I’ve created a very short game for the upcoming SubQ interactive fiction contest and figured I’d run it through the forums before I hastily shove it through the submission page.
In A.I. Love You, you take on the role of an artificial intelligence system in charge of a small apartment with a single occupant in the near future. The AI’s way of interacting with the world is very restrained, and the mechanics and story are meant to take advantage of that.
You can play the full game here: https://dashingdon.com/play/will/ai-love-you/mygame/
You can also, if you’d like, play the “cut” version that reduces the wordcount significantly so it better aligns with the requirements of the SubQ contest: https://dashingdon.com/play/will/ai-love-you-cut-version/mygame/. I consider the original version to be the “true” version but this one uses its limitations to emphasise the difficulty of human-computer interaction in a way the original version doesn’t do.
I’ve also created a short survey about the game: https://goo.gl/forms/gnBeacv1thmhVeO52. No obligation to fill it out, but it would help me a lot!
Let me know if you find any typos, bugs, mistakes, or anything else that I desperately need to fix.
Thanks so much!
I hope you enjoy it.
