AI for Vampire/Zombie FPS Based on Patent I found?

Recommended Posts

Would love to build a game like that described in this patent! What would be the easiest vampire/zombie games/FPS's to mod? All we would have to do is add voices and some simple AI to the vampires/zombies/NPCs. System and method for creating exalted video games and virtual realities wherein ideas have consequences: http://www.google.com/patents?id=aAuzAAAAEBAJ (Patent application) http://www.google.com/patents?id=aAuzAAAAEBAJ&pg=PA2&source=gbs_selected_pages&cad=1_1 (figures) "A video game method and system for creating games where ideas have consequences, incorporating branching paths that correspond to a player’s choices, wherein paths correspond to decisions founded upon ideals, resulting in exalted games with deeper soul and story, enhanced characters and meanings, and exalted gameplay. The classical hero’s journey may be rendered, as the journey hinges on choices pivoting on classical ideals. Ideas that are rendered in word and deed will have consequences in the gameworld. Historical events such as The American Revolution may be brought to life, as players listen to famous speeches and choose sides. As great works of literature and dramatic art center around characters rendering ideals real, both internally and externally, in word and deed, in love and war, the present invention will afford video games that exalt the classical soul, as well as the great books, classics, and epic films—past, present, and future." Found it at random, gogled it, and it is getting some buzz: http://wordsonplay.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/system-and-method-for-creating-exalted-video-games-and-virtual-realities-wherein-ideas-have-consequences/ http://www.eegra.com/pages/show/title/31_05_2009_Sunday_Sundries___quot_NPC1_becomes_vampire_communist_quot_/ http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3146757 http://progsoc.org/~curious/?p=732 Has anyone done anything like this?
