This game is based on Conway's Game of Life but is a team death-match with points to buy patterns.

With background music (move the OGG file if you don't want to listen to it).

Enjoy <3

Thanks to 31eee384 (aka the31 on IRC) for the Windows version!

PS: If you're compiling for MacOS, set CXXFLAGS=-std=c++11, the only dependency is SFML 2 RC 1. Please send me your executable so I can add it here.

Since the Windows build is broken I tried running the Linux version on my Mac. I'm not sure if that's should work or not, but just in case, here are the error messages I received:

Thanks for trying! It's normal that the Linux version doesn't work on Mac, but be sure that'll I'll manage to get all platforms compiled today or tomorrow (I don't have a Mac but I'm sure someone on IRC has one) ! ;)

Cool concept! Not quite sure how points are granted, but cells leaving a trail that you can place more cells on is a very interesting mechanic. The ambiance is nice, too. Mouse movement and placement would have been nice, but this *is* the Ludum Dare. :)

It doesn't work on my computer :/
The game runs, I can hear the music, I can see it on my task bar, but there is no way to open the window and play. I think it is the more frustrating bug I've ever seen! Congrats! (I'll come back later to play it, I hope there is a solution)

Sadly couldn't play the game :( (Windows) Music was playing but only the launch console was there.

My (windows) console window says "failed to open the audio device" and nothing else happens.

I've spent a whole day trying to fix the Windows version, and had to ask someone to do it after all (GCC bugs breaking my game, and old Windows machine, which makes things worse)...
Sorry for those who still can't play the it.
I'm also looking for someone to build a MacOS version, since I'm not a Mac owner.

I might do a gameplay video if I find the time!

Thanks for playing (or trying to) to everyone !
I'll try to play, rate and comment all your games!

Interesting version of the famous Conway's Game of Life. I see the difficulty of making such a game not too complicated. But for once, it's just too easy with all the items available, just spam the map to win. The best would be to limit the placement of items and to have an AI that puts items. Anyway, it's not a bad job for a 48h game.

I have a mac, but I have no idea how I would build it. :/
