Anyone remember Zork I? It’s now part of a genre called “interactive fiction.” A computer describes something to you, you type a response, you get a custom response, and off you go.
Now developer Nick Walton has created an AI version of this type of game. He’s calling it AI Dungeon 2, and the dialog is created by the AI on the fly. It’s also not fully coherent. But it’s still amazing!
My favorite exchange from The Verge article:
You can play AI Dungeon 2 yourself here [link now broken].
