Engine

Syberia uses different engines depending on the platform. Most platforms use the Virtools engine, created Dassault Systèmes. However, the macOS and DS versions use an engine known as the Tetraedge Engine - from Tetraedge games.

The Tetraedge engine uses common data formats like ogg, png, and lua. It was also used for the macOS releases of Amerzone and Syberia 2.
