Original post


Some years ago there was a very cool game in the old forum about evolving your species and thriving.
I found this gem, read it all and was excited to play with other people.
The summary of what happens is:

  1. You start with a singlecelled eukaryote with nothing more;
  2. You choose a mutation/adaptation to evolve (like: I want vacuoles);
  3. I roll the dice and events and say what happens;
  4. Repeat 2 and 3 until someone turns sentient.

I can manage up to 15 species :slight_smile: Each player can have up to 2 species.

This is the second time I try doing this game. The first time, with my friends and acquaintances, just 2 really tried playing the game and the others were procrastinating or simply stoped participating.

If there is at least 5 people interested that would comprimise playing once or twice a week I will make the rules in English to people to play :3
Also, I accept suggestions about plataforms to use like telegram, whatsapp, discord or others since the forum is kind of funky to use.

It allows for symbiosis and also allows for a emergency backup

Two is fun if you would like to test two different gameplays like an animal and a plant. Also, some kind of cool interaction like crows and wolfs that hunt together (in the late game)

Also how will non-player species evolve?

I will control 2 for now, though if more players want to join and some species need to drop I’ll happily just do 1.

There will be two kind of NPCs, one that evolve and votes like you (my species that will be a primary producer) just in case no one wants to be a plant and NPCs that spawn in events and get random evolutions every x turns just to keep up with the players. x is to be determined
