Video Game Homebrew Wiki



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


  • 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.


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


  • 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.
