More Seeds - an Artificial Life EcoSystem

Post by jph_wacheski » Fri May 02, 2014 1:12 pm

New project, based on an old one. More than 10 years ago I made a thing called Seeds using GameMaker. Recently I was asked for the source code for that, alas,. probably lost on a stolen computer. So I just remade it is ZGE! This took about 10 days. (I only get a couple hours a day to work on this stuff)

I am trying out itch.io for distribution so you can get a free copy from this link, or just buy me a beer and pay the $3!

The system monitors d/l so I will test revoking this free link after a few ppl get it. itch.oi is a lot simpler to work with than Desura,. I never really liked the whole having to use their buggy app to download stuff from there anyhow.

I was little bit uncertain what to do with it, but when observed the rules - who eats who - I played many minutes. Not only looks cool but is also funny! Do you plan to transform this artificial life simulator to a game with some challenges?

Yes it is a tad odd, and takes a little observation to learn it's peculiarities.

Not really interested in making a "game" from this,. although many interesting ideas for other games have be generated playing with it! More games will come.

I am planing to rip the sound out and build the Screen Saver version,. and a some how limited Demo version, to post over at itch.io.

After that I have an idea for a similar production,. but more mech/grid based to facilitate a more rhythmic/musical soundscape. Again, less of a game and more of a sandbox of AI interactions,. I just find this type of thing interesting I guess.

UPDATE; Screen Saver and FREE demo are now available.
