Game Development

Intrinsic Algorithm's primary line of business is as an independent PC game designer.  Using the skills of Dave Mark as Lead Designer and a hand-picked team of specialized developers and artists, Intrinsic Algorithm intends to release high-quality entertainment for the PC game market.  

"... the focus of computer gaming, in the industry's attempt to promote visual and aural believability, has shifted away from intellectual believability."

Intrinsic Algorithm's focus is on "Real-time Strategy" (RTS) games and "God Games" that are balanced and lush in their detailed modeling of the worlds they are meant to represent.  Their belief is that the focus of computer gaming, in the industry's attempt to promote visual and aural believability, has shifted away from intellectual believability.  While the technology available to the developer and the player alike has increased at an exponential rate, it has been noticed - and lamented - that the AI and mathematical representations of the world have not improved at a similar rate.  It is this void in gaming that IA seeks to fill.  After all, what is the point of the on-screen behemoth that LOOKS like a diabolical monster, yet acts like a mechanical wind-up toy?

Our first title "Airline Traffic Manager" is on pace to be the most detailed, challenging, realistic airline management simulation on the market.  We are currently developing our playable demo which we hope to have released as a beta version in late 2009.

Intrinsic Algorithm also provides game design and programming services on a consulting basis. We write detailed algorithms for AI and simulation modeling as well as provide advice and work on mathematical balancing of gameplay.
