "many developers are already working on games"

For example, Epic's Mark Rein drooled; "NGP raises the bar for the performance of handheld platforms with its multi-core GPU and shader-based, multi-core CPU. This makes Unreal Engine 3 a particularly advantageous fit for NGP. Furthermore, multiple UE3 licensees are already working with NGP, some of which have indicated they intend to release their games for the platform’s launch."

So, our mission now is (and feel free to play along at home)

1. Find the list of signed up developers for each game creation product. (List here)
2. Scan the developer's site for:
  • Existing titles that they are still working on,
  • Job hires for NGP,
  • Unannounced projects,
  • Teasers and other info.
3. Report back
4. Make big-ass list

Okay, you can go to EA or Ubi's site and pick a big list of games, but really we're after the new IP titles, or new games that use NGP's tech in fun ways. The info is out there, we just have to find it. If you're really obsessive then LinkedIn, games developer forums and other dev-centric places are good spots to lurk.
