Conway's Game of Life in Ruby (gosu + chingu)

June 6, 2010

inspired by this awesome nds tracker and an old boingboing post, i decided to make an implementation of conway's game of life in ruby, using the gosu and chingu game development gems.

after finding a way round the terrible deep cloning in ruby it was incredibly painless and very interesting. i like how the initial choice of cells influences whether you have a beautiful symmetrical oscillating pattern or a horrible cancerous mess, after 100 or so generations.
