Bot Colony is the first game to make intelligent English dialogue with the characters an integral part of gameplay. The major innovation of the game is the ability to ask a character a relevant question in your own words, or give a relevant command, and get a cogent response or have your command executed. You play as a robot cognition specialist called in by Nakagawa Corp. to investigate the disappearance of advanced robotic sensors enabling robots to feel smell, taste, and touch. Nakagawa’s arch-competitor, the Korean KHT, managed to infiltrate Nakawaga’s sanctuary in the remote Pacific island of Agrihan, in the Marianas. You must track down their spy before it is too late. That won’t be easy: Nakagawa is a test bed for intelligent robots to be deployed as advanced colonists on missions to Mars. It is inhabited mostly by robots - and you will have to interact with them to track down the spy.

If that wasn't doctored I must save its impressive. The speech recognition combined with the interactive AI will be worth a boatload even if the game doesn't catch on, assuming its actually intelligently interpreting the player's input. I'm very intrigued, I'd love to see a basic float chart of how it goes about interpreting spoken language.

Tracking.

If you don't mind something a little overly technical you can check this out. It was a paper submitted that outlines the technology. You can also find some early tech demos on youtube.

Finished reading. I do not envy your programming staff the process of setting up the grammatical syntax or the baseline words and their synonyms to make this work. However it was a really nice read and exactly what I was hoping for. More people need to know about this gem. Thank you for sharing.
