Description:

Gray Games is proud to present the A.I. Project, which is the first Digital Life Form for your Atari 2600 Video Game System. Watch your Sea Cy-Ghost swim around its surroundings gobbling up food, sleep, and even lay eggs that hatch smaller Sea Cy-Ghosts. The Sea Cy-Ghost will also react with you via your Recoton Joystick. But don't worry, it is friendly. Get your very own Sea Cy-Ghost today.

The World

  • Underwater screen (like looking into a fishtank minus reflection)
  • Small airlevel (above ocean)
  • Large Waterlevel (in ocean)
  • Sandbed with plants at bottom of screen
  • Sound of ocean (like putting shell up to ear)

Main Character: Sea Cy-Ghost

  • has limited A.I. Intelligence
  • is motivated by eating Pac-Mans(he won't go after Pac-Mans unless they are he gets close to them)
  • is motivated by interaction with player(when player pushes red button of joystick)
  • is motivated like any fish by just swimming.
  • may or may not sleep depending on activity in ocean
  • will make different sound depending on activity
  • If it is left alone enough, it will sleep
  • If it eats enough food, and player doesn't push fire button in a long while, then we can have the Ghost lay little eggs that eventually hatch into little Sea Cy-Ghosts that when hatched slowly swim off the screen never to return.

Sea Cy-Ghosts Food

  • much smaller Pac-Mans swimming in water
  • these would eat bits of plants in bottom of sea floor
  • they would run away from Sea Cy-Ghost when Ghost chases them
  • They could make quiet noise when eating plants.
  • They ignore cursor

Plants

  • sway to and fro calmly

The Player

  • Player can pet (touch) Ghost by putting cursor on Ghost and pressing fire button. The Ghost will make noise and seems to be happy.
  • Player can move cursor away from Ghost. When player pushes button, Ghost stops what he is doing and moves towards cursor until he reaches it.

Sound

  • this would sound as Atarily possible as what the ocean would sound like.
  • intro music before game starts

Finale

  • This program never ends. If the Atari is not turned off, things will continuously happen like a real fishtank. So a person could use it as an Atari Fishtank if they wish.
