Many games have computer-controlled agents that play against a player. The behavior of these computer-controlled agents is described by means of the artificial intelligence (AI) in the game. The AI is an important component of the game, and needs to be developed carefully, and adapted regularly. This paper introduces a novel language for describing the decision making process of the AI in real-time video games. We develop a declarative, domain-specific language (DSL) embedded in the functional
