Turning the Algorithm Loose (for the most part): Alice and Kev

On turning the algorithm loose in a game…

Check out Alice and Kev if you haven’t already. It’s a pretty heart-wrenching story (for those of you with hearts…) using screenshots from the Sims 3. It’s an experiment on homelessness in the Sims (removing all of the belongings of an abusive, mean-spirited Sim father and his kind-hearted daughter) and a documentation of the characters’¬†interactions in the Sims world. It’s interesting to see how the two characters interact based on the personality traits and life goals they are given in the beginning of the game.
