Could the future of game design lie in simple conversation? That’s the vision outlined by Austin Copps in a recent Medium article that glimpses a creativity revolution driven by AI.

You could say AI expertise runs in the family—Copps is the son of Dave Copps, CEO and co-founder of Dallas-based Worlds, an AI platform for building the industrial metaverse

As a solution architect at Worlds, Austin Copps recently explored how natural language interfaces like ChatGPT are transforming game design—and potentially every creative field—by turning ideas into fast reality. No more wrestling with complex software or coding languages.

Today, designers can simply describe their games to an AI assistant that handles the technical execution, according to Copps.

“In the ever-evolving world of game design, the introduction of GPT interfaces as a way to code and create with natural language promises to bring about a revolution of epic proportions in all industries,” Copps writes.

Copps sees these conversational platforms “democratizing creativity” by removing historic barriers like software mastery or coding expertise. Soon, anyone with an ingenious idea can be a master designer, regardless of technical skill.

It’s a future where creativity flows freely, no longer bottled up by the constraints of learning archaic tools.

“By creating a powerful connection between the English language and code,” he writes, GPT interfaces make game design accessible to a much wider range of people, no matter how technically skilled they are.

The result? A revolution that can unleash creativity, reduce entry barriers, and foster a more diverse community of game designers worldwide.

And Copps sees it accelerating creation far beyond game design. 

“In this GPT-interface driven world of the future, traditional barriers to mastery are crumbling,” he writes, “allowing anyone with creativity and vision to become a master of their chosen field without the need to invest months or even years in learning complex tools.”
