Kynogon has announced that Eden Games, one of Atari’s leading studios and the original developers of the V-Rally
series, as well as the current developers of Test Drive Unlimited
, has selected Kynapse 4.0 to develop its next generation game A.I.
"We have been following Kynogon for more than 2 years now and it is clear to us that Kynogon has succeeded in researching and designing an exhaustive, robust and efficient integrated A.I. solution,” said David Nadal, Eden’s Chief Technical Officer.
