exciting idea but this game looks like a lot of work, even to play! :(

@cauerego thanks!
it isn't that hard, did you already manage to install it?

I didn’t bother to try yet. maybe tomorrow. what concepts of AI does it teach?

Sure, let me know if you need some help during the install
Regarding your question, the game focus on teaching Javascript (in particular ES6), and in the process you learn some basics concepts of AI. Do not expect advances topics, the warrior won't learn from experiences nor evolve or something like that.
If you are aiming to learn deep AI concepts, this is not the game :)

genetic algorithms, neural networks, fuzzy logic, heuristic search

sounds very nice! I can only grasp those concepts.
do you think it makes any sense trying to skip AGI and develop some algorithm capable of going straight to ASI?

It's pretty fun. I have some ideas to improve warriorjs so it teaches more AI than it does now

as for that, have you seem codecombat or some other similar games to teach code?
also, if you want to go back on the ASI topic, maybe it helps keeping it in another room: https://gitter.im/basiux/square
