Redditor Tells the Epic Tale of the Game 'Creatures' and the Troll Who Trained the AI to Only Feel Pain
Buckle up because this one is a ride and a half... but it is an absolute heck of a story. Hats off to SplugyA for putting this masterpiece of a story together about the exploits of 'Creatures' players.
SplurgyA spells it out in great detail but essentially 'Creatures' was a game that let you hatch and raise races of creatures that were essentially Artificial Intelligence that could undergo Pavlovian learning. A few dastardly players figured out that, just like Sims players did, you could mistreat your creatures to mould them into pitiful and horrible beings.
