"How DeepMind Restored the Beauty to Chess"

"Chess masters feared that computer programs would suck the artistry out of the game, but the company’s AlphaZero plays with soul"

"What is most interesting about the videos is the unbridled enthusiasm that analysts have for AlphaZero’s style of play. At times, AlphaZero makes moves that leave the analysts baffled and mystified, but enthralled as well."

I've updated Return of Serenity with a more legible font. I've added some sound loops too for atmosphere. Hope you enjoy playing this quick little game: amirrajan.itch.io/serenity

I've updated the eligibility requirements for getting a free commercial license to DragonRuby Game Toolkit. The income eligibility has been relaxed. And I've added a bullet point for teachers, mentors, parents. You can read it all at dragonruby.org
