Matthew Guzdial and Mark O. Riedl

Automated game design is the problem of automatically producing games through computational processes.

In this article, we instead learn representations of existing games from gameplay video and use these to approximate a search space of novel games. In a human subject study, we demonstrate that these novel games are indistinguishable from human games in terms of challenge and that one of the novel games was equivalent to one of the human games in terms of fun, frustration, and likeability.
