A wargaming system that uses a machine learning AI is coming this year

Call it a tale of two wargames: General Staff, a new wargaming system built to test the abilities of a tactical machine learning AI, will be coming out this year - and it's thanks in part to the recent launch of Grand Tactician: The Civil War. All General Staff needed was a little Unity.

The developer of General Staff, a computer scientist named Ezra Sidran, ran a Kickstarter campaign to help fund development of the historic battle simulation game in 2018, after having worked on it for more than two years. Sidran had already designed and produced several commercial wargames, such as The War College: Universal Military Simulator. He'd also had research into tactical artificial intelligence funded by DARPA, the US military's advanced research and development agency.

Sidran had hit a bit of a slog with General Staff recently, however. While the nuts and bolts underpinning the game were largely complete, he found that tools he was using to create the game engine itself weren't ideal for the task. He was writing in C#, using Windows Presentation Foundation - it had worked well for his Army Editor, Map Editor, and Scenario Editor programs, but it wasn't visually oriented enough to accomplish what he wanted for the game engine.
