When RIM let us know they were helping Marmalade port their Marmalade SDK to the BlackBerry PlayBook we were unsure what the result would be. It turns out that it means lots of games that are easily portable to the BlackBerry PlayBook and QNX platform! Marmalade let us know that those three PlayBook games we told you about from EA Games were all made and ported using the Marmalade SDK for the PlayBook. That includes Bejeweled 2, SimCity Deluxe, and The Game of Life.
We know that RIM is also working with Unity to bring their 3D gaming engine to the PlayBook and I have to say I am excited for the results. Marmalade has been doing a sweet job of helping these devs bring their games to the PlayBook. In Marmalade’s own words:
Marmalade is promising some more big announcements at DevCon from devs bringing games and apps. Anybody else excited?
