PSP homebrew dev maxthebest has released an early version of his own homebrew version of Conway’s law, The Game of Life: Sound of Life. This version of his has one cool feature added: sound (the sound of life).

maxthebest notes that while there surely are a lot of other Game of Life brews out there already, what sets his work apart is that it’s got a bigger matrix, which can make it all the more interesting (the matrix for his work is about 2,300 cells big).

Anybow, here are the functions and controls for the game:

  • At the beginning of the game, a life pattern is randomly generated. You can renew it pressing Select.
  • You can change the pitch of the sound generated by pressing UP and DOWN
  • You can change the shape of the generated sound by pressing Square for square waves, Circle for Sin, and Triangle for Triangle.

As for future additions:

  • Possibility to create your own life pattern/edit it during the evolution.
  • Possibility to pause the evolution (and check for example how many generations have happened since the beginning)
  • Load known patterns, such as gliders, canons, or whatever.
