March 2023:

Our chess program still holds a commanding position in the app store with over 100m downloads. However, even after some 13 years in charts, there are always ways to improve it.

The existing product optionally marked endangered pieces but did not prevent me from moving a piece needed to defend another piece or ensure that it occupied a safe square.

We have implemented two optional levels of safety checks for piece movement. Level 1 checks whether a piece can safely enter a square, while Level 2 checks whether moving the piece may cause a loss on another part of the board.

This update provides a “safe” casual mode of play and serves as a valuable teaching tool.

AI Factory's core activity is the development of traditional and casual games created around quality AI game engines, with an easy-to-use and feature-rich interface, including a high level of characterisation. We have developed complete game software on PC, console and mobile.
Alongside quality 2D games, AI Factory has created lavish 3D versions of a selection of classic games, bringing traditional games up-to-date with other genres in the games industry.
We have state-of-the-art AI game engines for an ever-growing range of casual games, including traditional board games, and parlour pastimes from East and West (chess, bridge, backgammon, reversi, shogi, chinese chess, chinese checkers, go, amazons, checkers, four in a line, gomoku and many more), classic card games (bridge, poker, hearts, spades and euchre), puzzles (taipei, dominoes, treasure hunt and others) and life-simulations (including darts, pool, snooker and football).
Many of these game names are instantly recognisable brands, as well as sitting firmly in the casual games genre, currently a fast growing gaming market.
