Founded by Amir Sadeghian, Ali Sadeghian, and Fei-Fei Li, Astrocade provides an AI platform that makes it possible for creators to express their creativity in a form that audiences consume, interact with, and inhabit. Using generative AI, the system allows gamers to create their own games using text-to-image prompts and load them to the community for others to play. Using its proprietary Artificial Gaming Intelligence™, players use natural language to create and modify games while playing them and share the game with a single tap to fellow creators and followers. Features include narrative, audio, 2D and 3D art, NPCs, and game mechanics. They’re currently in closed alpha.
