Arthouse Games

I was amazed on how small of a file this game is. There needs to be more games that have 'genetic' posibilities. The poisoning metaphore didn't take long to hit home. Play long enough and the whole island is poisoned for everybody and you all eventually die off. I'm so glad this is open source. I might try to modify this with even more genetic possibilities such as have creatures that act more/less revengeful etc and maybe poisoning that doesn't last forever but has a timelimit so the game can self sustain and watch a civilization form and evolve to the best ratios of like/dislike/revenge/promiscuous/reserved tendancies and seeing what those might be.
