The first ever Discworld app, and the first ever living, breathing map of an entire fantasy city.

I created the Artificial Intelligence engine for the official Discworld app, developed in partnership with Terry Pratchett and Transworld Publishers. This involved building a complete map of an entire fictional city for citizens to navigate, and creating a custom behaviour engine to control their movement around the streets.
