The first game has begun!

Here are your creatures:

Spoon Deer - A very strange mammal. While it does seem quite harmless on the surface, it packs quite a punch. The "spoon" of the animal is its sensory organ and it also has a way of discharging strong electrical pulses. It uses this to take down Sli, then feeds on them with its retractable mouth.

Sli - Bipedal Mammal. A docile creature. It feeds on Dao and roams in small packs. They require a lot of vegetation to maintain their size. They stick to the rivers and coast lines where food is plentiful.

Dao - A simple plant. It has a strong root that reaches down into the ground, punching apart the hard rock. As the sun is plentiful, it grows prolifically near the rivers edge. It releases a small flower, wind pollinates, then a cluster of small seed-tufts drift to find new homes

Crunt - River-dwelling mollusk. It has a soft body and is very opportunist. If can climb on land when the sun is gone and feed on carrion. It will eat plants as a survival tool, but prefers to scavenge. In lean times, they turn to cannibalism.

The Tetrashell Evolves from the Tetracrunt. The addition of a fourth limb gives this creature the strength and mobility to carry around a shell which protect it from predators.

Welcome one and all to /evogames/ - the slow moving MS paint game where we evolve creatures using nothing, but our own autistic imagination.

As this game is a little free flow, there do need to be some rules set. These are board-wide rules and individual games may eschew or add rules to these. But they will remain consistent through all games.

A) - Keep the amount of active games to a minimum. Too many games means the few players we have are spread too thin and people lose interest quickly.

B) - Always save as .png, this makes images easier to edit.

C) - Don't worry about being a shitty artist. The idea is more important than the image.

D) - Stay active. Even 2 images a week is better than none. We accomplished a lot over at /evol/ a few years back. Same can be done here.

So how do these games work? There are really only 2 rules:

1) Take an image, alter it somehow, save as .PNG

2) Post the image with a short description on what has changed

You should also name your creature, you can keep the old name or give it a new one. New names tend to signify a splinter-species. This thread does not count as a game.

There are a few other guidelines for playing.

> If a previous player made a change (added eyes for example) the next evolution should not remove the same change. It can breed out over time, but allow the species to splinter and grow first.

> There is no winning, you do not "own" these creatures. The point of this game is to have a good time and help build a universe. If you're a control freak we don't want you playing.

> Please get my approval for a new game. We need to build on what little we have, Rome fell because it spPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Here we can discuss anything related to the game or just shoot the shit.

I love feedback from players on how I can make this game better.

I'll start - how scientific do you like your critters? I prefer the right-brained approach to not put as many limits on the game as to open up more creativity.

Thank. It's supposed to be a mix between a spoon and DNA strain.

There is a second game already that diied. Perhaps we can rejoin it? it involves 4 basic types of cells. Unless you want to start a new game, but there is a second game here that stopped. Perhaps we can just start playing it again. I will post the link soon i just have to get it.

For ideas for next game's starting creatures I think we should have something insect-like and maybe something bird-like. Another blob creature like the Crunt would also be good.


It seems that game died for the reasons mentioned here >>442

Does everyone use a mouse to draw or a stylus and tablet?

On a recently formed planet, some rocks have became organic matter and where them hit by lighthing and radiation just right. Life was born.

This will be different from our usual evo games, all we have are the basic parts of a cell to start with floating around. Unite some of them into a proper cell (or evolve them first) and start the cycle of life.

This game will require a quick read on jewkipedia, I also recommend playing Cellcraft.

Now, in this hot ocean with a increasing level of organic matter, this lone cell will eat, breed, and evolve.

Tangentially related to the board topic but there's a free game called Species. You control the evolution of creatures in an ecosystem. It crashes a lot and it's a bit broken but it's fun.

Unfortunately I don't have time for a game like that, but I have watched a few videos of people playing it. Seems fun as hell, bugs included.

I have the game. The latest version is 0.10.0, but there is a 0.11.0 in progress. Unfortunatly for me, since its on Steam, the newer version will most likely cost money, but 0.10.0 is free

Today I learned two things: there is DRM for books. It is really easy to crack. Here's The future is Wild by Dougal Dixon.

How it all starts, 4 different species of cells in a hot ocean.

No matter what happens the basic algae will not go extinct.

The herbivores evolve pronounced cilia to speed their escape from the predators.

The predator evolves a layer fat around it which it uses to maintain its body temperature in the deeper, colder sections of the ocean. with access to the this depth the predator can now hunt the scavenger.

The scavenger adopts a donut shape. It uses a thin membrane to catch sinking plant and animal matter in order to collect more food.
