PX Interactive are developers of the NetDog networking engine for MMOs and Virtual Worlds.
Netdog is positioned as a high performance toolset for game developers and virtual world designers. As such, primary features include load balancing and load distribution tools, seamless world functionality, performance optimization tools, and an intuitive interface that is easy to learn and customize.
NetDog has two major features. First, NetDog is fully cross-platform - developers will be able to create games that can be played across PC, Mac, PS3, Xbox 360, and even iPhone. Network messages will work regardless of the platform, bringing more gamers into each game, and providing unique gameplay options.
Second, NetDog’s architecture is built on a patent-pending distributed networking solution. With small setting changes NetDog can be used in a variety of network topologies - from full client server mode to fully peer-to-peer, with a variety of network computing options in-between. Developers will have the option to off-load some or all of their game processing to the clients in their network, and can choose which functions and events will be handled where. This will allow for bigger, more efficient networks with lower latencies
