From broken parts to broken hearts - mend robots in AI Confidential

By - | Views: 23,083

Critical Wit recently revealed AI Confidential, a game where you take on the role of a RoboTechnician employed by AI megacorp where you'll be fixing up all sorts of strange robots as you fix up broken parts to broken hearts.

Given the rise of AI, and robots slowly taking actual jobs, this seems like quite a fitting game for the time. They're made to solve our problems, but it's our job to fix them. A never-ending cycle huh? At least technicians will never be out of a job.

They've released a first trailer which you can see below:

  • A unique, playful and intuitive emoji-driven dialog system.
  • An unforgettable cast of purpose-built patients to meet and help.
  • An array of environments in a solarpunk future to explore.
  • Classic adventure game inventory puzzles… minus the moon logic.
  • From hardware repair, to virus removal, assist your patients with invasive aplomb.
  • Decommission ‘lost causes,’ and return their cores to R&D.

More about it:

Robotic Rehabilitation in Four ‘Simple’ Steps

Step 1: The Owner, the Bot, & the Boss (Case Briefing)
Meet your purpose-built patient to get their perspective. Get marching orders from HQ, and a hot take from the broken bot’s owner.

Step 2: Solarpunk Sleuthing (Explore & Investigate)
Uncover possible causes of malfunctions and misbehavior. Chat with other AI in the area for clues and leads.

Step 3: Subjective Solutions (Diagnosis & Treatment)
Determine a diagnosis, and evaluate a possible treatment... or three. Execute the “best” option, or consider doing something… unsanctioned.

Step 4: Rocks and Hard Places (Metanarrative Mindfulness)
What’s best for the patient isn’t always what the customer or your company wants. Your decisions dictate the fates of your patients, relationships... and career.

One of the developers working on it mentioned on Mastodon how it will have Native Linux support, and is even a first-class citizen when it comes to platform support. Looks to be worth a follow.

You can follow it along on Steam.
