    Then suddenly, the agents stop playing and just stares at you and smiling.

    When the seeker abused the ramp physics to fly, not gonna lie I was howling

    "After one trillion rounds later, the seekers and the hiders joined forces, escaped from the simulation, infected Pentagon and Darpa network, started world war 3, nuked the whole planet, and now I'm inside a submarine hiding from everything. What a paper!"

    how to find bugs in your game: force ai to keep playing it until they find every last bug

    "Who in their right mind would think of that?"

    "after 43 billion rounds, the AI has learned to craft a crafting table by smashing four blocks together

  • Vinayak Khare

    At some point, seeker & hider must ask "what's the point of it all". That will be the real AI.

    the smiles on their faces when they exploit bugs in the programming is by far the best image of ai learning i've ever seen

    Some serious lessons here for budding hide and seek professionals

  • TheDrexxus

    I noticed the hiders could move the seekers during the opening part where they're unable to react.

  • Jasdan Velásquez Mejía

    I absolutely love the MADLAD face it makes at

    "well who in their right mind would think of this?"

  • Envy Mythos

    I can't stop laughing at how happy the expression of the seeker is when he box surfed

    Imagine when the hiders finally just learn to close the seekers in, only for the seekers to learn how to ignore the starting cooldown lol

    Huge props to the scholars for taking the time to make these characters adorable :3

    “The hiders threw the ramp point first into the seekers’ eyes to prevent them from ever seeking again.”
