That’s so good it’s annoying.

One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves

I KNEW it was my parents’ fault!

Life can be interactive, if it allows you to create and experiment with patterns in the game.

Still waiting for that cool retro console that lets me play Progress Quest.

David Brin’s “Glory Season” brought to reality!

Neat design. It looks like something a xenoarchaeologist should be fiddling with in a sci-fi film.

It’s not a game, it’s a synthesizer based on GoL.
