Cyber Threat Defender is based on the Cyber Security Layers simulation model, but tuned for a wide audience for marketing, communication, and training. Scenarios can be played out on mobile, web, and tablet platforms. Users can quickly test the comparative value of products, services, and configurations. Quickly evaluate the risks that IT systems are subjected to while navigating specific infrastructure challenges like acquisitions, rapid expansion, block chain adoption, and re-architecture. Integrate with cloud services, like IBM Bluemix, to see your IT infrastructure directly in the game. Or evaluate the benefits of an IBM z Systems Mainframe on your organization.

When your first-line defenses fail, will your entire organization be resilient?

Achron, launched in August of 2011, is the world’s first meta-time strategy game, a real-time strategy game where all players can travel through time. You can jump around the timeline, send your forces back in time, and undo ruses, and create grandfather paradoxes. Gamespot awarded it the 2011 Best Original Game Mechanic, Editor’s Choice Award.

zTime (Danger Noodles!), coming in 2017, creates a visualization of the passage of time, drawing and updating the future paths and collisions of the player and environment objects.  Having visual confirmation and certainty of future interactions which otherwise would rely on intuition gives players a feeling of having precognition and the ability to find windows of opportunity in seemingly impossible situations.

It’s one of the most unique and original games that I’ve come across lately for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.  It ingeniously takes advantage of the 3D space to project the future paths of the main character and the enemies in a way that I’ve never seen before..”
