AI for Game Developers: "Thank you, Mario! But our Princess is in another castle!"
If you are a game developer and are still doing things the old way — digging for your treasure in the proverbial wrong castle, — we feel for you. Indeed, your troubles and headaches are many and varied: writing the script and code, designing the characters, props, and sets, doing the voiceover. None of these things are cheap or easy, but thankfully, one of your worries can now be pretty much eliminated, thanks to AI. Today we are excited to tell you how using human-like AI voice robots instead of human actors in the game voiceover process will save you time and money. We will also nudge you towards revolutionizing the video gaming industry and gaining scores of new, happy customers by building into your game natural-language voice commands and player-character voice interaction.
Forget about doing things the old way — renting expensive recording studios and hiring fickle voice talents and a crew to add sound to your game.
Instead, how about getting an army of voice robots to do your bidding? The robots we build here at AMAI come packaged in a simple, straightforward editor that even a child can master, and through it you can teach your voice accents, acronyms, cadence, emotions, etc. that go with your character's personality. You can also add background music — all right at your fingertips, easier than even Google Docs!

To create our robots, we at AMAI start with the highest possible quality voice datasets from professional actors. Our models are then trained using AI and natural-language understanding (NLU) technologies. As a result, a semblance of emotional artificial intelligence emerges: our robots can recognize and respond to punctuation — commas, question marks, exclamation points, — which in turn gives their speech human-like, natural quality that is compelling to the game players. You don't have to take our word for it — come and play with our demo.

One thing we noticed that is patently missing from most of today's computer games is true interactivity. Players are generally limited to controlling the gameplay via mouse, joystick, keyboard keys, or eye tracking. But that's boring and stifling! What if they wanted to continue the game while doing dishes or running on their treadmill? They're out of luck, for the most part.

If you are looking to bring your product to a qualitatively new level ("up your game"), while adding more fun to it, you could add sophisticated voice controls and voice personalities for your players and characters. Not only could then the human voice be used for making selections (via ASR, or automated speech recognition), but players could converse with their game characters, directing them or engaging in a dialogue. NLP (natural language processing) and NLU technologies make it all possible, and these dialogues could be quite involved and exciting. As the game developer and master, you could create, adjust, and fine-tune these scripts with the help of the tools that come with our voice robots — and then just sit back and wait for your users to flood you with their gratitude (and bucks!).

Go ahead, give our voice robots a try, we are certain you'll like them. While you're at it, don't forget to claim you free 1 million voiced characters.

And remember, talking to robots is simple and easy — but don't do it while brushing your teeth. Our robots are smart, but not THAT smart (yet)!
