Abstract

In this paper, we describe the design and development of a short form game, Alphabet Soup. Alphabet Soup is designed to use Bayesian networks in conjunction with data from UNESCO, UNICEF,and WHO to create realistic results within gameplay about social issues around the world. This paper illustrates our attempts to implement an artificial intelligence system in short form game design. Using Bayesian networks we attempt to control simple behaviors for game agents that direct gameplay in social awareness games designed to be consumable.
