dc.description.abstract Procedural Content Generation (PCG) has been used extensively in video games as both a cost saving measure and a means to increase replayability. Evolutionary computation is an approach to PCG that has the ability to continually create new content tailored to particular users. This paper presents the Infinite Art Gallery, a game that uses established methods of evolving art with Compositional Pattern Producing Networks to allow users to explore a world of art tailored to their preferences. From a first-person perspective, users explore room after room of evolved paintings and sculptures. Each painting is a doorway that leads to a new room with art derived from a selected painting and sculpture in the previous room. Users have an inventory of collected paintings that can be used to return to old favorites, and they can influence the generation process with special item pickups. To gauge user response to the game, a human subject study was conducted with 30 users. Average overall enjoyment was 4.2 on a 5 point scale, indicating a general appreciation of the game. However, users also identified several areas in which the game could be improved, which will be pursued in future work. en_US
