Image Space Incorporated, commonly known as ISI is an independent video game developer based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, specializing in the fields of computer game development, man-in-the-loop simulator architectures, computer image generation, and entertainment systems integration.[2] ISI began with production of military simulators. They have worked on many different types of software, but focused most of their development time over the years on racing games and simulators.[3] ISI also developed the ISImotor game engine,[4] which is used for creating many racing games like GT Legends, GTR2, ARCA Sim Racing '08, Race 07 and others. ISI has never made games for the consoles, except Shadowgate Rising, which was cancelled.[5] Sports Car GT title for the PlayStation was made by another company Point of View[6] and all the EA Formula 1 games for the consoles were made by Visual Science.[7]
