Hi everyone! I'd like to share my very first PICO-8 game, Picoworld! It's a cart for
simulating artificial life (ALife)! Spawn different particles, define their interaction rules, and
see them come to life! It's a good environment for observing emergent phenomenon and play around
with some simple ALife rules.

You can check out more detailed instructions in the itch.io page.
If you discovered interesting patterns, feel free to comment and attach a GIF below.
Don't forget to screenshot the config that generated it!

What does this have to do with artificial life?

@kollumos the simulation itself is an example of an artificial life process. From a technical standpoint, it simulates an attractor/repulsion technique similar to molecules, thereby creating emergent behavior in the particles.

@kollumos looks like someone just outted themself on not knowing about Conway's game of life
