AI-Assisted Puzzle Design and Solving in SQUARE LOGIC

Alex J. Champandard on May 28, 2013

This in-depth interview digs into the cult puzzle game EVERYDAY GENIUS: SQUARE LOGIC, powered by logic-based artificial intelligence techniques in both the design and runtime. It uses constraint-based techniques to generate thousands of solvable puzzles in order of difficulty, as well as using logical reasoning to monitor what techniques the player has learnt and potentially giving them hints. Find out how to approach the design of these systems and the huge impact it can have on your design process and game's reception.
