My world generator/simulator blog

It's in my sig, but I figured I'd post about it here, too.

I've got a development project I'm working on that's a world generator/simulator. It would be hard to compare it directly to anything. It has elements of SimEarth, Civilization, SimCity, Crusader Kings, Populous, and other games. It's not a "game" in the sense that you have a goal. It's more of a "software toy" or a sandbox.

Anyway, I am posting about its development here: http://sagasim.gorzek.com

I absolutely welcome comments, questions, and suggestions on this project. Love to know what you guys think.

Re: My world generator/simulator blog

I think "God games" are often the most fun.

Interesting, Robert. It reminds me of the game of Life so far.

I've moved my blog to its own domain and have been updating it!

Have a look!

Always on the lookout for feedback and questions and stuff.

This sounds really, really interesting. I hope the development goes well. I've been craving a good simulator game.
