Book Description

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the foundation on which just about every great game is built. If it's realism and unpredictabilty you're after, sophisticated AI will help you deliver an immersive and exciting gaming experience.

This book is for game developers with a basic knowledge of game development techniques and some basic programming techniques in C# or C++.

It starts with the basics examples of AI for different game genres and directly jumps into defining the probabilities and possibilities of the AI character to determine character movement. Next, you'll learn how AI characters should behave within the environment created.

Moving on, you'll explore how to work with animations. You'll also plan and create pruning strategies, and create Theta algorithms to find short and realistic looking game paths. Next, you'll learn how the AI should behave when there is a lot of characters in the same scene.

What You Will Learn:

  • Move beyond using libraries to create smart game AI, and create your own AI projects from scratch
  • Implement the latest algorithms for AI development and in-game interaction
  • Customize your existing game AI and make it better and more efficient to improve your overall game performance
