Description

Mercuna is an independent software development company co-founded by Ben Lowing and Michael Bell. Mercuna develops and licenses advanced AI navigation middleware to game developers.

History

The company was founded in 2016 with the aim to provide games studios with powerful, but easy to use tools, letting developers focus on creating the games they want and not having to waste time building the underlying tech.

Mercuna 3D Navigation, the company’s first product, was released in 2018, and allows games to add flying and swimming AI that can navigate around complex 3D environments. It is a complete 3D navigation system that handles pathfinding, steering, movement and dynamic obstacle avoidance.

Mercuna is currently developing a new innovative off-road navigation middleware for AI vehicles and animals in games. Vehicles and animals are usually limited in their accelerations and turn-rates and as a result require a more complicated method of pathfinding than the standard one used for characters. The development of this project is supported by an Epic Games MegaGrant.
