Quantum Shade Interactive (QuaSI) is an indie game developer based in Sydney. As they describe themselves:
We exist to push the envelope of what’s possible in indie games – not just produce throw-away, junk titles. Our goal is to make games that introduce ideas that others will use to build on. QuaSI aims to be a prominent inspiration to people who are passionate about games; a powerhouse of creativity, punching above its weight.
They’ve just published some more information on their work in progress: Protocol E. They’re now up to public prototype number 3 and it’s developing in an interesting fashion. The attention to detail in the AI is pretty clever stuff. I find it fascinating to watch this develop and love the fact that it’s being done locally.
