This Program Can Use Your Voice To Create Video Games

A new AI program is helping to create computer code by listening to natural speech – including creating your very own video games.

OpenAI Codex beta works with a dozen coding languages. But as PC Gamer reported, one of the coolest features is the creation of Javascript video games with just a few natural language instructions.

As OpenAI Codex’s website says:

“Proficient in more than a dozen programming languages, Codex can now interpret simple commands in natural language and execute them on the user’s behalf—making it possible to build a natural language interface to existing applications.”

Watch the program in action with the YouTuber Joy of Curiosity:

This type of code could open up coding to so many more people – not only because it makes coding simple but also because it’s so simple. Using only your voice you can create your own programs with OpenAI Codex. It’s only a beta at the moment – but it has huge potential to change the world of coding.

We’re just now wondering what kinds of games could be created using this technology. Would they be simple 2D point and click adventures? Or is there potential for more complex games to be made here? The possibilities for the future are endless!
