The first video game about Task generator was released in 1994.

THQ, 2K Games and MinMax Games has published most of these games

This is used to create a rather transparent illusion that other factions are actually doing something, but is in truth simple random task generation with chances of certain task types appearing based on various numbers rather than actual simulated events.

This can be used even if actual simulation takes place, however.

Contrasts with games with only a static set of tasks the player may complete, although many of the "random" tasks can actually be recycled static tasks.
