Ken Thompson has made a number of significant contributions to
computer chess, but I'm not familiar with chess programs that ran on
early Unix. The earliest and most influential game that originated on
Unix was probably rogue, which was included in 4.2 BSD. Another early
and influential game was Colossal Cave Adventure, but that didn't run
on Unix, AFAIK.
