Soul Jar - farmergnome - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Hi guys, first time Ludum Dare entry, hope you like it, its about evolving AI. A robot that collects and imitates lifeforms, a "soul jar" from space, crash lands and must return to his ship. Along the way you teach it how to behave and depending how you influence and evolve his AI will result in several different endings.
His AI will develop based on your actions, as he learns from you. If you become aggressive shooting your way through the enemies the robot will take on aggressive traits, eventually even targeting you, if you heal, carry and protect him he will learn to protect you also, if you are greedy and consume all the food and liquids and items he will adopt those traits also. There are lots of possibilities with how he acts though I kind of ran out of time as the list is still largely unimplemented. Future version maybe?
