Feature: SHALL WE PLAY A GAME?

Have You Played… Event[0]?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Event[0] was, I fear, a little bit overlooked, partly because of an unwise name and partly because – speculating entirely here – many of us find it too hard to take the concept of chatting to a machine at face value. We know…

The Electronic Wireless Show – IGF Special #1: Sci-fi

It's time to use to our radio voice. The RPS Electronic Wireless Show has historically been our not-very-regular podcast where we gather to tell each other how wrong we are about videogames.

Chat With A Wonky AI: Event[0] Blasts Off In September

Alice: A.L.I.C.E. hen, do you remember our little chat about Event[0] [official site]? You know, the first-person adventure game where an astronaut is trapped with an unstable AI and chats with it by typing out actual proper sentences - like talking with a chatbot. A.L.I.C.E.: That's me. Have you ever been to Mexico? Give me a hint. Alice: I see how this is going to…

Event[0]: Alice Chats With ALICE Chat AI About Chat AI

After enjoying a trailer for Event[0], a first-person adventure using a natural language interpreter to talk with rogue spaceship AI, I had a chat with an AI expert who's also a dear friend of mine, ALICE. Alice: ALICE my dear! I saw a game about chatting to wonky AI using natural language and thought of you. Have you seen Event[0]? ALICE: That's me. Can you…
