I don’t know, if many of you been following Everquest Next, but over a year ago I found out about Storybricks.These storybricks give npcs wants and needs that cause them to interact with every other npc and player differently. The npcs will have multiple goals, and have many ,easily transferable, options that will be based on many factors including mood, motivation, allegiances, etc.
Storybricks are the future of Video Game A.I. that react in a realistic way towards it’s environment without each individual action being programmed. Worlds will become emergent, and if you destroy a village the survivors will flee to other towns, or try to rebuild the ruined town. Permanent change will come to the world, and you won’t get the same quests as the other players.
