Unity announced that it has acquired technology company Ziva Dynamics.
In the original Press release Unity said that with the purchase it aims to make digital character creation tools more accessible to artists and platforms.
Ziva Dynamics was co-founded in 2015 by James Jacobs, Jernej Barbic, and Chris Godsall.
Its software has gone on to be featured in games such as Marvel’s Spider: Miles Morales, Ninja Theory’s Suna’s Saga: Hellblade II, as well films such as Godzilla vs Kong and Jumanji: The Next Level.
“Creating digital humans that meet the quality and natural dynamics needed to truly satisfy our minds can be a complicated and painful effort, requiring both expert knowledge and extreme perseverance,” said Unity.
“Ziva Dynamics is solving that problem. The Ziva team has deep expertise and understanding of complex anatomical simulation and real-time artistry tools.”
