Endgame: Singularity is a free and open source science fiction strategy/simulation game from 2005 for Linux, Microsoft Windows, and Mac OS X.

Gameplay[edit]

Endgame: Singularity casts the player as a newly created artificial intelligence which attempts to survive while avoiding detection by the public and the authorities.[1] The game has two resources, "CPU" and "money". CPU is used to perform jobs that allow the AI to grow;[1] money is used to buy more CPU cycles.[2]

History[edit]

Endgame: Singularity was originally written in August 2005 by Evil Mr Henry Software (EMH Software), using the Python programming language with the Pygame library.[3] It was submitted to the first PyWeek challenge,[4][5] a competition to create a complete Python game within a week.[6] The source code is available on GitHub[3] under the GNU General Public License version 2, but other game assets are licensed under a Creative Commons license and other licenses.[7] The game is available on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.[3] Packages are available for several Linux distributions, including Ubuntu,[8] Linux Mint,[9] Arch Linux[10] and Debian.[11] Ebuilds are also available for Gentoo. [12] Third-party adaptations of the game were released for Android and iPhone under the name Endgame: Singularity II.[13][14][better source needed]

Endgame: Singularity received favorable reviews from gaming websites JayIsGames and Play This Thing.[1][2]
