Invited Talk: Rule Systems and Video Games

  • Rod Humble
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4133)


In this talk I will examine the different kinds of rule systems which have been used historically within games. I will then explore the emerging field of self modifying rule systems within computer games. In conclusion I will cover various techniques which maybe applied and how games relating to everyday life such as The Sims can benefit from such systems.
