A Bibliography of Programming Games

The Programming Games Bibliography is an attempt to compile a complete list of articles / papers on the subject. A Programming Game is played by writing programs to compete against each other, typically by attempting to disable opponents in the memory of a virtual computer or by controlling simulated battle robots.

Please help complete the list by leaving a comment if you remember an article not listed, even if you can only recall vague details. :-)
