Ugh, stop twitching

coding Posted 2005-12-30 01:11:35 by Jim Crawford
Remember Chris Crawford's essay about using social reasoning in games to attract female players? Remember when I asked how one could implement social reasoning problems in software? Well, obviously I wasn't thinking about the personal project Chris Crawford had been working on for the past 13 years: a program called the Erasmatron, which builds stories interactively by simulating a social environment. I'd known about this project forever and pretty much ignored it as a pipe dream, as has most of the world. Looking at the software, it's impressively robust -- as it should be, after 13 years -- but the stories it tells are still pretty fuckin' boring.

He still thinks he can make it work. His wife thinks it's doomed to failure and is sick of supporting him.

I wish I had half of his perseverance.
