Cryware?  Do you mean CryEngine from Crytek?

i think he means CriWare,  I think companies use em for like creating some assets and improving engine specific stuff, they are not actually a game engine themselves.  I guess they help with production in some games to speed things up.  After looking at their website, it seems they do alot of audio and video encoding for games.

Yea, it's CRIware.  I see that logo all the time, thousands of games use it.
It includes a sound codec, a video codec, file management system, and all sorts of developer tools.

Thanks i made a crazy assumption thinking that it was the crysis engine, which was wrong.  I had a hell of a time finding anything online about them.  Thanks for the info.
