The images shown here have been created using data from the game Unreal
Tournament. Each image represents about 30 mins of gameplay in which the
computers AI plays against itself, with 20-25 bots playing each game.
Bots play custom maps created by Alison Mealey. Each map has been pathed so
that the bots have a rough idea of where to go in order to create the image
she wants. Alison logs the position (X,Y,Z) of each player each second using
a customized mutator, as well as the position of a death. She then runs her
own code written in processing to create postscript files of that
Every image represents 1 full game, and the position of the dots or
lines reflects the position of a player at a given time. You can either read
Alison's blog or read her interesting essay to know more about her research
and the process used in her work.
