    Evolution - You Know What To Do

    Isn’t it time for “evolution” to win?

    If it wins, we finally get to see what kinds of games people make with the theme.

    If it wins, it’ll never again be in the voting lists.

    Go evolution, go!

      Might be worth it just to get shot of it. The trouble with Evolution is that, while it is really really cool in nature, it’s an undirected emergent process. Not good for gameplay. I suppose you could manipulate the environment to encourage certain traits to change, but it still involves a lot of waiting and little sense of agency.
      That’s why Spore turned out to be a game about levelling up weird creatures rather than anything to do with actual evolution. IMHO.
