Sundays are for sunshine pouring in through the window. I am so looking forward to summer this year. To pass the time I've been reading the internet. Here's some of the stuff I found.
  • Here's an article about games that are not just for computers, but by computers: 'Angelina uses computational evolution techniques to search design spaces for playable games. Using a fairly simple design language, Cook specifies certain parameters such as layout constraints and rule-set variations ' effectively defining a genre. Angelina iterates through a vast number of semi-random permutations of these, where each permutation is a potential new game. The evolutionary aspect of the process comes in when the system selects the better candidates of each iteration ' or generation ' and combines them to form the seeds of the next. But in Angelina's case, there are two phases to the process. First, selecting the component game-parts ' layout, mechanics ' and secondly; picking a playable integration of these. Cook refers to this as 'cooperative co-evolution'.' (moreā?¦)
