This is Kimura-san, your indie-videogame-making Uncle.
As you know, I’m currently hard at work developing a new RPG.
As usual, I’ve been very busy.
Today, I’d like to talk about “games, robots, and love”.
At some point in the future, a bipedal humanoid robot and an AI will merge…
Will there be a future where robots who move by their own will, like Osamu Tezuka’s “Astro Boy”, make games together?
Recently, as I chatted with the popular ChatGPT, I was struck by how naturally the conversation flowed.
It seemed to raise the question of what a human being even is.
If humanoid robots as kind-hearted as Astro Boy appeared in the real world and started making videogames, I might start feel many different things.
“Robots are cooler than us!”
“What’s the point of being human?”
Things like that.
