Inspiration

It started as one of those random late night thoughts. What happens if you have an alarm that insults you when you snooze it? This idea of a bot insulting you stuck and it developed into "What happens if a bot insults you for your every move in a game?"

When the time came to chose between doing something useful and doing something fun - we chose fun. We developed Botsulting - a bot with 2 different games which increase your knowledge (Trivia) and logic thinking abilities (Riddle me this). What ever the outcome of your answer is, you're sure to not get the feedback you expected though. Our bot has a bit of a special attitude towards people outsmarting him and he certainly looks down on you when you get it wrong. So be careful what you answer.

WARNING: DO NOT PLAY IF EASILY OFFENDED OR MISSING SENSE OF HUMOR!

What it does

Botsulting is a chatbot with two games which can be played single or multiplayer. The first is a trivia quiz with multiple choice as well as y/n statements. The second game is a riddle which you have to find the answer to. Beware if you don't write it exactly the way the Botsulter wants it...

How we built it

While tired, full with food (3 dinners) and tired. With help of the @botfather on the Telegram platform and lots of python code. Starting with baby-steps the Botsulter is now a full grown meanie.

Challenges we I ran into

Finding enough insults with a high enough standard.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Alena: I WASN'T USELESS!!! :D Pau: SHE WASN'T USELESS!!! phew

What we learned

Alena: I still have a long way to go before fully being capable of using python and its structuring. Pau: The satisfaction after your own bot speaks his first words is priceless... the fact that those words were harsh insults is something you never forget <3

What's next for Botsulting

We're planning on implementing a multiplayer game to spot the best insult-poets among your friends. But many more possibilities are thinkable and the sky is the limit ;)
