Unleash Your Creativity and Grow Your AI Skills at Atomic Games 2023

We are thrilled to announce Atomic Games 2023! This educational AI game programming competition promises to challenge all college students who dare to code.

Atomic Games 2023: The Basics

The Atomic Object Office in Grand Rapids will host this all day programming event on Saturday, Nov. 4. If you have a passion for code, a hunger for knowledge, and a competitive spirit, this is your chance to shine. And the best part? You don’t need to start with any code! By the end of the day, you’ll have a fully functional game-playing artificial intelligence.

Our impressively nerdy app, website, and game developers are excited to share their expertise with you as you build your game player. This day-long event will be powered by the collective knowledge and creativity of these seasoned developers. You’ll have the chance to learn from them, team up with a partner, and put your skills to the test in a high-energy environment. We’ll announce the specific game you’ll be programming on the day, adding an element of surprise and spontaneity to the competition.

Rules & Resources

At Atomic Games 2023, we strongly believe creativity thrives when resources are abundant. We encourage students to leverage all tools at their disposal to build their game-playing AIs. Use the power of the internet for research, tap into the capabilities of large language models like ChatGPT, gain insights from the coaching and guidance of our developers, and harness the strength of pair programming teamwork.

This event is not just about who can code the best but about who can adapt, learn, and collaborate effectively. We want you to explore, experiment, and, most importantly, enjoy the process. Remember, every tool you use adds another layer of depth to your learning experience and brings you one step closer to creating an extraordinary AI game bot.


The stakes are high, but so are the rewards. The winning team, consisting of two members, will walk away with a cash prize of $500. This is not just about the prize money, though. It’s an opportunity to test your skills, learn from the best in the business, and potentially kick-start your career in software. So, gear up for Atomic Games 2023 – it’s game time! Mark your calendar, gather your code-loving friends, and prepare for a day of learning, competition, and fun. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create!

We’re excited to extend this opportunity to all current college and university students pursuing computer science or a related major. If you’re intrigued by AI and game development, this is your chance to dive into the deep end and come out with a tangible, impressive project. Registration for Atomic Games 2023 opens today, so don’t delay!

This is more than a competition; it’s a chance to immerse yourself in a rapidly evolving field, connect with like-minded peers, and learn from seasoned professionals.
