Abstract

Nowadays, the video gaming experience is shifting from merely realistic to believable. The increasing graphic power of current graphic cards has made it possible to render near lifelike images. Unfortunately, the behaviour of the computer driven player and non-playing characters is often poor when compared to their visual appearance. In this sense, there has been a recent interest in improving the video gaming experience with novel Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques. This paper presents a robotics inspired behavioural AI technique to simulate characters’ personalities in an multi-award winning commercial video game.
