Recent breakthroughs in text-to-image synthesis have been driven by diffusion models trained on billions of image-text pairs. Adapting this approach to 3D synthesis becomes an exciting future and people are wondering how to use text to create a game.
Creating a video game that captures players' attention and becomes trendy is a dream for many game developers. Not only is there excitement and fulfillment for a video game developer in creating a popular hit for the masses and impacting popular culture as we know it, but the resulting impact can also potentially be highly lucrative.
With the right approach and careful consideration of various game design factors, you can increase the chances of creating a game that resonates with the gaming community.
OpenCoord's AI-generated content features are a revolutionary turning point in the democratization of 3D content creation. Creators can interact with new generative AI-powered capabilities and create games smarter, faster, and more efficiently than ever before.
OpenCoord's AI is an assistant based on the enormous asset library that we are very proud to have. The very first and essential step for creating an AI assistant is data processing. The most challenging part is art standardization because the assets are from different files: prefab, fbx, gltf, audio, and animation clips. We've built a unified art standard, compatible with different render pipelines, from models to effects. This way, these assets can not only be used by creators but can also be used by AI to generate the best-looking world possible.

To craft an immersive 3D game, start by outlining a clear backstory that sets the scene. Describe the when, where, why, what and who to ground the world. For example, "In the year 2050 AD, robot butlers have become commonplace in homes after a breakthrough in AI. You play as Eva, a 12-year-old girl whose parents bought her a new robot companion." This establishes the setting, time period, characters and conflict. Next, decide on an art style that matches your story's tone, like fantasy, sci-fi or modern. If it's a whimsical robot game, a cute and cartoonish style could work well. Bring your world to life through rich textual descriptions of scenes and characters. Leave some mystery too to pique players' curiosity. By shaping a coherent backdrop with an intentional aesthetic, you enable immersion in your 3D game universe.

Next, we want to make sure the generated scene has optimal performance. We need to find the balance between art and performance, not only with a unified art style but also with a unified data processing pipeline. This means getting everything in sync, like the render pipeline, lighting and shadow, polygon count, LOD, texture, collider, animations, and audio. By doing this, we not only ensure that the game looks great but also runs smoothly on mobile and PC platforms!

With OpenCoord's Game Ideator, video game developers can use a combination of text prompts, keywords, and game titles, along with pre-defined options or existing games, to generate brand-new game ideas and concepts. You can also get AI suggestions and generations for different types of game concepts or game prototyping, such as ideas for game mechanics, main characters, storylines, images, and more.

Alternative Approaches to Brainstorming Games and Game Ideas

In addition to AI-powered tools like OpenCoord's Game Ideator, there are creative brainstorming exercises that encourage thinking outside the box:

  • The Random Word Game - Pick an arbitrary word from a generator, then use it to spark a game idea. Randomness pushes unique connections.
  • The "What If?" Game - Ask hypotheticals like "What if the game world was upside-down?" to stretch your imagination. The absurdity reveals exciting new possibilities.
  • The Mashup Game - Fuse disparate concepts like "racing + cooking". The blend of unrelated things often yields originality.

By supplementing AI with these types of idea-spurring games, developers can explore the full creative space and dream up innovations that resonate with players. The synergy of human ingenuity and AI assists unlocks vast new potential.
