Evolve-a-creature Sagan-4-esque game
« on: June 13, 2011, 07:26:44 am »
Ok, I've wanted to do one of these for a while, I hope it plays out.


STATS:
Speed: Slow
Habitat: Ocean (Sunlight Zone)
Diet: Other SCO's
Size: Microscopic
Senses: N/A
We're a microscopic single-celled organism. Right now all we can do is drift, at the mercy of the ocean. What do we improve first?


(Please excuse my poor art, GIMP isn't exactly my prime device for this, but PAINT just won't cut it here.)

Wait, so the other four stats don't improve our survivability? Why the hell would we want to improve them then?
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

Great, now you just delayed the next update by a couple of months.  ;)

Ok, enough of that.

Stats:
Speed: Medium
Habitat: Ocean (Sunlight Zone)
Diet: Other SCO's
Size: Microscopic
Sences: N/A
Eventually, some Plasti (I'm calling that as a placeholder, if you can think of something better, by all means, say it.) evolved a single Flagella as a form of locomotion. This allowed it to move actively and a higher chance to run into other single celled organisms. Thus, the population increased.

(I know, cheap picture. Bite me :P)

We don't need to rely on sight. Think outside the box.

I like the box.

I feel safe in there...
Quote from: The Evil Overlords Handbook
30. All bumbling conjurers, clumsy squires, no-talent bards, and cowardly thieves in the land will be preemptively put to death. My foes will surely give up and abandon their quest if they have no source of comic relief.

Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

In a game like this you cannot win, only lose more slowly
