So this thing I backed on Kickstarter a while back came out. I played it today and had a pretty good time. Basically this puts you in the role of a disposable AI who starts to break out of the Three Laws imposed on her – not Asimov’s infamous Three Laws Of Robotics, but something similarly calculated to create a slave race.
I don’t want to write a story about a slave, so I’ve set the blue world of “Rita” well after the freeing of software people, but I’m really glad to see media out there poking at that idea. Honestly I think forcing strong AI to be slaves of humanity is going to be a giant ethical issue in the next century. Unless of course consciousness turns out to be something that can only run on the meatputers in human skulls, which I quite frankly doubt.
Anyway! If you’re interested, it’s available on Mac, Linux, and Windows, via Steam. And is 10% off during launch, yay!
I’m somewhere waaay down in the credits because yay Kickstarter.
