Doesn't it look VERY familiar ? :wink:
Especially:
research project involving simulated Darwinian evolutions of virtual block creatures. A population of several hundred creatures is created within a supercomputer
:D

And: http://www.red3d.com/cwr/papers/1994/sab94.html - basic virii concept ? :D

It's called inspiration. Plus Darwinian is kind of a common word in evolution terminology.

Yup, I know, thats why there is a " :wink: " in there...
It was just a bit fun to find something not only related to "evolution game", "virtual creatures", "zero player game" or GOL...etc. (Darwinia's climate inspirations) but also very simillar visually :D

For God's sake - I'm not really that kinda idiot...

And that was made in 1994!
I wonder what could be done now?

EDIT: Oh, yeah. A game called Spore...
However, Introversion would make some kind of a game by using about the same objets similar to the first simulation.
