Description

The Game Of Life was created in 1970 by mathematician John Conway.

It consists of a two dimensional orthogonal grid of cells, each of which being alive or dead.
Cells evolve at each turn following simple rules:

- A live cell with fewer than two live neighbours dies.
- A live cell with more than three live neighbours dies.
- A dead cell with three live neighbours becomes alive.

Highlights:

- Library of 800+ common patterns, which can be expanded.
- Customisable rules, for exploring beyond the classic Conway's rules.
- Open and save files as RLE (run length encoded).
- Highly customisable interface.
- Pattern viewer.
- Live drawing and simple drag & drop from the library.

Amazing, but you can't make the board blank

You can create a blank grid using cmd-n or through the file menu.

I just learnt about this game when the creator passed away this week

This is a very aesthetic and interesting way to interact with the Game of Life. The app is very configurable, and has a nice palette of famous patterns that are fun to play with. Definitely go look at the wikipedia page for Game of Life — there's a lot more to it than at first meets the eye
