High On Life creator Justin Roiland has revealed that the game will feature AI-generated art and voice acting.
The topic of AI generation has increasingly become a hot discussion, with arguments over its use and the ethical, artistic, and technological implications it has.
In conversation with Sky newsRoiland spoke about the use of AI in the development of High On Life.
Roiland stated that most of the art was hand-drawn, but the team used Midjourney AI to create some visuals to make the game world “feel like a weird alternate universe.” “And we used it to come up with weird, funny ideas,” he continued. Strange perhaps, but Edwin disagreed with the “funny” description in his review of the game.
Lead Designer Erich Meyr revealed that AI was also used for some of the game’s voice acting. While it was originally used for prototype voting, “a supporting role” was retained for the final game.
Roiland also expressed his confidence in the use of AI in game development in the future. “AI will be a tool that has the potential to make content creation incredibly accessible,” he added.
Players have noticed the AI art in the game, which consists of posters on a wall. I’ll let you make up your own mind on that.
