Artificial intelligence technology has come a long way in recent years. In fact, we’re rapidly approaching the point where what was once only depicted in science fiction books and movies will instead be… reality. Our reality. Oh, and what better way to further explore that exciting field than with a second AI and Games Jam?
As the name implies, AI and Games Jam 2022 is a game jam that implements some kind/level of AI, “be it for decision making, pathfinding, character behaviour, player modelling, level generation, animation, you name it”. Do keep in mind, however, that entries are not judged based on AI complexity, as originality, presentation, and fun are instead favored for this aspect of the jam.
Solo or team? Engine restrictions? Discord? Both er valid, anything goes (although do make sure to have at least one build for modern Windows or web browsers), and right here. The theme will be announced at the start of the jam, as is the norm for these things, and… oh, right. One rather important aspect that must not be ignored, regarding your entry: “must not contain nudity, inappropriate and hateful imagery or foul language”.
There are a handful of other rules and tidbits of importance, so be sure to check the website ahead of time. Sure, AI and Games Jam 2022 doesn’t start for another 25 days and change, but better safe than sorry. Especially when AI is involved.
