I ran into this little blurb on the Multiwinia website that spoke of the story behind Multiwinia:
"Long ago a computer scientist called Dr Sepulveda created a beautiful digital world existing entirely within a computer network of his own invention.
This world was called Darwinia and it was inhabited by a peaceful, law-abiding digital life-form called the Darwinians.
As the years wore on the Darwinians became ever more aggressive. They divided into factions, squabbling over Darwinia’s limited natural resources.
Tribes began to roam the fractal voids hell bent on each other’s destruction, drunk on power and unswerving in the pursuit of world supremacy.
Far and wide, they became known as the Multiwinians…."
It mentions nothing about the Virus...
but my thought of the moment is this: Wouldn't Dr. Sepulveda step in and use his God-like influence over the Multiwinians to stop them fighting? Would he feel compelled to work behind the scenes and stop the aggression of the multiwinians (as "God"), or would he just despair in the fact that his "children" have finally discovered war and are fighting one another?
Of course, Sepulveda help them if the Darwinians destroy some of the soul-sustaining structures that keeps them recycling in the world...
I've heard of no SP component to Multiwinia, but I wonder if that issue will be resolved in the manual?
