AI Bots path finding and amazing fan art by Kristina Toxicpanda!
We’ve been working on AI in the past few days. We managed to implement path finding by using A* with a bunch of other tweaks in order to get it to be able to maneuver through the level. Right now we have an AI Joe that can go (almost) anywhere you click.
There are still many things to be tweaked though. The next step would be to add mid-air nodes to allow AI Joe to make trick jumps and change it’s direction mid-air. Another thing would be smoothing it’s motion so it won’t pause before each move.
All these are just scratching the surface of what it took to get this to work, more about that in a future post dedicated to how the AI was implemented.
In other news, an awesome friend of mine “Kristina Toxicpanda” made an awesome fan-art painting for Move or Die! Check out her other drawings!
