Griddly: A platform for AI research in games

11/12/2020 ∙ by Chris Bamford, et al. ∙ 0

In recent years, there have been immense breakthroughs in Game AI research, particularly with Reinforcement Learning (RL). Despite their success, the underlying games are usually implemented with their own preset environments and game mechanics, thus making it difficult for researchers to prototype different game environments. However, testing the RL agents against a variety of game environments is critical for recent effort to study generalization in RL and avoid the problem of overfitting that may otherwise occur. In this paper, we present Griddly as a new platform for Game AI research that provides a unique combination of highly configurable games, different observer types and an efficient C++ core engine. Additionally, we present a series of baseline experiments to study the effect of different observation configurations and generalization ability of RL agents.
