The Basics

Choose Your Adventure

Quick Start a new game using the Play button and choose a setting, character, and name, then watch as the AI fills in details for your Adventure.

Or, pick from hundreds of community-published, predefined Scenarios to start your Adventure. The Discover section is a great place to explore and find content you want to play.

Take A Turn

This is a roleplay experience, so Take a Turn giving your character Do or Say actions. Or, write your own text with Story to move the plot along how you want. It’s your Adventure: anything you can type, you can do!

The AI will generate responses from your inputs and can advance the story to introduce characters, world events, and other elements for you to interact with during gameplay.

Every story is unique and unexpected.

Make it Yours

You are the main character and director of your story.

Use Undo, Redo, Retry, and Edit to control the action. Use Plot Components and Story Cards to keep the AI coherent and consistent. 

Live out your wild ideas however you want: you’re in charge!

Things You Should Know

  1. Anything is possible. Literally anything. You can type any action you think of and the AI will try to generate a story off of your inputs. It's not always perfect, but you'll be surprised at what's possible.
  2. AI is hard. This is a game unlike anything you've ever played before: it uses cutting edge AI technology to generate responses. That being said, there may be weird quirks that you’ll notice. We're always working on improving the AI and keeping up with research, so AI Dungeon will get better as new AI advancements come out.
  3. Use the tools. There are a lot of ways you can improve your gameplay when the AI struggles. Retrying or Editing bad outputs helps the AI pick up on good patterns to mimic instead of bad ones. Using features like Memory and Story Cards helps keep important information at the forefront of the AI’s context so it can generate new text based on the most relevant details.
  4. Revisit your content. Your Adventures and Scenarios are automatically saved and can be rejoined or edited at any time by visiting them in “My Stuff”.

FAQs

How does AI Dungeon even work?

It's part-science, part-magic. ✨

Just kidding, it’s math. So much math. More math than the human brain can comprehend or fathom.

AI Dungeon uses a type of artificial intelligence called a neural net to mathematically analyze the text you put in, then generate text that is likely to follow. Basically, the AI ‘reads’ the last part of your story and tries to guess the next possible set of words, generating the story and results of your actions as you play in endless virtual worlds.

Why do I need an account to play?

Excellent question! We host the AI models on the cloud to enable seamless play on any web browser or mobile device of your choosing.

We also store your adventures in the cloud, so you can always access and play them through your account, even if you switch between devices. You access them through “My Stuff”, which is linked to your account. And, if you choose to publish your stories, they will be listed under your account name.
