Euphoria is a game development engine known for its sophisticated animation and artificial intelligence systems. It uses dynamic motion synthesis, allowing characters to move with more realism by reacting differently to a variety of situations. Unlike traditional animation engines that use pre-canned animations, Euphoria's AI-driven movements are generated on the fly in response to environmental changes, making interactions within games more unpredictable and immersive. The engine was developed by NaturalMotion and has been used in titles such as Grand Theft Auto IV, Red Dead Redemption, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Assassin's Creed III.
