LifeBox! Virtual life inside a beautiful wood box.

Pixelic life with a Raspberry Pi

What is a LifeBox? The LifeBox Manifesto

In this box live two pixelic entities, the blue and yellow species. These two species compete to survive and reproduce, feeding with the white mana that grows under their feet. Each species has eight configurable variables that can change its behavior. The white mana also has five parameters that determine its behavior and also rule the future of the two species that feeds. Learn the basic concepts of programming and biology being the god of these entities, varying all the parameters and seeing the consequences of your actions in the LifeBox!
