The projects most recently completed are 3D Bridge and 3D Chess. These combine competition-level AI with lush 3D environments. The advent of fast 3D hardware has made it possible to somewhat enrich the presentation of such games, way beyond what has been offered before. The goal now is to make the user feel that the game environment is real, not just a functional game interface.
AI Factory is relatively new, but already has four major titles, Bridge, Chess, Darts and Pool, on the market:
