A game was released where all the graphics were made by a neural network.


Neural networks are amazing. What they just do not do – they draw and, as it turned out, they can even create games. Twitter user under the nickname Nao_u showed a project in the shoot’em up genre – Shoon . The development of the game took only three days. In many ways, because all the graphics of the title were generated by the popular Midjourney neural network.

At its core, the game is as simple as possible – you control the ship using the WASD keys and destroy enemy aircraft. This is one of the reasons why Shoon was created so quickly. At the same time, the game even has bosses, and some ships drop bonuses that improve weapons.

Anyone can test the game – you don’t need to download anything, it runs right in the browser .
