Delivering High-End Games To Mainstream Audiences

A session at Casual Connect Seattle 2011

Tuesday 19th July, 2011

9:00am to 9:30am (PST)

In 2001, Torsten brought his research in biomechanics and kinetics to the movie industry revolutionizing realistic and immersive character interaction on the big screen. We are certain that you have seen Torsten’s work in movies such as the Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, Troy and Poseidon where computer animation of human and animal avatars gave rise to breathtakingly real sequences in the virtual world.

Torsten has proven through his success in using neural networks and artificial evolution applied to self-animating characters that using organic models with bones, muscles and a nervous system results in realism not achieved by other methods.

As increasingly powerful platforms have brought a multitude of gaming experiences to the mainstream entertainment audience, many of these experiences lack a depth and richness factor that truly engage players. Those days are gone as NaturalMotion has brought life to games including Grand Theft Auto IV, Red Dead Redemption and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
