Creating believable agents that can communicate and collaborate with the player is one of the big challenges in developing computer games. We propose an architecture that uses a logic-based truth maintenance system coupled with a rule engine to create articulate agents capable of having conversations with the player. Our preliminary investigation shows that this framework can be used to develop a new style of computer game where the player actively learns through interacting with the computer characters.
