       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 to change.)

       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.)
