Process Roulette


Process Roulette is a shell script game that you shouldn't play if you are doing anything important on your computer.

The game kills processes at random on your computer - you choose how many. Each process that is killed earns you points. You earn bonus points for killing processes that belong to other users, and a super-bonus if you kill a process owned by the root account. But watch out - if a critical process is killed and your computer crashes, or if the game kills its own process and stops, you score nothing!

The game has been tested on MacOS and Linux, it should work in any environment that has a bash shell.
