Atari's Lyon-based internal studio Eden Games has integrated Gamr7's procedural city generator, Urban PAD, into its Eden's Garden development pipeline, the two companies announced today.
Garden is a production pipeline intended for use with MMOs on current and upcoming consoles, and the company says such games rely heavily on the sort of auto-generated content that Urban PAD provides.
Eden and Gamr7 are working together as co-developers on the integration. Urban PAD promises editable procedural creation through automatic placement, real-time manual editing, and contextual adaptation, and is designed so that production teams can work in parallel from prototyping to production.
"Eden Games is very highly regarded for their technological expertise," says Gamr7 business developer and general manager Bernard Legaut. "Urban PAD is a logical evolution in their production process as they are preparing for the upcoming console generation. We are very proud that they have selected our technology for their next pipeline."
