Android games to get a boost thanks to latest NDK

The Google sponsored Game Developers Conference starts tomorrow and we are expecting some major Android announcements. In anticipation for tomorrow, Google has updated the Android NDK (r3) so applications can now directly access OpenGL ES 2.0 features. To put it simply, developers have greater control to program for the hardware and can create more robust games (Watch for Mike Leahy’s thesis paper in the comments).

My prediction for tomorrow: Epic games unveils the new Unreal Engine for Android (see Tim Sweeney’s comments).
