I got interested in artificial life sims and started looking for one that allowed open-ended organism design, real evolution and cool small thingies running around on the screen.  Went thrugh all links and DB was the first one that satisfied all these requirements.

Was googling A-life and came across Home of the Underdogs site. DB was the coolest sounding A-life sim there and found my way to the homepage and from there to the forum. I just like the actual fighing in DB, much cooler than watching a bunch of numbers eat another bunch.

I discovered DB very early (at the beginging DB1.0). I was searching google for Artificial life.
I'm not crazy and I'm not normal.
If I were normal, I would go crazy.

I was playing much with another art. evol. prg, where bots were made out of stiff sticks. But it was too specific, and one couldnt see into robbies' codes...  :blueblob:
Then I found (with googling )http://frontrow.fontframe.com/index.php/Science/Biology/Evolution/Software
and thus the Real One.  B)

I used google and I sometimes spend hours trying to find the ultimate artificial life program. I've tried a lot of stuff. I found DarwinBots to be most interesting right now, dispite all the bugs. Hehe. I was surprised to find this forum and that you are still working on the Darwin sim stuff. Allmost thought it was a dead project.  :D

Actuely, I was looking at new and intaresting videogames and came past one called "spore".  Since I could not get this game, I went into the forums and someone mentioned Dawrwinbots2 as to be something like spore.  So I came to have a look.
