Featured Game: XPilot-AI

Xpilot-AI is a program that provides a test-bed for autonomous agent learning and/or control systems. AI systems tested on Xpilot-AI agents can to be used for agents operating in other interactive video games, in addition these tests have the potential to further research in autonomous robot learning / control systems. Xpilot is an open-source 2-dimensional space combat game that is playable over the internet, which can be configured for many varieties of game play, including free-for-all combat, capture-the-flag, space race, and team combat.

Featured Game: Galactic Arms Race (GAR)

Galactic Arms Race (GAR) is a 32-player online space action shooter with RPG elements. Unlike typical shooters with limited weapon selection, GAR has virtually unlimited weapons that are automatically generated based on the preferences of players in the game. The weapons are created by the Content-Generating NeuroEvolution of Augmenting Topologies (cgNEAT) machine learning algorithm. In GAR, players fight their way through a huge galaxy against evil aliens (or even against other players) constantly searching for more effective weapons, thus creating a literal galactic arms race.

Featured Game: Neuro-Evolving Robotic Operatives (NERO)

Pictured below is Neuro-Evolving Robotic Operatives, or NERO, a game that lets you play with adapting intelligent agents hands-on. You can evolve your own robot army by tuning their artificial brains for challenging tasks, then pit them against your friends' teams in online competitions.
