This Bitsy art game invites you to explore a now dormant universe of cellular automata, ala Conway's Game of Life. This piece leaves you free to explore the "ashes" left behind from the initial run cycle, identifying any unique objects, or simply admiring the clusters and constellations formed by its varied "still lives". Each object has a category name that corresponds with those used by researchers, although the conventions are largely informal.
Instructions / Tips
There is no goal this this piece, only exploration. Move to the edges of the screen to navigate to new areas of the universe. Typical playthroughs may only be a few minutes of gentle wandering - likely best experienced when in a contemplative mood.
Plays with ambient sound.
