DiG stands for Digital Image Games. In the future... The machine AI obtains consciousness and over throws the human race. Humans are still around but they are few and far between. Many humans live in the slave pens of the machines. There are some tasks that the machines just don't feel is worth their time...so the humans do them...or die.
Creations tend to reflect their creators. Much of the AI that took over was based on gambling algorithms used to try to get a leg up in Vegas. As a result...deep with in the AI...their is a desire for risk. Due to the binary nature of the machines, this desire cannot be satisfied...or as soon as a process is designed by one machine it is broken by another. There for the Machines turn to humans to fulfill their lust. The developed the Digital Image Games(DiG). Humans are plugged into a neural network and engage in many contests....the prize? Less time in the torture chamber back
at the slave pens and the opportunity to dream of freedom....
There are two modes of play. One is a foot race where you play standard UT player models. You can also play in car mode. To do this, open the DiG: The Race menu from the Mod section of the menu bar. In this window check the "Play With Cars" Check Box. In car mode, each player is replaced with a hover car.
You can speed the race up by using the Game Speed Slider in the standard Practice Session/Multiplayer game menu. Car mode is really fun at a speed of 150%.
