My first ever PICO-8 creation, spent about 2 days on it.
Conway's Game of Life, made in PICO-8.
Place/Destroy with O
Pause/Play with X
While paused you can draw your own patterns and watch how they evolve.

I think what I'd like to see, whomever wants to tackle it, is someone do the CONWAY game of life yet also have a tutorial and history mode for it.
Not just how the LIFE function works, what patterns create what new patterns, but an explanation into its background, development, implementation, and application in today's world.
I have not seen any rendition for any platform on this measure, amplitude, and depth of Conway's Life - yet. Pico-8 could definitely be the first, not just to enjoy LIFE - but to understand it.
