As the technical possibilities of artificial intelligence advance, their areas of application are also constantly increasing. For example, a eSports hotel in China monitored by an AI. But the technology is also used in other areas of the gaming industry. So now a game has appeared on Steam that was created entirely by an AI. The problem: The title is absolutely terrible. Find out here what it’s all about and what the developers say about the negative reviews.
AI game on Steam is terrible
This Girl Doesn’t Exist was released on September 8th on Steam and was completely transformed from gameplay to story to graphics by a artificial intelligence developed. Even the dubbing voices are not man-made. This is a very simple puzzle gamein which you put the same pictures of girls together over and over again.
You deepen your knowledge with each additional puzzle romantic relationship with the respective person and get to know them better, at least they claim Steam page. The title currently only has one review. It is negative and not at all convinced of the game concept.
That’s what the developers say about their game
This Girl Does Not Exist was developed by a married couple kotaku managed to talk to one of the developers. The programmer named “mrspotatoes”talks about the challenges of creating an AI game.
Creating the corresponding graphics in particular was more difficult than expected. While they didn’t have to start from scratch, which saved a lot of time, the title needed female characters that the player could “fall in love” with. So they had to have artificial intelligence create characters over and over again until they were satisfied.
The couple sent 250 creators a free copy of the game, but very few snapped. However, their criticism was always negative. Especially the fact that the game was created by an AI worried many. Mrspotatoes, on the other hand, perceives their game as “Revolution”, which shows the possibilities of modern technology. In the future, however, the couple only wants to use AI as support instead of giving up the process completely.
“If I were to develop a full AI game again”the developer muses. “Then I would just tell people at the very end that it was made by an AI and see how they would react because I think people were prejudiced against This Girl from the start.”
