For those bashing EA..... Any old-schooler will tell ya, EA is not some great company. Yeah, they've released some great games, but the bottom line is they're the fabled 'corporate giant' out to make money and eliminate competitors. Been that way since the early 80's. Another victim of EA you might have heard of, the Wing Commander series (Privateer as well). If they can't rush out better games than you, they'll buy you out and kill your franchise.

PlatinumGames and Microsoft Use IKinema for Scalebound
19 August, 2015

IKinema, a leader in real-time inverse Kinematics announced that PlatinumGames‘ title Scalebound, is the first game to benefit from a master license agreement between IKinema and Microsoft.

The master license agreement includes other studios within Microsofts groups. Already a second studio has been added to the arrangement and there are to be more expected in the near future.

IKinema’s RunTime true, full-body IK technology gives high-caliber realism and fluidity to the animation during the game play. Scalebound is a game that is full of scary creatures and humongous dragons. It will be integrated with Epic Game’s Unreal Engine 4.

IKinema’s animation tools are helping us bring the dragons and creatures of Scalebound to life. The tools integration with Unreal Engine 4 has allowed us to quickly bring a heightened sense of reality to the epic battles in the game

Jean Pierre Kellams, Creative Producer, Platinum Games


IKinema’s founder and CEO Alexandre Pechev was quoted saying that the company’s ability is in bringing procedural animation to games by assisting in the adaptation of assets in-game while maintaining the trueness of the original assets created by the artist.

RunTime also allows studios to precedurally and freely animate characters in the game, which allows for a more natural and realistic movement of the creatures. The same code can be used for mobile and AAA titles by developers for the technology.

Some notable companies that use IKinema RunTime: Microsoft, PlatinumGames, Framestore, The Foundry, Vicon, Arkane Studios, Square Enix, Valve, intel, Technicolor, and more.
