Serious Games Technology Co Cuts Cost of 3D Development With New Launch

Rapidly creating 3d performance simulations and Serious Games


London, UK, 16th April 2010


Award-winning simulation technology company, Caspian Learning, continues to reduce the development costs of 3d simulations for training, performance and engagement with the release of a new version of its Thinking Worlds rapid 3d authoring tool.

Caspian Learning, the UK-based 3d simulation technology company, today announced the release of the latest version of its award-winning 3d authoring tool Thinking Worlds.

The proprietary software technology allows designers to rapidly create 3d performance simulations and Serious Games.

The new additions to Thinking Worlds 3.3 include the ability to integrate files created in Adobe’s Flash effortlessly into 3d environments and publish them directly to the Internet. This will enable faster development and subsequently lowers the development costs of immersive simulations for designers.

The latest additions make the creation of immersive 3d learning and performance simulations even more cost effective than previous versions of the software.

Lee Rushworth, Marketing Executive for Caspian Learning, described the new release as “another round of exciting benefits that give instructional designers even more rapid authoring capability at their disposal”.

He added: “It’s our hope that with each new release, we make it easier for content developers to create simulations more efficiently and more cost effectively and that is exactly what we believe Thinking Worlds 3.3 has achieved.”

After using Thinking Worlds to create a quick 10-minute fully immersive simulation, Gustavo Sanabria, Managing Director of innovative simulation design company, IGS, said: “It was very fast to develop indeed. If we had to build it again, it would take us no more than 15/20 hours.’

As part of Caspian Learning’s drive to make the creation of 3d performance simulations and Serious Games more accessible to traditional learning and development providers, they have made a free trial of the software available to download directly from its website.
