Instinct Releases V2.0

March 17th 2008

Middleware provider Instinct Technology has emphasised the scope of its ambition and technical innovation with the latest release from its cross-platform game development solution Instinct Studio.

Instinct Studio version 2.0 has several new exciting features, building on its existing ground-breaking game development productivity benefits such as Remote Control which provides real time editing across platforms, as well as including a completely new and optimized graphics rendering system.

“We have a dual approach to our development as we have two target audiences, the content side of games development who spend a large portion of their working day inside the Instinct Studio tools environment, and programmers who want a clean and extensible middleware API and framework to work with which accelerates their development effort and crucially won’t put barriers up to their requirements. Whereas the earlier versions of Instinct Studio delivered primarily on the user experience, which we’ve now enhanced, the main focus this time has been optimizing the various systems across all our target platforms” says Instinct Technology’s Dermot Gallagher CTO,“This is a very significant revision and has been driven by listening to our clients and responding to technical developments in the market place”.

“The games industry has a wide variety of titles in development that range from triple AAA blockbusters to casual games” says Instinct Technology’s David Lawton COO,“We are very confident we have significantly enhanced our product set and to support this release we have introduced a range of innovative pricing models to give every level of developer a real opportunity to create fantastic games and succeed using our cutting-edge technology.”

Instinct Studio is a suite of software tools designed to allow game creators to produce state-of-the-art interactive products.

As computer and video games have become more complex and technically-demanding, game creators have come to need more efficient tools and production processes in order to meet more demanding deadlines and budgets, Instinct Studio has been designed from the ground up to satisfy these needs.

Instinct Studio features high-performance graphics coupled with powerful game creation tools, allowing a wide variety of game genres to be developed. These tools support WYSIWYG editing within a single unified working environment, maximizing productivity by reducing iteration times. The software has been designed as a true middleware API utilizing a set of extensible frameworks.

Instinct Studio is backed by world class technology, tools, documentation and support. The suite has been designed to integrate seamlessly with existing 'best in class' middleware solutionsfor specialist functionality (e.g. physics, artificial intelligence, multi-player networking etc.), allowing users to create fully-featured, state-of-the-art games for the new generation of game systems.
