Total Immersion Software is the creator of RealWorld, the revolutionary PC-based platform that enables non-programmers to rapidly build 2D/3D, geo-specific simulations. Our tools are especially valuable for time-critical applications where lives are on the line – first responders, counter-terrorism professionals, war-fighters, healthcare workers, the intelligence community, and security forces. The Austin Studio of Total Immersion Software (TIS) was founded early in 2007 to spearhead the development of the RealWorld technology platform for the Defense advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
While other companies are working safely within the realms of fantasy, we are working deeply within the cutting edge, real world experiences that have inspired games like Splinter Cell and Call of Duty. We capture the best aspects of game development without falling victim to the non-stop crushing deadlines one finds in traditional gaming companies. We are well-funded, offer Fortune-500 caliber benefits, and value and encourage creativity, innovation and collaboration, while empowering our people to strongly influence the company’s destiny, as well as their own.
