Hammer Technologies grouped part of the members of Digital Dreams Multimedia
and NoriaWorks Entertainment
. The biggest publication of Hammer was undoubtedly the DIV Games Studio, a programming environment for creating video games. The release of this product, which occurred during 1998, was a resounding sales success and attracted a good number of users wanting to create games but that did not have the knowledge needed to use more general languages like, for example, C or C++.
Other notable titles were Snow Wave: Avalanche
, Tie Break Tenis 98
Since 1999, Hammer began to change its development policy toward more complex productions and, of course, with a longer production period. The first example of this new style was embodied in a project which never saw the light, Neon Angel
, a futuristic 3D video adventure with promising looks. But it was cancelled due to the demise of the company.
