I found out that Open AI's ChatGPT understands programming, including Pico 8 LUA. I had it create something simple, a pong game. I did create the sound effects, but 99.9% of the code was created by ChatGPT. I found the best way to get it to add more code without timing out is to just request it to create code snippets for _draw() and or _update()

Code:

 ```p1_y = 36 p2_y = 36 ball_x = 64 ball_y = 36 ball_vx = 1 ball_vy = 1 p1_score = 0 p2_score = 0 game_state = "start" function _update() if game_state == "start" and (btn(4) or btn(5)) then game_state = "play" p1_score = 0 p2_score = 0 end -- move the paddles if btn(0) then p1_y -= 1 end if btn(1) then p1_y += 1 end if btn(2) then p2_y -= 1 end if btn(3) then p2_y += 1 end -- clamp the paddles to the screen p1_y = mid(8, p1_y, 68) p2_y = mid(8, p2_y, 68) -- move the ball ball_x += ball_vx ball_y += ball_vy -- bounce the ball off the paddles if ball_x < 3 and ball_y > p1_y-4 and ball_y < p1_y+4 then ball_vx = -ball_vx sfx(1) end if ball_x > 123 and ball_y > p2_y-4 and ball_y < p2_y+4 then ball_vx = -ball_vx sfx(1) end -- bounce the ball off the top and bottom of the screen if ball_y < 0 then ball_vy = -ball_vy sfx(0) end if ball_y > 72 then ball_vy = -ball_vy sfx(0) end if ball_x < 0 then sfx(2) p2_score += 1 ball_x = 64 ball_y = 36 ball_vx = 1 ball_vy = 1 end if ball_x > 128 then sfx(2) p1_score += 1 ball_x = 64 ball_y = 36 ball_vx = -1 ball_vy = 1 -- check for game over if p1_score >= 10 or p2_score >= 10 then -- check for input to restart the game if btn(4) or btn(5) then p1_score = 0 p2_score = 0 ball_x = 64 ball_y = 36 ball_vx = 1 ball_vy = 1 end end end end function _draw() cls() -- check the game state if game_state == "start" then -- clear the screen cls() -- display the start screen print("gpt-pong", 48, 24, 7) print("credits: by. chatgpt", 32, 36, 7) print("press x or o to start game", 24, 48, 7) elseif game_state == "play" then cls() -- draw the paddles and ball rectfill(0, p1_y-4, 2, p1_y+4, 7) rectfill(126, p2_y-4, 128, p2_y+4, 7) circfill(ball_x, ball_y, 2, 7) -- draws the player scores print(p1_score, 4, 2, 7) print(p2_score, 118, 2, 7) -- check for game over if p1_score >= 10 or p2_score >= 10 then -- clear the screen cls() -- display the winner if p1_score >= 10 then print("player 1 wins!", 32, 36, 7) else print("player 2 wins!", 32, 36, 7) end -- display the restart message print("press x or o to restart the game", 32, 48, 7) end end end ```

OK, it's time to let ChatGPT write itself.ðŸ˜‚

This was fun, thank u! I found it especially amusing to play pong against myself as punishment for being curious if AI could make a pico-8 game. There are so many layers of ridiculous here, that it ended up being true peice of interactive art! Playing pong against yourself is similar to asking AI to create what u want. It's a reflection of your intention in the way pong is a mirror of itself.
