NERO is a game of training and battle. These movies are recorded from both parts of the game. The behavior in these movies was discovered by rtNEAT evolution in real time; none was scripted. Novel strategies and behaviors emerge on their own to fit the requirements of each task.

A 5-minute introduction to NERO 2.0 and the Territory Mode
