Sumotori Dreams

Sumotori Dreams is a 96k Windows game with a complete physics engine and breakable objects, but neither the engine nor the compact code is the star attraction - its the AI that steals the show.

The sumo wrestlers in the game stumble around in a fantastically drunken fashion, accurately modelling an unintentionally hilarious dust-up between two angry frat-boys after too many tequila shots.

Implications - As the price of game consoles increase, less consumers are willing to purchase them in a time of economic recession. More are turning to free online games on websites that are more than willing to provide a cheaper, less complex alternative to the high-octane, adrenaline-filled world of Xbox and PS3's. This may create a shift in consumers' preferences for gaming, as so many households own a PC; thus, consoles may suffer unless the industry finds a more cost-efficient strategy in mass production.
