PRESS RELEASE

Caspian Learning Unveils Powerful Web Deployment Technology
London, UK, 1st August 2010

Summary

Serious Games Design and Technology Company, Caspian Learning, today unveiled their latest technology development that will allow their award winning Thinking Worlds rapid 3D authoring tool to deploy games to the web without the need for additional 3rd party downloads.

The company behind the award-winning Thinking Worlds rapid 3D authoring tool, Caspian Learning, is proud to announce their recent breakthrough in web deployment technology that allows simulations created with Thinking Worlds to be deployed to the web not only in Shockwave, but in Java too.

The new development means that Serious Games and simulations created with Caspian Learning’s authoring tool could be deployed to the web without the need for any additional downloads or 3rd party plugins that could affect network security or require special clearance.

In their most recent Research & Development pipeline, Caspian Learning integrated Java Applet and Java Webstart deployment into core Thinking Worlds functionality. Users of the simulation authoring tool will soon be able to export games straight to the web via Java.

Lee Rushworth, Marketing Executive for Caspian Learning said that “Java technology is present in almost all of the world’s corporate and military networks. Having the ability to rapidly create and publish simulations into these secure networks without the need for additional 3rd party plugins removes another huge barrier to the widespread adoption of simulations for training and performance within these sectors.”

He went on to say that “pairing this functionality with Thinking Worlds’ existing rapid development technology will give designers even more power at their fingertips to help get simulations in front of trainees quicker and more cost-effectively than ever before.”

The company believe the recent breakthrough will reaffirm Caspian Learning’s continuing commitment to developing the world’s leading 3D serious games engine and authoring tool.

The Java deployment technology is scheduled to be integrated into Thinking Worlds during its next version release.
