In-game Content Generation Using Machine Learning

Tuesday 9th July: 11.00 - 11.45 Room 4

Adapting gameplay difficulty and content based on player profiles is vital for better retention. We take the example of the Free-to-play Dreamwork’s Trollhunters RPG and take an in-depth look at how Machine Learning algorithms can be employed to discover player profiles and present profile relevant content. We go into implementation details on how these methods can be crafted and adapted for other game genres or use cases and how they can positively impact player retention. We then talk about a special breed of Machine Learning methods called Recommender Systems that can be used to take the load off the designers and learn from players about their skill level and preferences and use that information to tailor in-game content.

  • Game design practices for better player retention.
  • How Machine Learning algorithms can be adapted for generating in-game content.
  • Implementation instructions on how to craft these algorithms.
