Welcome!

Snowy Owl Barrow AlaskaWorlds O Wisdom (WOW) provides unique information on meaningful action: what to do, why, how, when and where, how much, and above all: who. (Or, as Wally Wowl would say: Hoo!)
What is WOW? It is a community of people who care about experience, and who want to explore values. What should one do? Why? In which conditions? We get together in order to answer these and other questions. Current WOWs include CodeWOW and LifeWOW and TaleWOW.

LifeFLOW v1.0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Happy to announce the big version 1.0 of LifeFLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

LifeFLOW digitarium lets you play with electronic creatures, as they move about their environment and evolve. A digital vivarium is essentially a virtual terrarium or aquarium. You can play with LifeFLOW on any web browser on a computer, tablet, smartphone, or any other device.

With special thanks to Avril Olachea and Dr. Adrian Bejan for art and inspiration, and gratitude to everyone who has contributed directly or indirectly.

Currently LifeFLOW works best in Firefox. It does work in other browsers, although we'll want to do further testing to improve compatibility. If you encounter any questions or comments, please get in touch! :)

Design philosophy at LifeFLOW wiki! :)

In addition to a few more software improvements in LifeFLOW, we now have a new design philosophy! :)

Keep it simple silly (KISS)! :)

At LifeFLOW, we try to make digitarium software that is fun, fast, flexible, freeing, and lots of other words that don't all begin with the letter "F"! :)

We use common, standard, open tools, like JavaScript/PHP/SVG. We use a minimum of complex external libraries. Our basic tools already contain a ton of utility, so unless we have a strong motivation for an additional tool, we prefer to keep things simple...

Rock & Roll!!! :)

LifeFLOW development! :)

Wow! :)
Looking back on LifeFLOW development so far, while looking forward to the upcoming version 1.0 release, it's amazing how far we've come already! :)
When I first started jotting down some notes, I had several inspirations in mind. A few include an idea from when I was younger and wanted to make a more biologically inspired game world to illustrate Darwin's ideas, as well as Conway's Game of Life, which is more mathematical. I suppose this falls somewhere in between, as a physics game instead of biology or math.
Today we have the following:

That already reflects a good chunk of the initial vision. Of course, there are still tons of features and creatures to improve to make it closer to that ideal, and the ideal itself evolves as we make progress. Anyways, it's quite heady to create and watch the birth and development of this fun life game!!! :)
Rock & Roll!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Future Rock!!! :)

LifeFLOW v0.9.1: user interface improvements! :)

Here is a new minor release to LifeFLOW digitarium! :)

A digitarium is way lighter and more efficient than an aquarium. A digitarium is way bigger and cooler than a regular computer game.
The "equarium" is already more fun and interesting to play with than an aquarium! :) The age of aquaria is OVER! :)
As always, you can play with LifeFLOW yourself here! :)
And here are the latest LifeFLOW demo videos:

Rock & Roll!!!!! :)

LifeFLOW v0.9!!!!!!!!!!! :)

New release, version 0.9!!! :)

This version introduces several new creatures, including a couple of variants of LifePath. The latter have different looks than previous creatures, and in one case even eat and mate! :) (Or, get eaten and reproduced...) We also now have some improvements to the game functionality..

Have a play for yourself! :)
