Welcome to LiteTux.ca

While researching computer science at UBC, we developed a mixed initiative editor for creating platform games. A mixed initiative editor is an editor where the computer uses AI techniques (in our case we used deep learning and evolutionary algorithms) to make suggestions to the user with the user either directly using the suggestions or being inspired by the suggestions. Knowing that we wanted to test this editor publicly we wanted a game that was not encumbered by IP and so took a look at the open source game SuperTux. This game was a bit too complicated for our needs and was not a web-based game so I decided to make a simplified version of this game that would run in a web browser and so the game LiteTux was born

This is the game with the three tutorial levels and the levels from the user study that participants allowed to be released to the public. All the code and level information for the game is available on Github (https://github.com/BillySpelchan/LiteTux) so anybody who wishes to use or expand upon this game can do so.

The mixed initiative editor for the game allows you to create and share (via links so no sign-in or moderation is required). As with the game code, the source code for the editor is on Github (https://github.com/BillySpelchan/LiteTux).
