Iteration 1 of something that is not a general intelligence and is not the beginnings of a general intelligence will not become a general intellignece by iteration 2, 3, 4, or 5.

It's a text generator. Nothing more. It cannot perform complex tasks. It can generate simple code based on probabilities, but if you ask it to do anything remotely complex like write an optimized minecraft style block based rendering engine, it can't do it. It might try, but the code isn't going to work. A lot of time it generates pseudocode too. Like it might generate code with a function renderminecraftterrain() with no actual code for that function and then it will tell you that function should contain the code to render the terrain in plain english after the code.
