What is Marbles AI?

Marbles AI® is a multiplayer open-world life simulation game with state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence (AI). You take charge of learning simulated life forms in this game - the Marbles.

A Marble starts out with no knowledge of its own body, its environment, the rules of the game, or other game characters in a physically realistic game world. It will be clumsy at first, make many mistakes and be subject to errors, but it can always improve. Your task is to help it and succeed together with it!

What will your Marble be able to do in the end? We don't know either, because it depends on you!

Marble's AI is currently in development. In-game footage and more info will follow soon.

Target release date: "When it's done!" (2022)


About the production of Marbles AI

Marbles AI® is in development since 2018. We build our AI on award-winning and promising fundamental research in the field of Artificial Intelligence and align it with the requirements of gamers.

The concept and vision of Marbles AI® are influenced by the teaching and research project "Mario AI" which was led at the University of Tübingen at the Chair of Neurocognitive Modeling by our founder and gained international prominence in 2015 (see Furthermore, we apply his award-winning research in neural networks and social intelligence as well as numerous other relevant cognitive science and psychological studies in the development of our AI.

Currently, we are receiving the German Computer Games Grant from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure ( and have previously been awarded the and funded by the Innovation Grant of the University of Tuebingen's Excellence Initiative for the Marbles AI® project (

We are attempting nothing less than to create something entirely new with Marbles AI®. There has never been a game for the masses that uses such an ambitious cognitive architecture to control its characters. Not without reason: the technical hurdles pose a formidable challenge that we at Quantum Gaming, with the help of our supporters, are rising to.

Support us!

Marbles AI® is a hybrid project of fundamental research and game industry which has to overcome many obstacles. As a fresh startup without significant revenues we need support from people who believe in our vision.

We are currently working on a larger crowdfunding campaign which will go online in the next few weeks. This way we want to establish a first potential player base, make the project more known, get feedback and raise more funds. The campaign will introduce an early access model that will give players timely access to the beta version of Marbles AI as well as exclusive content. After the crowdfunding campaign, we will complete the game for the general public.

Roll smart and help us realize the project now!
