A junior high school class led by teacher Autrijus Tang worked together to make a Perl clone of the bot-battling game “A.I. Wars”, now available on CPAN as the Games::AIBots module.
Forgive me for filing this under “education” rather than “games”, but as a firm believer that the latter can lead to the former, seeing projects like this pleases me very much. I haven’t knowingly run into a CPAN module attributed to a classful of students before this, either.
It is a pretty cool game, too. Console and Perl/TK interfaces supported. Yay!
