Generative AI is fast becoming a tool you can't shy away from, and indie developer Dinosaurs Are Better isn't try to run and hide but is instead experimenting with creating a game using Midjourney and Adobe Firefly, and many other AI apps, along with established software such as Blender, to make its new game. So is an AI art workflow the future of game development?

While the team of three behind the point-and-click adventure game Echoes of Somewhere are keen on trying AI, many large game studios and publishers are still hesitant to use generative AI to create games. A lot of AAA game studios have banned AI for fear of copyright infringements for example, but for small teams and indies it seems AI is a good way to get ahead.
