New Indie Game Invites Players to Train—and Frustrate—AI

The London-based artist duo dmstfctn launches GODMODE EPOCHS (2023), a “multi-player AI frustration game.” Set among the lined shelves of an infinite, simulated supermarket, players race against time to train an AI to identify products. When frustrated, the AI seeks refuge in its memories—a separate game map where players can collaborate to cheat. The “reciprocal training program”—players train and are trained—is part of a long-term research project supported by the Alan Turing Institute and Serpentine Galleries.
