A downloadable game for Windows and macOS


You are a flower having a nightmare where you are chased by hummingbirds who want nothing but to drink all your nectar. Failing to escape them will result in your untimely demise. Do you have what it takes to escape the machine learning hummingbirds?!


This is the second prototype game I developed for EECS 499 at the University of Michigan as a research project. The research project was interested in exploring the application of machine learning in game development. As such, I tried to create a playable game centered around machine learning agents. This prototype game is the end result of what I was able to accomplish in little under a semester's worth of research and development.
