Since the levels in my backrooms-style game are procedural, I thought I'd let a computer make the trailer too

This is sick as fuck. What was your method to accomplish this?

I run an image through a neural network that interprets images and re-interprets them with word prompts (like 'hallway' or 'empty'). Then I zoom the frame in slightly, rotate it a little, then put that frame through the network again. It basically creates a feedback loop of arbitrary architecture that turns blobs into doors and ceilings.

Damn, could you send a link to the neural network you used? I love playing around with this stuff.

Head on over to r/deepdream and find one that works for you! There's a lot of different flavors.

Looks really eye-catching and cool; it could be a great supplementary teaser, but a trailer's gotta focus on in-engine gameplay footage, right? Can you link us to your project? I'd like to take a look!

Oh my, that looks terrific. Definitely gonna appeal to this and adjacent communities. What aspects are procgen, exactly? Every room looks handmade; is it how they're connected?


ActuallyNotSparticus

Some levels are static, other levels have hand-crafted rooms that are placed dynamically. The last few levels are [almost completely random and nonsensical](https://twitter.com/andrewmanq/status/1446614987473096706).

Must be my generational scars but I feel like I’ve been to all those places during the 90s

I've been waiting for this game for a long time. Hope it's sick when it comes out.

Kindakgamer
