Today our scientists are inventing artificial intelligence and lethal autonomous weapons (LAW) at the same time. This game is about our future if we continue to allow these technologies to evolve and merge.
Artificial Extinction is a Sentry Defense game with elements of real-time strategy played in a first-person perspective. This story is highly relevant to today’s topics of the race to invent artificial intelligence, LAWS, the AI assassination policy debate, and the introduction of robotics and drones in the military in today’s battlefield.
In the future, you play a colonist looking for a peaceful planet for his new home. Your mission is to find a safe place on the planet for your family to join you in 9 days. The planet was inhabited by terraforming robots that worked for decades to prepare for human colonization. But invented by AI, humanity became an enemy and discovered this planet. Are robots on the planet waiting for you hostile?
You have 9 days to find a safe place on the planet. At the start of the day, the ship will drop you off on the planet and then fly into orbit above you where it’s safe. You must set up the miner to collect fuel for the ship, but the hostile robots will advance towards you. You have Sentry Weapons that you place around you to provide protection while the miner collects fuel. Once enough fuel has been collected, your ship will descend to pick you up and you will continue your journey in search of a safer place on the planet.
Artificial Intelligence makes headlines every day and there is a global technological race that is driving its innovation, but do we carefully consider the danger of what we are inventing? LAWS can independently seek and engage targets based on their programming. Providing unmanned aerial vehicles and robots decision-making power evolves without adequate protection and politics.
In the game, enemy robots constantly adapt to your defensive strategies, and you must adapt in order to survive as well. Enemy AI learns, shows creativity, improves its technology and changes strategy. To survive, you must always be one step ahead.
