    The Unigine Engine, which is developed by the Linux-friendly Unigine Corp and is known as providing the most advanced and demanding OpenGL Linux game engine at this time, has been ported to run on tablet computers and smart-phones running Google's Android operating system. Wow...

        Tomsk is in Russia, not Serbia...

          Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems to me that the Unigine Corp is a Russian company, not Serbian. As far as I remember Unigine's HQ are located in Tomsk, not so small city in the Siberian part of the Russian Federation.

              What was corrected before many saw it, is not counted as misspelled.
              As in Odessian (from Odessa, UKR) "What felt down and was fetched fast is not counted as fallen" Kudos to Michael


              BTW Siberian developers sounds like they program in coal mine. You know, Tomsk, -50, vodka, ore mine, ushankas, programmers...

                ...bears driving out on the streets riding the one-wheel bicycles, playing balalaika and people starring around in the similarly looking gray coats chatting with each other about the "cold weather". These well-know stereotypes introduced by the bunch of Hollywood movies was fun once the USSR had fallen and all the crap of such kind had found its way to the national TV networks. Nowdays this stereotypes looks annoying at best, not to say stupid.

                As for my original comment - looks like Michael had corrected the "misspelled" word, changing "Serbian" into "Siberian" after reading comments from crazycheese and me on the forums. Well, both words seems to be quite similar so it's not a big surprise if one had accidentally spelled the first one in place of the second.

                  Is it that cold, really? In that case best thing to do is stay at warmly place, and just code, code ...

                    That's might be the secret beneath the Unigine success :-) (well, possible future success, as we all hope that this linux-compatible engine would gain a major popularity throughout game development studios). As for weather conditions in Tomsk - this year we've got an anomaly warm winter in Siberia having around -20 Celsius degrees while it is typical to have around -35...-40 at this winter dates (i.e., in the middle of January).

                      Holy sh*t! Here we have -20C at most, but it freezes the crap out of me

                          These devices are surely not OpenGL 3 capable, right?

                          Does this mean that the engine has OpenGL 2 fallbacks? This would mean that the engine might even run on OSS drivers. This would be a good thing.

                            As long as mesa has a working EGL state tracker and OpenGL ES implementation yes. When that happens all the tablet and handheld goodness will be able to play ball with linux.
