My game is about connection between the player, the cellular automaton (Conway’s Game of Life) and a world of a simple bacteria.
This is a zero-player game. This is not a causal game for kids, it’s casual game for geeks :)

This is a zero-player game. 
It’s a connection between the player, the computer science cellular automaton ( Conway’s Game of Life ) and a world of a simple bacterias.



  • Each bacteria has it’s own “brain”.
  • The brain is a simple simulation of Conway’s Game of Life
  • Player can modify it by adding active cells. Player can add 10 cells at the beginning. Each 10 game cycles is given another cell.
  • In the brain if active cells extends 45% the bacteria will multiply – new bacteria will show.
  • If the brain has no active cells bacteria dies.
  • The “movement” of cells in brain cause movement of the bacteria. So if there is no movement the bacteria will stand still.

Have fun :)
