Dual Universe's Secret

Recommended Posts

Alright so Dual Universe is going to have an underlying secret according to their kickstarter, those who fund at the Kyrium level ($7809) will aid in developing of "Development of a DU Secret".

 

Now of course everything that follows here is just speculation.

 

JC is an expert in the latest Robotics and AI, I believe that there will be an AI in the game which may have its own objectives. This AI would likely be unlike anything we have in any other game, and might even learn for itself to make its own decisions. When the game is released, don't trust the AI anymore than you have to.

 

Here is a quote from the lore article here.

 

"There’s something schizophrenic, even bipolar about this AI. Depending on whether she’s addressing you or the phantom crew, whether she’s handling the ship or coaching you, she adopts a different tone and a different vocabulary. It’s not just that she’s adapting, that she manipulates you to push you to your optimum mental and physical health – which I accept quite willingly – she seems to be pursuing a greater, more secret goal, which is not just a matter of a successful colonization or our survival. Something else is at work in her that I can’t seem to understand or articulate."

 

I believe that this is the secret that they are talking about, of course this is a merely speculation, there is no proof.

 

Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? If I'm just making up crap please let me know.

Hmmm... great sci fi theme... a video game AI so sophisticated that it takes over the world, out-competes the humans, and the game is left as the only reality. The protagonist is surprised to discover he is only an NPC in a game populated only with NPCs.

I saw that in the kickstarter too. It depends how you look at it. First off, there are ten of those available. Which means 10 "developments". I was under the impression that each development was it's own separate secret, and they would give some ideas or help you out but you got to choose the specifics of the "secret".

 

AI being linked is definitely a good idea, and, from what you said, more likely than most as there's already some hints towards it. I would never trust an AI regardless! I like your idea, seems neat. I would like something like that, something that affects the game over time and continuously, changing a little as things go on. Something big that players really have to think about.

Maybe DU project is to help with the AI development, learn and play with humans in a sci-fi simulation. Someone need to manage the human race, since we cant do it for our self's.
