New Project: Subverse Legacy

Currently, a new project based on the "Subverse Project - Origin" is in development. This new project, called "Subverse Legacy", works over of the initial ideas about a virtual world to the learning of algorithms. Thus, students can programming elements (non-player characters)  in a environment like a muliplayer game. This new project is about that context also, but with few ideas that evolved over the years, discussions and last publications. News coming soon.

Paper presented on VI Latin-American Journey of Theatrical Studies

On 6th and 7th July, a paper called "Interactive Performatic Dialogs to Virtual Actors" (Diálogos Performáticos Interativos Para Atores Virtuais), written by Saulo Popov Zambiasi and Patricia Leandra Barrifi Pinheiro, was presented on "VI Latin-American Journey of Theatrical Studies" (VI Jornada Latino-Americana de Estudos Teatrais). This paper presents concepts about use of Artificial Intelligence technologias to interactive elements on performances and theatrical spectacles. In this context, this paper proposes the use of a virtual, digital or robotic actor with uses of chat bots techniques and changing of animic states with use of templates based on concepts of emotional memory of Stanislavsky.

Subverse Team on I Simpósio de Pesquisas em Games da UFSC

The team of the Subverse had three papers accepted for apersentação on Research Symposium on Games of UFSC (SPG-UFSC: I Simpósio de Pesquisas em Games da UFSC). That event will be held on November 26 and 27 at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC - Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina). They accepted the following papers (title in portuguese and authors):

  • Roteiros de Interação entre Jogador e Non-Player Character Baseados em Mudanças de Estados Anímicos para Jogos Digitais (Saulo Popov Zambiasi e Patricia Leandra Barrufi Pinheiro);

Subverse Project as a Interdisciplinar Research Group

Project Subverse been updated. More currently has became an interdisciplinar research group focused on Cyberart. So the first project of Subverse had its name changed to "Subverse Project - Origin". The current group is formed by a set of researchers in different areas (Computer Science, Information Systems, Games Development, Theater, Performance).

BDI Agents and Embedded Lua Script on Subverse

Is currently being implement the use of embedded Lua scripts to coordinate the behavior of agents in the virtual world of Subverse Project, so there is no longer need to have to recompile the code each change in the behavior of agents. Agent technologies must be implemented to provide resources to designers of behaviors, eg BDI (Beliefs, Desires and Intentions). Another new feature is the implementation of network multiple connections on the new engine of Subverse.

New Engine 2D in Development

A new graphics engine for representation of virtual world of subverse is in development. That engine is separated in layers. First layer called SLE (Subverse Low Engine) is finished. It's composed by modules of graphics, images, sounds, musics, texts and network funcionalities and uses SDL (Simple Direct Layer) as basement.
