The Procedural

This project aims to create a simulator which explores the effect of different procedures applied to a virtual “primordial soup”.

The system consists of “creatures” which are born into a virtual world and try to survive by forming communities, mating and reproducing. The procedures applied, may affect the sustainability or the emergent behaviour of the simulation itself. The simulation studies how different “procedures” affect the sample population and various dynamics of the resultant system.

The software simulator is written in Processing,
