A little known project by the Xona Games' authors, is eScape -- once hidden under the name Project X.

I just stumbled upon some early development videos and decided to post them.


eScape Description:

eScape was a unique project. It was a fully automated artificial intelligence artist, that played the role of the graphics tool and the graphics artist -- the only graphics artist -- in the creation of its art. It was not based on neural networks however, and cannot be compared to the amazing creativity found without the advancements that are happening today. It featured fully solid 3D textures and other effects that are beyond modern-day 3D accelerated graphics cards (GPUs).
