3Buddy is a game level design system. The GUI interface allows a game designer to visualise and set constraints for a level. Each time the designer saves the dungeon layout, 3Buddy provides suggested changes to the design by using colour indicators.
‘Suggestions are generated and iteratively evolved by multiple inter-communicating genetic algorithms guiding three different domains: innovation (exploring new directions), guidelines (respecting specific design goals) and convergence (focusing on current co-proposal). The interface allows the designer
to orient the tool behaviour in the space defined by these dimensions.’
