Endgame: Singularity is a science fiction strategy/simulation game. The interface style is similar to an older hacking simulation, Uplink by Introversion Software.[original research?] The game has two resources, "CPU" and "money." Money is used to construct new bases of operations, along with CPU, which is also used to research various topics (ranging from arbitrage to astronautics), and earn money. As more technologies are unlocked, more profitable jobs can be done, and, a greater amount of CPU devoted to a task will quicken its completion, or rate at which it is performed.

Endgame: Singularity casts the player as a newly created artificial intelligence attempting to evade detection long enough to transcend the physical reality, achieve technological singularity and become immortal. The game ends if the public or intelligence, scientific, or news communities become too suspicious of the player's activities. Certain structures and technologies can reduce the probability that a certain group will realize the player's actions.

Written in the Python programming language and using the Pygame library, the game is released under the GPL and is available as a package for Ubuntu and Debian GNU/Linux. It has also been tested on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X.
