The Game is a simple demonstration of the power of emergent behaviors. It shows how two similar sets of rules can yield dramatically different results. But are there other rules that produce different, interesting behaviors?
In the Interactive Evolution version of the game, you can use the Hunch Engine to search the space of possible rules for the game using simulated humans. Starting with a gallery of pre-defined rules, interact with the tool to create new patterns of emerging behavior by mixing up the basic game rules.
Install the Demo application if you haven’t done so, and click on the Design new games? button to run the Evolvable Game.
