Background

I'm a 27 year old Software Developer. I first started RoboCode in 2005 after realizing what I really liked best about games was developing a system that would win. I would start a turn-based game following mechanical rules, then if I thought I could improve my system I would start all over & try again. Then once I had a winning system I'd play the game through once or twice, feel happy, then get bored, often after mind-numbing sessions of clicking buttons with little thought. When that self-awareness hit I thought, "I should find a game where I can write my own AI & let it play out!" If I remember right, it was my first google search that turned up RoboCode, and it was a perfect fit. Too perfect, as many addicts can agree.
