Thetaball is an authentic digital sport with challenging, physics-based gameplay and lifelike AI. Each of the game's 256 robotic players is a distinct individual, created by a process of simulated evolution; because the bots have co-evolved within a complex physical environment -- both cooperating with and competing against one another -- their behaviors are diverse, robust, and lifelike. The end result is a game with all the challenge and re-playability of a real-world sport.

About the Engine
Generator is a specialized 2D game engine based on Evolutionary Robotics, a technique for the automated creation of simulated robots. The engine provides a C++ framework for generating populations of such robots and deploying them in a completed game. It also includes a heavily optimized, glitch-free physics module for simulating the environments in which the robots interact and evolve. Thetaball is the first game built on the Generator engine; more are planned.

I was imagining a halo-like world with realistic environments, realistic distinct (as you said) looking people running around that evolved through mating, with realistic actions and thinking. A new type of sport. Then I click the image and am like O.O

It's just a flat, 2D black background with some disk that move around.

Well, I'm sorry it didn't live up to what you imagined.

It's a form of digital soccer or Futbol and appears very smooth and nicely done. Nice find Freddy!
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
