Above is an image capture from Alice and Kev, a project from British game design student Robin Burkinshaw. The project, presented as a frequently updated blog, tracks the lives of a homeless father and daughter family Burkinshaw created in the Sims 3. She guides the two characters as little as possible, instead relying on AI and their set personality traits (the father is insane, while the daughter is compassionate). The amount of conflict created by these two characters is on par with pretty much any soap opera – and despite being completely artificial computer game characters, the humanity of them is plainly evident in the entries’ comments, in which readers express sympathy for various characters and contempt for others.
