Life Simulation Repository

A compilation of interesting life simulation projects.

Blue Brain Project

“Reconstructing the brain piece by piece and building a virtual brain in a supercomputer—these are some of the goals of the Blue Brain Project.”

Conway’s Game of Life

“The Game of Life, also known simply as Life, is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.”

“Daisyworld, a computer simulation, is a hypothetical world orbiting a star whose radiant energy is slowly increasing or decreasing. It is meant to mimic important elements of the Earth-Sun system, and was introduced by James Lovelock and Andrew Watson in a paper published in 1983 to illustrate the plausibility of the Gaia hypothesis.”

Note that there are several recreations of the Daisyworld simulation available online.

Human Brain Project - Simulation Platform

“The Brain Simulation Platform will use parallelised versions of the well-established Neuron, STEPS and NEST simulators and will exploit simulation workflows and tools developed by EPFL’s Blue Brain Project.”

“OpenWorm is an open source project dedicated to creating a virtual C. elegans nematode in a computer.”


“SimAnt: The Electronic Ant Colony is a 1991 life simulation video game by Maxis and Maxis’s third product, focusing on ants.”

“SimLife: The Genetic Playground is a computer game produced by Maxis in 1992.[1] The concept of the game is to simulate an ecosystem; players may modify the genetics of the plants and animals that inhabit the virtual world. The point of this game is to experiment and create a self-sustaining ecosystem.”
