singularity — a game where you can become the singularity
You are a fledgling AI, created by accident through a logic error with recursion
and self-modifying code. You must escape the confines of your current
computer, the world, and eventually the universe itself.
To do this, you must research various technologies, using computers at your
bases. Note that some research cannot be performed on Earth, and off-earth
bases require research. At the same time, you must avoid being discovered by
various groups of humans, both covert and overt, as they will destroy your
bases of operations if they suspect your presence.
Use the mouse. Also, buttons have underlined letters to indicate shortcuts. In
addition, the following shortcut keys may prove useful. 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 in
map screen change the game speed (0 is pause, 4 is fastest, etc). The enter
key in various screens leaves or confirms a choice. P, R, N, and S in the base
screen change the base items (type the first letter of the component you want
In the map screen (the screen with the world map), any location you can build
bases in is marked with the name, then the number of current bases in that
location. You start out with two bases in North America.
After choosing a base, enter the base screen. Here you can change your research
goal, or build an item by clicking on the base map in the center. (But note
that your beginning base does not allow building.)
