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.
