A while back, MikeB and I discussed Storybricks, software created by Namaste Entertainment that allows people to easily create AI and story within a game environment. The software was designed with “build-an-MMO” applications in mind.
As a result Namaste has announced that Storybricks and Kingdom of Default are to be shelved.
It’s not all bad news, however. Due to having learned quite a bit while working on the project, Namaste is now able to bring their knowledge to help other companies create better in-game interactivity and AI.
As gamers who have spent a lot of time interacting with NPC’s , I’m sure we can all appreciate any efforts to improve games on that front.
