48 hours to go (11am local time)
I wake up and check the theme. Evolution. OK, fair enough. The first thought that comes to mind is clusters of little round cells, growing and evolving to more complex clusters. A bit like a rounded, 3D “Game of Life”. I don’t want a non-interactive game, though.
A round arena with cells in the middle, and the player fires “evolution rays” or maybe just a destructive “trimming laser” at parts of the growth? Hmm. I like the visual.
How might the cellular growth work? I sketch out some circles and lines, and it looks like a bad soda stick animation. I don’t know if I can make this fun.
OK, what else is there? Evolving words?
Nothing new came to me in the shower, so I started work.
