Originally an animation project where I would teach kids (and adults!) about evolution through drawing, this project is a (very) old Unity build originally meant for Virtual Reality, but one you can play with a mouse and keyboard!

In my initial project, I get kids to draw pictures with crayon based off an original image I create. These images aren't exact, and thus 'mutate'. From there I cause mass extinctions and have the kids vote on the remainder, with this drawing starting a new generation. This continues for generation after generation, amassing hundreds of drawings.

With this demo, I took a section of time in this imaginary world (in this case, something akin to the Carboniferous on Earth) and put various plants, insects and animals that would be living at that moment in time and set them loose in a kind of living diorama.

This was originally a VR project for the early versions of the Oculus Rift, but I thought I would upload an old non-VR version for people to try. I have a Vive re-make in the works, which I may release eventually.

make a web build

hey dude this is amazing but could u make a linux build that would be amazing if u could or maybe a web one


Sorry! It's too old a project version to do anything new with, and this was the only built version I had where (mostly) everything was still working, so I decided to upload it.

so it doesn't work anymore damn it looked really cool


hello, i played your "project" and it was pretty nice. loved the music, and the colors.
but you could turn this into a really fun game if you added a few things. like being able to eat/kill other animals and a point system where you can put points into specific body parts to "evolve". 


those sound like great ideas!
