Astonishing Outcomes: ChatGPT-4 Simulates a Two-Player Game of Competing Evolving Worlds

Updated: Dec 15, 2023




In an unprecedented experiment, We recently asked ChatGPT-4, the latest iteration of OpenAI's language model, to simulate a two-player game.


The game was not your typical board game or video game, but rather a competition of evolving worlds complete with AI generated images (ChatGPT4 x Dalle3). The results were nothing short of astounding.


The Game

The game's premise was simple yet profound. Two players would each start with a world, complete with its own unique ecosystem. The objective was to evolve their respective worlds in a way that would outperform the other. The catch? They had to do this while simultaneously adapting to the changes in the other player's world.


The Simulation

ChatGPT-4 took on the challenge with gusto. It began by creating detailed descriptions of each world, including the various species that inhabited them and the environmental conditions that prevailed. It then simulated the actions of the players as they made strategic decisions to evolve their worlds.


The Results

The results were a testament to the power of artificial intelligence. ChatGPT-4 not only managed to simulate the game but also predicted the outcomes based on the players' decisions. It showcased how species evolved, ecosystems changed, and worlds adapted in response to the competition.

The simulation was not just a series of random events. It was a dynamic, interactive process that reflected the complexity of real-world evolution and competition. The players' decisions had far-reaching implications, affecting not just their own worlds but also the other player's world.

This experiment underscores the potential of AI in simulating complex scenarios. It demonstrates how AI can be used to model and predict outcomes in situations that involve multiple variables and interactions. This has far-reaching implications for fields like ecology, economics, and social sciences, where understanding the dynamics of complex systems is crucial.


This original experiment with ChatGPT-4 was a resounding success. It showed that AI has come a long way in its ability to understand, simulate, and predict complex scenarios. As AI continues to evolve, who knows what other astounding results we might witness in the future?


Check out the entire experiment and generated images below:

what are the rules?

Evolvo

In the Evolvo game, you and the other player are tasked with guiding the evolution of your respective planets. Here are the basic rules:

  1. Starting Point: Each player starts with a simple atom. The game progresses through various stages of evolution, from microscopic life to complex civilizations.

  2. Turns and Actions: Players take turns to evolve their world. On each turn, you can make one significant evolutionary change. Examples include evolving from atoms to simple life forms, developing plant life, creating animal species, establishing human civilizations, or advancing technology.

  3. Split-Screen Evolution: Since it's a 2-player game, each player's world evolves independently on their side of the split-screen. This allows for a direct comparison between the two evolutionary paths.

  4. Guided Imagery: After each turn, I will generate an isometric view image reflecting the current state of both worlds. The scale is precise, with 25 pixels equaling 1 foot, ensuring detailed and accurate visual representations.

  5. Interaction and Challenges: Players can introduce challenges or events in their own or the other player's world, like natural disasters, climatic changes, or the introduction of new species. These actions can influence the direction of evolution.

  6. Endgame and Objectives: The game doesn't have a set endpoint. You can decide to play until reaching a particular era (like the space age) or continue indefinitely, exploring various evolutionary paths. The objective is to creatively and interactively explore the concept of evolution.

  7. Cooperative or Competitive: You can choose to play cooperatively, aiding each other's evolution, or competitively, trying to outpace or challenge the other player's evolutionary progress.

Now, let's continue your game. What evolutionary step would you like to take next in your world?
