Indeed. I find it rather fitting that AI has been used to generate artwork for a fan game in a series centred so heavily on AI.

So, as an example, the query:

In primordial space, timeless creatures made waves. These waves created us and the others. Waves were the battles, and the battles were waves. :: style of Yoshitaka Amano, Junji Ito, Kentaro Miura, Kazuo Umezu, Hideo Yamamoto:: vivid strange psychedelic colors, cinematic lighting, highly detailed, concept art, trending on artstation --v 4 --q 2

gave us:

And:

In primordial space, timeless creatures made waves. These waves created us and the others. Waves were the battles, and the battles were waves. style of In the Court of the Crimson King, vivid psychedelic colors, cinematic lighting, highly detailed, trending on artstation --v 4 --q 2

gave us:

The images pfhorrest posted were generated with:

In primordial space, timeless creatures made waves. These waves created us and the others. Waves were the battles, and the battles were waves. highly detailed, luminescent bloom, vivid psychedelic lighting, chiaroscuro, Raman effect, cinematography by Roger Deakins --ar 44:19 --q 2

Iíve used variants of this excerpt a lot to generate prompts; Iíd estimate that around 25% of the AI-generated art in Eternal is based on it. Maybe more.

You can find everything Iíve ever generated on Midjourney at https://alpha.midjourney.com/app/users/377652138567925762/, but youíll need to be a member of Discord to see it and will need to give Midjourney Bot permission to access your account.

I should note that I have mixed feelings about the use of AI more broadly in society, but I think for itís an unmitigated blessing for free projects like this. Almost every single use of AI art in Eternal is only displayed once in a single terminal. No rational human being would spend the time to generate as many eye-catching images for such terminal screens as weíve wound up with. The single exception is used as a level landscape, but itís only used once, in the very brief level ďTo Sleep, Perchance to DreamĒ, so the principle still applies.

AI art could potentially be a boon for small indie games as well Ė graphics are one area where theyíve lagged considerably behind AAA titles, and AI could help to level the playing field for them. Where I start to have issues is when large game studios, major publications, etc., start using AI-generated art to avoid having to pay Ďrealí artists. That said, I havenít heard any proposed responses to this issue that Iíd expect to result in improvements, but this is not the place to discuss the myriad problems with our current implementation of copyright, so Iíll cut this short here.
