Tech entrepreneur Weili Dai Unveils Story Machine, A Generative AI-powered Game Engine

Chinese-American Tech investor and entrepreneur Weili Dai has announced the launch of her latest venture, Story Machine, at Game Developers Conference (GDC) today. Built by video game development studio Robot Invader, Story Machine is a generative AI-powered 2D game creation platform and engine.

According to a press release, creators can leverage the game engine’s in-built generative AI tools to generate AI art directly in Story Machine and use a context-aware user interface to create backgrounds, objects, or characters.

To lower the barrier of entry to game creation, the game engine integrates a range of AI models and automatically selects the best service to fulfill a creator’s request instead of depending on prompts. This means that the creator won’t need to become a “prompt engineer,” which may require some technical knowledge. 

The platform uses Stable Diffusion to generate anime-style game art and DALL-E to create photorealistic gaming environments. Story Machine has been in development for about a year and is expected to officially launch later this year. 

“To develop the next generation of games, creators need more than just a tech stack. They need an engine designed to take advantage of deeply integrated generative AI and make creation simple. A game engine that lets creators iterate on creativity rather than spend time fighting compatibility problems or performance regressions, and removes the need for art or programming skills,”  Gregory Love, Chief Operating Officer of Robot Invader, said in a statement.

Opening in private beta today, Story Machine is ready to be deployed in professional environments. It is the newest member of Dai’s ecosystem of hardware and software companies, which includes MeetKai, an AI and metaverse services company.

“We believe that the marriage of a game engine and generative AI is a game-changer for developers and creators of all sizes. Story Machine is a commanding new addition to our portfolio of companies that are delivering AI and Metaverse solutions to our Tier-1 global customers both at the software and, with our leadership on the semiconductor side, at the hardware level,” says Dai, Robot Invader Executive Chairwomen and MeetKai Co-Founder and Executive Chairwomen.

Dai co-founded the major semiconductor company Marvell Technology in 1995 with her husband, Sehat Sutardja, and is the only female co-founder in the industry. She was listed in Forbes’ 100 most powerful women in 2015 and has a net worth of $1.1 billion as of 2023, according to the business magazine.
