R&D Techniques of selling AI game

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

So I have an AI game in mind and I was wondering what are the best ways or techniques to sell my idea of my prototype and proof of concept. Should I make a trailer? Should make a magazine style book? Should I make a video in talking about my game like they do in Kickstarter campaigns? Any feedback would be highly appreciated!

Are you trying to sell your idea to possible developers?

Yea, developers and like lets say I do crowdsourcing, so for that reason as well.

Hmm, ok.  If you want to sell an idea to a developer or publisher, I'd say there's no real chance of that.

If you want to crowdsource an idea to get money to make the game, again I'd say there's no chance unless you're a very well known and successful designer with many games to your name.  However if that was the case, I dont think you'd be here asking this question.  No offense.

If you're working on a game prototype and want to get funding from a publisher or crowd source the funding... that's a bit more doable (as opposed to just an idea) but it's still a very unlikely situation unless the prototype is pretty awesome.

      Animating characters is a pain, right? Especially those four-legged monsters!

      This year, we will be presenting our recent research on quadruped animation and character control at the SIGGRAPH 2018 in Vancouver. The system can produce natural animations from real motion data using artificial neural networks. Our system is implemented in the Unity 3D engine and trained with TensorFlow.

      If you are curious about such things, have a look at this:

      I am about to start a PhD that will investigate ways of replicating creativity in the AI systems of simulated people in virtual environments. I will research which psychology theories and models to use in order to achieve this, with a focus on creative problem solving.
      The aim of this project is to create virtual characters and NPCs that can create new solutions to challenges, even if they have never encountered these before. This would mean that not every possible action or outcome would need to be coded for, so less development resources are required. Players would encounter virtual people that are not bound by rigid patterns of pre-scripted behaviour, increasing the replay value and lifespan of games, and the accuracy of simulations.
      I am looking for companies or organisations that would be interested in working with me on my PhD, and I think computer games companies might be the most likely. I am trying to think of ways in which this new AI system might benefit games companies, or improvements and new types of games that might be possible. I am on this forum to ask for your thoughts and suggestions please, so I can approach games companies with some examples. 
      Thank you for your time and interest.

      Please help in completing the code. I am unable to use defined function
      import sys
      import nltk
      import random
      from nltk.tokenize import word_tokenize,sent_tokenize
      GREETING_KEYWORDS = ("hello", "hi", "greetings", "sup", "what's up",)
      GREETING_RESPONSES = ["'sup bro", "hey", "*nods*", "hey you get my snap?"]
      User_input = input ("User said:")
      type (User_input)
      def check_for_greeting(sentence):
          """If any of the words in the user's input was a greeting, return a greeting response"""
          words = word_tokenize (sentence)
          if words in GREETING_KEYWORDS:
      check_for_greeting(sentence = User_input )

      Hello gamedev, I am currently evaluating the worthiness of jumping into RD work for an automatic impostor system in our engine. In the past I've witnessed tremendous performance increase from such a system into the engine of LumenRT (which has to cope with unoptimized user created content). We're a little bit in the same situation right now. Possibly large fields with way too much data (high poly etc..).
      So if the engine would support auto-impostor-ing of stuff that'd be cool. Though, to make it a bit more modern, I was thinking that we could extend the parallax validity of billboards by storing the depth too, and render them using parallax occlusion mapping.
      So the invalidation could come after the camera has moved to a more radical angle than for traditional impostors. These exist techniques with full volumetric billboards that I am aware of, but they need the gometry shader to generate slices, and cost heavy voxel storage. I need something very light on the bandwidth to cope with switch/PS4 limitations.
      Can you point me to modern research on well balanced imposter techniques sounding like this ? or any idea you have on the matter.

      If you have CROWDFUNDED the development of your game, which of the following statements do you agree with?
      1. I went out of my way to try to launch my game by the estimated delivery date
      2. I made an effort to launch my game by the estimated delivery date
      3. I was not at all concerned about launching my game by the estimated delivery date
      Hi there! I am an academician doing research on both funding success and video game development success.
      For those who have CROWDFUNDED your game development, it would be extremely helpful if you could fill out a very short survey (click the Qualtrics link below) about your experiences.
      The survey would just take 5 minutes and I’ll be happy to share my findings of what leads to crowdfunding success and how it affects game development based on an examination of 350 Kickstarter projects on game development in return.
      This is an anonymous survey and your personal information will not be recorded.
      Thank you very much in advance!
