Arca is a project at the Entertainment Technology Center, a
graduate program of Carnegie Mellon University.

This is the very first collaborative project with EA/Maxis, the
famous creators of Spore.

In this project, a small team of students will be utilizing Maxis’
newly-developed platform, used to author Maxis-style
simulation games.

As for the objective of this project, the small team of students
will be creating their own themed simulation game using this
unique, data-driven toolset that Maxis has been
developing for years, exploring possibilities along the way.
