We had to develop an A.I. able to cope with extremely interactive worlds and gameplay”, said David Nadal, Studio Manager at Eden Games. “We could not start with what we had developed previously: next generation games need next generation A.I. Kynapse provided us this next generation A.I. It was quickly and smoothly integrated in our production chain and was a significant relief for our team. We now have an A.I. solution that fits our ambition for the Alone in the Dark massive global franchise.”

Pierre Pontevia, Kynogon CEO explains, "when I first saw the astonishing Alone in the Dark demo, I understood how ambitious the game was. Alone in the dark is again going to be a reference and we are proud at Kynogon to be part of this effort”.
