Per Aspera [is] a strategic city-builder that has players working to terraform Mars as the artificial consciousness AMI. You're a genderless superintelligence capable of incredible things, but you're also effectively a child with no conception of society or social interaction.

that's how Otaegui and the team designed AMI and the player's role in its cognition. "In Per Aspera you play as the right side of an artificial bicameral mind, and there's a left side that is all the little voices and reflections that you see as you play," he explained. "What these reflections try to imitate is all these thoughts that we have in our mind, or perhaps this inner voice that they say half of humanity has in their head talking to us, which is actually the combination of both sides—the thing that creates the consciousness."

To support the idea that it is an artificial intelligence building the colony, the game uses state of the art optimization and planning algorithms. The real challenge was having it do all that but not making it too easy.

This sounds like another fascinating and rewarding game that really makes you feel like you are a powerful artificial intelligence in command of a whole world.
