Luke and Jimmy (Me) create a game to help the awareness about poverty. The key technology of the game are AI chat bots.
Poverty Chat is a unique web based game that uses natural language to explore a virtual world. The player will have an opportunity to meet an array of different characters. The player will have to solve the mysteries by chatting with other characters in the game. These characters don’t have the average computer response you are used to; they each have their own personality and will response to you differently using an AI Bot technology. The idea is to get the user involved in conversations. Some of the characters may refere to others to find the right answer. When the answer is found thier notepad takes note for them for later levels.
The theme of the game is Poverty. The player will learn what, why, and solutions to poverty throughout the game and will be needed to win the game.
The goal of the game is to help solve poverty by learning about poverty and spreading the word about poverty.
