Turn 10 Studios Game Development Studio Accelerates Forza 5 Game Build Time by More Than 6X with IncrediBuild

Turn 10 Studios is a subdivision of Microsoft Studios, established in 2001 as a first-party racing game developer. Turn 10 Studios began working on the original Forza Motorsport ® racing game to fill the void of simulation racing games on the Xbox ® console. With an emphasis on driving mechanics, and the newest features of Xbox LIVE ® , the original Forza Motorsport was released in May of 2005 to much critical acclaim and community support. Today, Turn 10 has recently released their fifth version of the popular Forza Motorsport racing game for Xbox One.

Business Needs

As a game developer, Turn 10 Studios has a major challenge in getting games to market as fast as possible. In the course of the game development lifecycle, there are several CPU-intensive processes, such as code builds, video and graphics rendering, platform conversion, physical engine management, and lighting engine management. Each of those processes by itself takes a significant amount of time, leading to a slow delivery of a market-ready product.

Turn 10 needed to find a way to substantially accelerate their development processing and game build-time.

Solution 

Turn 10 Studios found an ideal partner with Xoreax Software, a developer of software acceleration technologies and a Microsoft Visual Studio Partner.

Xoreax reviewed the challenges that Turn 10 faced with their excessive computation times and proposed IncrediBuild—a product Xoreax has developed based on their software acceleration technology platform.

IncrediBuild accelerates not only code build, but also testing code analysis, QA scripts, rendering, physical and lighting engines, and even custom tools by a factor of 10 to 30 times.

IncrediBuild is also fully integrated with Visual Studio®, making it the ideal solution for Windows®-based developers.

Results

Turn 10’s Forza 5 racing game development builds originally took roughly 60 minutes. With IncrediBuild, build-time was reduced from 60 minutes to 8 minutes—a 600% reduction.

Similarly, in the development cycle, the conversion of Autodesk 3DS Max rendering output took as long as 6 hours. With IncrediBuild, rendering was condensed to 20 minutes.
