Middleware firm Kynogon has announced that its AI middleware solution Kynapse has been licensed by developer Artificial Studios for the upcoming physics-heavy action title Cell Factor: Revolution. Kynapse 4.0, the software's latest version, includes specific features for next-generation platforms, including hierarchical 3D pathfinding compatible with streaming mechanisms, 3D dynamic pathfinding for full physics games, automatic 3D perception and pathfinding data generation supporting very large maps, 3D topology dynamic analysis, team coordination mechanisms, and AI architecture with high level performance. Cell Factor: Revolution is a first-person shooter for the PC that was first shown at GDC in 2006, and then later at E3 in May. The game affords players a fully destructible environment thanks to physics supported by Ageia's PhysX chip. “Cell Factor uses the Ageia's physics engine to empower a very dynamic world, with thousands of destructible objects,” explained Artificial Studios's CEO Jeremy Stieglitz. “Advanced physics need advanced AI. Destructible worlds, where the terrain is constantly changing, present one of the major challenges for Artificial Intelligence.” He added: “As the terrain keeps changing, 3D pathfinding and 3D topology analysis become extremely complex. We needed an AI solution that would perform as credibly as Ageia does for the physics. Kynapse was the only real choice, no other AI solution can handle such an environment.”
