Submission + - Can we create fun games automatically? (blogspot.com) 1

togelius writes: "What makes games fun? Some (e.g. Raph Koster) claim that is fun is learning — fun games are those which are easy to learn, but hard to master, with a long and smooth learning curve. I think we can create fun game rules automatically through measuring their learnability. In a recent experiment we do this using evolutionary computation, and create some simple Pacman-like new games completely without human intervention! Maybe this is the future for game design? (Blog post, paper)."

Can we create fun games automatically?

  • AI, I can believe will approach human intelligence some day. My guess is that we'd need that first and we'd eventually we'd get the sort of creativity that goes into making art. Until then, I doubt an automatic process will be able to create games near as good as most created by humans.
