Advance Reality interactive (ARi) is an entertainment software company based in
San Anselmo, California. ARi was created to develop state-of-the-art interactive
CD-ROM titles and tools.
ARi's goal is to create titles that provide a unique and immersive entertainment
experience to the player. This is accomplished through a technological
breakthrough called the Immersion Engine. The Immersion Engine allows ARi titles
to feature seamlessly branching video with spontaneous interactivity. The system
takes video clips, mixes them with sound, allows graphics tobe overlaid, and
creates complex scripts in which multiple paths move the user from video clip to
ARi's first title is "A Fork in the Tale" published by AnyRiver
Entertainment and distributed by Electronic Arts. A Fork in the Tale is a five
CD live-action adventure game shot with a first-person perspective. Fork offers
lightning fast action, a whole cast of characters with whom the player will
interact, and a variety of challenging game-play elements. Adventure gamers are
right at home with Fork's inventive puzzles, plus new game elements including
magical gestures, defensive weapons, chase scenes, and an interactive fist fight
add a new dimension to the category.
ARi was founded in 1993 by the principle software designers of the Composium, a
state of the art special effects/editing tool currently being used in premier
post production studios throughout North America, Europe, and Japan. The
Composium advanced digital video technology won an Emmy in 1990.
