Primeval Labs - BMacIntosh - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Requires XNA Game Studio 4.0 Framework Redist
"Primeval Laboratories" is a shootemup or "bullet hell" game in which you must fight sets of generated enemies. However, each generation adapts and learns from the previous one, and the enemies continue to become more difficult through this process.
The biggest feature of the game is the procedural, genetic creation of the enemies. Every stat, behavior, and weapon is coded in a genome that is manipulated by a genetic algorithm to create the subsequent generation. Hopefully you will see many interesting and amusing generations as you play!
You can export enemies to a text file in the pause menu, then share them with others or breed them from the main menu.
In theory it plays better with an XBox controller, but that's completely untested.
