Abstract: This report describes the development project of an author centric procedural content generation tool for videogames. The approach underlying this tool is to provide human designers access to the capabilities of procedural content generation techniques, whilst simultaneously a ording them as much creative control over the creative process as possible. The goal of this project was to nish designing and developing the tool and its procedural generation approach, and test it in a design scenario. To achieve this, three di erent tasks were carried out: rst, a new game prototype was integrated into the procedural generation engine architecture; second, a user interface was implemented in a web server to allow designers' to use the tool; and nally, the tool was tested and evaluated. The report describes the development process, the design and architecture of the tool, as well as all tests that were done. Usability test results show that the tool is in a usable state and preliminary data from a designer case study highlights the tool's potential.
