Our Customers Love Granny:

Through the comments and stories shared via the survey, we've learned a lot about companies that are easy to work with, and provide software that is designed well and easy to integrate. The company that was called out most frequently was RAD Game Tools. RAD offers "great support."
Game Developer Magazine - Middleware Showdown
Our XBLA title, "The Maw," ended up having over 850 animations and over 150 character and object models. Our biggest boon to reducing these into the 150 MB requirement for XBLA titles was Granny 3D, our middleware choice for animation and mesh compression and animation playback. Granny uses some very clever methods to reduce the amount of disk space and memory used by animations, and the extensive set of export settings that Granny provides allowed us to set the compression level on a per animation basis or even a per bone basis!
Frank Wilson, CTO and co-founder of Twisted Pixel Games
"We've relied on Granny for years and have enjoyed working with its imaculately well designed and clean API, powerful capabilities, and ever expanding breath of features. Granny serves as the core of our HeroEngine MMO platform and the basis for our art and tool pipeline. With Granny, many low-level technical burdens are eliminated without ever impeding our creativity. And, as with any middleware technology, a critical key is the support you receive; in this regard RAD Game Tools comes second to none."
David Whatley, President & CEO Simutronics Corp.
I was able to upgrade our existing animation layer to be running on with Granny in about a week's time. The Granny API is easy to use and simple, and their support has been fast and helpful. Granny now gives us the control and power we need to bring our next-gen game to life.
Adam Brennecke, Programmer, Obsidian Entertainment, Inc.
"Creative Assembly Australia has a long standing relationship with RAD Game Tools. We have used Granny on our two most recent projects - Medieval II:Total War and Stormrise. Granny 3D Max Exporter and Run-Time SDK are crucial parts of our asset conversion pipeline. The level of support we've had from Granny engineers is absolutely 1st class."
George Fidler, The Creative Assembly Australia General Manager
"Granny kicks ass and has saved our butts!"
Pierre Gagne, Lead Programmer, UO Third Dawn, Origin
"That's the beauty of RAD, all the answers are always 'YES'."
Paul Hughes - Warthog Technical Director
"Granny changed exporting animation data from something we dreaded to something we no longer even have to think about. The tools and support are excellent, not to mention the great performance."
Jason Zisk, Lead Programmer - nFusion Interactive LLC
"Well, I have to say Granny pretty much rules. I have no idea how much engineering it would take us to get this level of feature and function on our own, and thankfully I don't have to figure that out since Granny does everything."
Brandon Curiel, Venan Entertainment - CTO
