The L-seed package

[Tags:bsd3, library, program]

The players of this game will write code (the „genome“) that describes how plants (the biological type, not the industrial) will grow. The plants will grow simultaneously on the screen (the „garden“), will compete for light and will multiply. The players can not change the code of a growing plant, but they do have the chance to update their code for the next generation -- when a plant drops a seed, it will run the newest code. All in all, the game aims to be slowly paced and relaxing, something to just watch for a while and something that does not need constant attention by the players.

This package contains the haskell programs, i.e. the game simulation with the visual display. It can be used to locally test the plants.
