Sketch-based retrieval is a technique that supports the design of behaviour for game characters by reusing previously designed behaviours. Most techniques for specifying behaviour for game characters use some kind of graph-based formalism to represent such behaviour. Through graph-matching techniques, sketch-based retrieval allows to use any intermediate graph generated along the design process, a sketch of the final behaviour, as a query to retrieve similar behaviours from a library of complete behaviours. In this paper we describe the design and results from an experiment designed to measure to what extent having a library of reusable behaviours accessed through sketch-based retrieval can speed-up the behaviour design process in the Soccerbots game.
