Recording / Enabling Playable Social Models and PROM WEEK


PROM WEEK is an innovative AI-based social game developed by Expressive Intelligence studio and Michael Mateas, creator of Façade. The game features groundbreaking gameplay with puzzles based on emotions and traits of characters preparing for a high-school prom.

In this presentation from the Paris Game/AI Conference 2011, you’ll find out how to build simple emotional models for your characters, and how you can incorporate those into mini-games to build your gameplay around. You'll also hear about the development process that the game went through, in particular how a core AI concept can be built-upon with iterations to make a final polished game.
