NGD Studios is a game development company located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They started as a three group fusion and were the creators of an acclaimed game for a construction kit toy called Mis Ladrillos, which is similar to Lego toys.

They later created a mobile gaming division. Making games for known brands like Axe and doing development for the multinational GlobalFun.

After some successful games, GlobalFun acquired the mobile division from NGD Studios.

They are currently continuing development of a real-time, 3D massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) which emphasizes flexible gameplay and dynamic content. The game is called Regnum Online and it has been in development for more than 5 years before its release in the first quarter, 2007.

The game was intended for the Spanish speaking market at the beginning but then improved enough to be targeted for other zones as well.

The game currently officially supports English, Spanish, German and Dutch but they have stated plans to open the translation tools so volunteers can incorporate other languages.

The game uses a proprietary engine called NG3D which was built from scratch with Massive Multiplayer games in mind. It supports a variety of features found in today's engines, such as hardware shaders support, continuous world loading, asynchronous resource management and a flexible gameplay system.

Regnum Online was officially released on May 24th, 2007. Any information about future expansions and features have been not disclosed yet.

There are some unnofficial rumours obtained from the official Regnum Online forums, that claim that NGD Studios is working on a new iteration of the NG3D engine, specially tailored for multi-platform and next-gen games.
