    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. :)

    No seriously, this is a fascinating project!

    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. :)

    Is it like cyber citizens or nationstates?

    Hm, maybe a little. Mine will have more detail, I think.

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