The official Cursed Mountain website is now live, offering new details about this survival horror game set to be available in 2009, exclusively for Nintendo Wii. Cursed Mountain is using the Athena game engine which is rendering the Himalayas on Wii at a quality never seen before. The engine highlights of Athena include amongst others, HDR-Rendering, shader simulations developed especially for Wii in order to display ice, heat and water (realistic reflections and refractions), an ultra-fast particle system for snow storms, soft particles, realistic fog and smoke, depth of field, motion blur, dynamic soft shadows, spherical harmonics lighting, as well as a high performance level-of-detail and streaming system in order to provide long viewing distance of the entire surrounding.
