Developers Sirenum Digital wants to put fresh impulses in the world of computer games with its kickstarter campaign: the key to more gripping stories is the bond to characters – and that is best achieved with a empathetic AI that comes to the player. This is to be achieved with the PC game The Lost Pisces.
Description of the game
Similar to the mystic water creature, the new robot protagonist is also looking for the concept of an immortal soul, because the idea of temporally limited existence scares her. In contrast to the model, however, the story takes place in a highly technological world, in which figures and vehicles have all sorts of futuristic-mechanical tentacles.
Story of game
From the beginning, we understood that, to fall in love with the story, you must fall in love with her character. We are human beings … we have a connection to other human beings. Empathy, passion, heartache, jealousy … we are complex creatures. It is our way to look for such qualities and deficiencies among other people when we interact with them. So we should not create artificial intelligence … we had to grow emotional intelligence. Something that recognizes you – the player.
Like the heroine from “The Little Mermaid”, Pisces begins her journey without a soul. It is reborn into a world of emotions, dangers and personalities. This is all the more true because it begins its journey as a machine in our variant of history. As the story unfolds, she gets to know you. And you get to know her. This is what makes a good story … one in which you create a deep connection to the character. This is what you remember.
She remembers moments and pictures of her adventures with you. Images create neural paths that produce sequences that are known to us as memories. Based on negative or positive results, these memories become a method of learning about the world and the person most important to Pisces: you, the player.
