Stottler Henke is pleased to support the Serious Games Showcase and Challenge held at the 2006 I/ITSEC Conference by making the SimBionic®; and SimVentive™ game development tools available to Serious Games contestants at no charge. We hope that the availability of these tools will enable contestants to implement their game concepts more quickly and easily, so they can focus more of their energies towards innovative game design.
The SimVentive™ system provides all the tools you need to quickly create complete, Java-based training games. SimVentive enables rapid authoring of the user interface by providing a collection of powerful GUI widgets and a drag-and-drop GUI editor. Game designers can rapidly specify intelligent behaviors using the built-in SimBionic® intelligent agent toolkit.
SimVentive is an innovative software suite that changes the simulation development process. Using the SimVentive Scenario Editor, you can rapidly construct a simulation scenario without programming. Scenarios can be played by the SimVentive Scenario Player, running as a Java application or as an applet to support both classroom instruction and distance learning.

The SimBionic® intelligent agent toolkit enables rapid authoring of intelligent behaviors that can control non-player characters and simulated entities. The SimBionic run-time system provides C++ and Java application programming interfaces that enable you to integrate it with your favorite game engine or simulation.
SimBionic is a full-featured visual development environment including editor, debugger, and runtime engine. Its highly intuitive visual approach lets you to see your game’s logic at a glance, and quickly spot potential bugs or other difficulties. The visuals also make it a snap for you to show and discuss your work with other members of your development team, including designers and artists with no programming background. When you’re ready to try out your work, you can compile your game AI with a single mouse click and generate a thin interface for hooking your game AI to your game’s engine.. You can then test your AI using SimBionic’s interactive debugger, which will load the run-time environment and execute your code step by step, helping you to uncover and fix any subtle problems.
SimBionic received a Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Award in 2004 for it ease-of-use and ability to create training simulations that provide students with complex, realistic, and engaging learning experiences.
