Big List of Programming Games
« on: April 27, 2006, 12:32:46 AM »

This is a big list of programming related games like Core War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_Wars).

I'd love for us to invent one here at DC.

battlefield game of course, where people can have code-driven entities compete.

That's what I thought, but I wanted to be clear....

OK so we need a strategy session.  Things to consider:

Do we want to make it fair as in rock/paper/scissors - each item has a 1/3 chance to win, 1/3 chance to lose and 1/3 chance to null effect.

Is is turn based or paralell?

Is it a virus type/takeover game or battle-bots type - kill or be killed?

I'm sure there is something I'm missing...
