[link] Creating Life: Conway’s Game of Life

Posted 14 September 2012 - 08:20 AM


A cute little hour long excursion into this fond game concept and basic XNA'ness.


Conway’s Game of Life is a cellular automaton that was devised in the 1970s by a British mathematician named, well, John Conway.

Given a two-dimensional grid of cells, with some “on” or “alive” and others “off” or “dead”, and a set of rules that governs how they come alive or die, we can have an interesting “life form” unfold right in front of us. So, by simply drawing a few patterns onto our grid, and then starting the simulation, we can watch basic life forms evolve, spread, die off, and eventually stabilize.
