Oxide Games is as the forefront of next-generation technology and gaming.

Top industry engineering talent spanning decades of experience with companies such as Firaxis and Microsoft have formed a new independent company, Oxide Games. In addition to developing cutting-edge games, Oxide is dedicated to making the definitive 3D engine for next-generation strategy games for console and PC. The engine, Nitrous, is a native 64-bit multi-core game engine designed specifically for the hardware now common in PCs as well as the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One.

What makes Nitrous unique is its support for Simultaneous Work and Rendering Model (SWARM). Specifically, the engine renders calls automatically from whatever CPU core is most available. This allows for a vastly larger number of high-fidelity 3D objects to be rendered to the screen at the same time.
