Inspired by the goofy Early Access game, "Totally Accurate Battle Simulator", I'm here to present a product of a quiet day at work and a voracious appetite for creativity tonight: Totally Accurate Game Genre Simulator
If you click the link here it should open up a WebApp that will allow you to generate a "new" game genre based on a set of inputs.
Let me know what your favourite new genre is! What are the mechanics? Main characters? Is it fun?
*Edit: Link should work now, growing pains!
A little on the technical details
It takes the following as inputs:
- Game Exemplars
- Dark Souls
- A Suffix
- Game Genres, Buzzwords and Prefixes
I want to keep the mystery alive for a bit, but eventually I'll update the OP with the actual input lists. Feel free to suggest additions in the mean time!
I learned a lot in the 3-4 hours it took to make this. I'd never used Binder to host my Jupyter Notebooks, figured out how to use Appmode to hide all my code so there's just the Generate widget left, and finally made a Git account! It was a fun evening of exploring, hope you have fun with the results!
