  • SmoothLifeL

    [A crazy version][link] of [Conway’s Game Of Life][con] using floating point numbers instead of integers. The results are disturbingly organic-looking. Could be images from a blurry microscope.

    [Didn’t know this was coming][link], seems a bit overpriced at $7.99, and 350mb of space seems, likewise, excessive. I’m also not entirely sure how the pointing mechanics will work, as a lot of the targets in Monkey Island are quite small.
