Conway's Game of Slime Creatures

Play it here

A cross between Conway's Game of Life and the classic slime monster.

You (the "@") count as a "lit" cell for the purpose of the simulation.

I set myself a target of 42 minutes to make this, from creating a new project to having it published online and writing this blog post.

A bug in my life algorithm caused me to go a little over schedule but still, not bad for about an hour I think.

I find it satisfying to be able to walk over to and mess up those still lifes.
