Serious game firm uses tech for Hilton training game

Virtual Heroes picks Vicious Engine

Serious games firm Virtual Heroes has used Vicious Cycle’s Vicious Engine on ‘HGI Ultimate Team Play’, its project for Hilton Garden Inns.

The training programme launched across all Hilton Garden Inn hotels worldwide in February this year, and simulates various roles – from housekeeping, food, engineering and maintenance – giving employees the opportunity to decide the right course of action in various situations to best serve hotel guests.

“We chose Vicious Engine primarily for its straightforward platform conversion onto PSP,” said Jerry Heneghan, Virtual Heroes founder and CEO.

“When combined with the engine’s full-featured technology and ability to render a highly detailed in-game environment, it was an easy choice for this project.”

Eric Peterson, president and CEO of Vicious Cycle Software, added: “We are amazed with what Virtual Heroes is doing to create effective learning tools for the corporate world. Vicious Engine offers the power and flexibility necessary for rapidly prototyping a fully platform-compliant product, an ideal solution for Ultimate Team Play.”
