As the game itself expands, game design is unprecedentedly linked with all other areas. Among them, the application of games to scientific research is a typical example. However, looking back at some of these previous games, many rely on the simple labor of a large number of players, such as MIT’s EyeWire, which uses 3D decryption to draw neural network maps.
In the indie game HOUND, players are given more powerful abilities: creating life and their living space. The ultimate goal of the game is to apply it to the study of artificial intelligence, neural networks and ecosystems.
