Rats of the Maze

The year is 2048.

Thirty years ago we outsourced the mundane running of our lives to Machines. Machines that learn. The Machines learnt too well.

All computing resource on the planet has been consolidated in an immense Maze hewn out of solid rock.

No humans are permitted in The Maze, but the warm glow of it’s reactors make it an ideal home for millions of giant Rats.

Your mission is to enter The Maze and deactivate the systems that power The Machines.

No human has ever returned from The Maze of the Rats.

Rats of the Maze is an arcade simulation.

The talk will be a journey through the theory and technique of programming radioactive maze-solving rats that seek human flesh — a journey from the very foundations of computer memory through to the algorithms used to create and solve mazes, wrapped up in unique hand crafted vector graphics running in the browser.
