Welcome to Mystery Island! The island is in the tropical region - so there is a lot of rain and heat. A meteor caused a large impact on the island, and it brought with it 3 very strange creatures:

Shro - An animal with plant leaves. It's hard to say exactly what a Shro is. It's anchored in the ground by a strong "root" made of flesh. It is a vertebrate with dark flesh as it is exposed to a lot of sunlight. It has leaves that reach out for energy from the sun. It can wiggle small muscles in its body, but only possesses true movement in its infant stage. A mature Shro will drop off small infants that creep across the landscape, if they are not eaten their limbs eventually root in place and the cycle begins again.

Hu-Mut - This creature feeds on the leaves of Shro using its finger-like mouth parts. It walks around in small packs, moving around on its large broad limbs. It is a clumsy creature.

Nep - The Nep seems like a lame creature, until its tongue is exposed. It cannot move very fast, but it often hides near Shro, waiting to shoot its large tongue at approaching Hu-muts. Once it grabs one, it swallows them whole after crushing their bones with its strong tongue. After a long period of digestion, it will be ready for a new meal.

In case you haven't already guessed it, these were once human. What happened to them? That's the mystery of mystery Island!First one to draw a dick gets banned.

Some Shro offspring have evolved into the Spud. About the size and consistency of a potato, they will eat just about anything. Their particular characteristic is that they


like nothing else. While usually consuming dead plant and animal matter as well as detritus and faeces; in large enough swarms they will like locusts from hell attack, kill, and consume live creatures (plant or animal) as well.

Way to the south of the continent, on the bowl of the "spoon" there is a great chasm. It gets dry here, so very very dry. But, life has found a way to survive nonetheless. Introducing our new creatures:

Oiie - A very important plant. We only see heavy rains for a few weeks of the year, and when the ground floods, Oiie soak it all up and store that beautiful liquid in their tubers. The vegetative stalk grows slowly over the rest of the year, but it can form tall sturdy plants over time. It spreads underground through its tubers.

Wern - It's hard to say exactly what a Wern is. It has no bones and it can barely be said to have skin. They move very slowly, if at all, across the landscape and are often found partially buried under ground. Their fluid-filled bodies grow algae (both red and green) and it seems they partially feed off this, though their blood seems to get mixed up with the red algae. In times of deep hunger and thirst, their needle will probe Oiie and drain them. Algae production always ramps up heavily after a feeding like this.

Simplapod - A strange arthropod that seems to be made from the soil and dirt itself. They burrow during dry seasons, coming out to feed on young Oiie stalks mostly at night.

Eiyr - A bird-like creature. It lacks eyes and has massive ears to listen for its prey, though this doesn't benefit them in flight. They hunt at night for simplapods, hence their lack of sight. The Ears also work as cooling fans during especially dry spells. They will feed on Wern, but are generally wary of them.

Welcome, friends, to the Dry Spoon!

The niggapod has developed a taste for Oppai and has evolved it's forelimbs into basic grabbers which it uses to squeeze the nutrient fluid from the Oppai at will. These claws also provide some climbing ability to assist the niggapod in escape from the Eiyr family.

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.

I think this. If you wanna switch it up to something different, add the changes over multiple generations until you end up with a fully different creature.

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.

Some predators evolve flagellum to chase after herbivores. The layer of fat around their body is quickly burned for energy as serves a new purpose as storage. It still protects them from heat, but it's burned way too quickly to allow them access to the depths where scavengers dwell.

This subspecies was named hunter because I'm bad with names.

>High magic? Grimdark?

This sounds really cool. Maybe something post-apocalyptic too.

>Human-like beasts?

I also had an idea that I got from an excellent Sci-Fi book about evolution by Olaf Stapledon named Last and First Men. At one point in the book, humans who were genetically modified to withstand the harsh conditions of another planet have evolved into various different forms of wildlife and basically became human-based animals and plants on the new planet.

Also, this might be changing the game too much, but since evolution is adaption to your environment, what if some players are in charge of constantly changing the environment too? Not sure exactly how it would work though, maybe by basing it on the type of claywars game that anons are playing on /int/?

47a498 No.634


A changing environment sounds cool, not sure how we pull that off or if it even changes the evolution dynamic. Never heard of claywars, maybe I'll try and find it.

I like the idea of human-like beasts. Maybe we could all compete for sentience.


Another idea to play off this could be that the creatures are tools used by a sentient being. So the creatures wouldn't be self-aware per se, but we could still work in the evolution mechanic.

Another idea I really liked and tried to once run a game on was the evolution theory presented by some greek guy I can't remember the name of. He believed body parts used to just roll around until they combined with another part. Eventually they formed creatures. So his theory basically postulates that eyeballs, arms, fingers, tongues, etc would just creep around looking for something to join up with.

So I'm going to make a new game soon. Maybe Wednesday or Thursday. So if you got some more ideas, feel free to throw them my way!

This is basically Clay Wars. They put a territory on the map and simulate wars and various other events. In our case, it won't be nations on the map but various biomes and stuff.

I suggest another simple game with an incredibly mountainous climate. We focus on high altitude life.

So Looking back is hard on this, especially because it has been so long and I feel I never really did justice to these games. I had a lot of free time back then and didn't use it very well.

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.

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.
