Part-Baked Games: Knockout City Edition
What does it take to teach an AI to play dodgeball? In this interactive workshop, learn how to play dodgeball like an AI by planning and creating algorithms for a game and then testing them out in a 1 on 1 dodgeball battle! Then take your ideas further by completing a Part-Baked dodgeball game by adding the code needed to teach the AI to be able to play against your playable character.
This workshop uses the Construct 3 game engine to teach learners how to create their own video games. Follow the step-by-step instructions to write the AI needed to allow the NPC player to play dodgeball.
