Vienna-based V-Play GmbH (the creators of the V-Play Game Engine) announced that their latest update will support the BlackBerry 10 platform. As a key resource for cross-platform mobile game development, all this will now be available to BlackBerry 10 developers.

“Since we launched back in February this year, we’ve received so many requests from our community asking about support for BlackBerry 10,” said Alex Leutgöb, CEO and Co-founder of V-Play. “We’re delighted to announce our support for this emerging platform, making developing games for BlackBerry 10 easier than ever before.”

The V-Play Game Engine is specialized for creating cross-platform casual mobile games and is built on top of the Qt framework; a technology already supported in BlackBerry 10-powered smartphones. The benefits for BlackBerry 10 developers are huge. They can use already familiar tools, programming concepts and even reuse existing source code games and apps created with V-Play.

Thanks to V-Play’s resolution and aspect ratio-independent development approach, games look exactly the same during development on desktops as they do once they’re published on any mobile device – now including the BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry  Q10 and BlackBerry  Q5 smartphones. Black borders on your screen or distorted graphics will be a thing of the past.

“We’ve already seen from the BlackBerry PlayBook that BlackBerry is a powerful gaming platform,” said Christian Feldbacher, CEO and Co-founder at V-Play. “With the launch of our upcoming V-Play Game Network, BlackBerry 10 customers will also finally have the chance to prove their game skills in challenges against users from other platforms.”

“The BlackBerry 10 platform continues to bring many exciting opportunities to game developers,” said Alec Saunders, Vice President of Developer Relations and Ecosystems at BlackBerry. “V-Play is an excellent option for developers looking to bring their casual mobile games to BlackBerry 10 and we are thrilled to have them on board.”
