Ürban PAD is a complete toolset for bringing diversity to game worlds, offering fast and fully editable procedural creation through automatic placement, real-time manual editing, and contextual adaptation. Production teams work in parallel to speed every part of the process from prototyping to design and production.

“Eden Games is very highly regarded for their technological expertise” said Bernard Légaut, Business Developer and General Manager of Gamr7. “They have seen that Ürban PAD offers a new way to streamline their pipeline while offering the kind of flexibility and creativity that is fundamental to their ongoing innovation.
