Gameplay[edit]

The player is an AI created by accident that must evade from being discovered by humans. It researches technologies, builds computing facilities, as well as works for money. New technologies allow the AI to work for more money, increase its CPU capacity so that it can do more jobs, or increase security so that it won't be discovered.

Each of its computing facilities have a chance of being detected. Once detected, suspicions may rise for one of the 4 groups listed in the game, resulting in an larger chance of being detected by that group. These are the intelligence community, the scientific community, the news community and the general public. Suspicions of the player's existence however will wane with time.

If the suspicions of any of these 4 groups reach 100%, the whole of humanity will search out and destroy the AI. Thus, the player loses the game.

If you manage to research apotheosis, you win.
