Common Questions

Q: Are you a company now?
A: Not yet. But members of the team have started working on the project since early 2004. In July 2005, the ParaEngine Tech Studio is formally established in Shenzhen Tech-Innovation International (STI), Since then, we have become a well organized team of software developers and designers. The studio is funded mostly by the Institute. A company will be registered when we had further investment and summoned the required people. [Updated 2007.10: We are now a registered company called ParaEngine Corporation]
Q: Is ParaEngine completely developed by your studio?
A: Yes, ParaEngine is a 3D computer game engine completely developed by us. We own the intellectual property of the game engine. ParaEngine is initially designed and developed by Li, Xizhi, director and lead programmer of the studio.
Q: Is ParaEngine suitable for game development now?
