Welcome to Oyun

Oyun is a program you can use to run tournaments between various strategies playing normal-form games such as the prisoner’s dilemma. The classic work on such tournaments is Robert Axelrod’s The Evolution of Cooperation, and Oyun takes much inspiration from such tournaments.

Oyun allows you to create players, using a simple finite state machine syntax, and these players then compete in tournaments – either one-off, round-robin tournaments or “evolutionary” tournaments in which strategies compete to increase their proportion in a “population” over a number of generations.
