About Wit Szostak (for culture.pl)
A chess playing program, developed since 2011. It requires a graphical user interface (i.e. Winboard, Arena, ChessGui, TarraschGUI). Playing strength and style are adjustable. Rodent hovers around 50th place on CCRL and CEGT rating lists. Source code is available under GPL 3.0 licence. Originally Rodent was based on Sungorus by Pablo Vazquez.
During Rodent's development, a lot of effort has been put into playing style. As a result, it "understands" game plans in some of the closed positions, i.e. those resulting from King's Indian Defence. Future versions will be supplied with even more knowledge of this kind.
More info and files to download are available at Rodent's website.
