Ai Dungeon is a fantastic piece of software that allows you to interact with an AI storyteller in any scenario you choose. Want to experience life in the apocalypse? Want to explore a water planet? Want to become a sentient fish in a world full of alligator-cyborgs? You can do it all. But they say that experiences are best when they’re shared. So how can you play AI Dungeons with your friends?

How to play with friends in AI Dungeon

Firstly, you must set up a multiplayer game – not any game can just be joined. To do that, you must click on the ‘Play’ button in the top right of the screen (for computers) or on the bottom of the screen (for mobiles). That will meet you with a menu that has five fantastic game modes to generate stories from, but the one we’re interested in is the ‘Multiplayer’ tab.

Start a new game.

When you start the game, you must choose a setting prompt from the menu, then fill out your name, and there you have it. A multiplayer game has started.

Seems simple, right? Well the problem mostly arises when people want to join games, which requires a short code. Short codes aren’t the most intuitive things to find, but in reality they are right where they should be.

In the top right corner of the screen, there will be three tab options, ‘Model’, ‘Display’, and ‘…’. Click on the last tab and look to the bottom of that manu screen. The button ‘invite friends’ will show. Click on it to receive that game’s unique 8-digit short code.

You can now invite your friends to join you on your escapades.

The short code is case sensitive so make sure your friends join exactly the same code. Also, not everyone needs to be online for the game to work – the game will always be running no matter how many people are / aren’t on it.

If someone out of the group has premium, get them to host – that way the dragon AI can be selected, offering a better multiplayer experience. Additionally, the premium player can then select the special 3rd person mode, allowing the AI to better handle more than one person. If it does make a mistake or get confused, then you can simple ‘undo’ and ‘redo’ until the AI gets it right.
