AI Navigation for Games

Mercuna is the premier AI navigation middleware for AAA games. Used in games such as Hogwarts Legacy, Gotham Knights, and Dune: Awakening, Mercuna is the first choice for studios when they need advanced navigation capabilities and support for non-humanoid AI.
Offering a complete navigation solution for characters, animals, and vehicles whether they walk, drive, swim, or fly, Mercuna allows you to navigate any kind of AI in any kind of environment.

Ground Navigation

Mercuna Ground Navigation is an advanced 2D ground based navigation solution for AI characters, vehicles and animals. It allows you to drop people, cars, motorbikes, tanks, horses or dinosaurs into your game levels and have them seamlessly walk and drive around virtual worlds. Designed to handle all types of terrain the Mercuna Ground Navigation middleware provides pathfinding, steering and avoidance for both humanoid and non-humanoid AI. For turn-rate limited AI such as cars and animals, Mercuna uses kinematic pathfinding to generate smooth, natural looking paths, that avoid agents getting stuck or trying to make unrealistic turns.

3D Navigation

Mercuna 3D Navigation offers powerful 3D navigation that allows flying and swimming characters, creatures and vehicles to find their way through complex environments. Whether you want to fly a spaceship through an asteroid field, chase the hero with a dragon, or thread a submarine through a winding cave, Mercuna is suitable for games of any size or genre, from AAAs to indies, and RPGs to space sims. Advanced 3D pathfinding, flexible steering options and seamless dynamic obstacle avoidance are among the simple yet powerful tools Mercuna delivers for building sophisticated and interesting AI.
