Conway's Game of Life (RIP)

The mathematical genius, John Conway, behind Conway's Game of Life just passed away. So I wrote this Conway's Game of Life in Basic as homage.

How do you play!?

Wilke000 (346)

But HOW do you play @TheForArkLD, like what are the rules, what do you do, etc

I used to have an app for this but I forget the name...

@amasad Oh, a quick question - why do you code in BASIC?

amasad (2395)

@DynamicSquid it's fun for these small things. Can you make it in nearly 40 lines of code in other languages?

DynamicSquid (2254)

@amasad That's a good point, I could maybe try in Processing, but it's going to be way over 40

DynamicSquid (2254)

This game is actually pretty fun once you plug in random values, but I heard that Conway actually hated this game. Maybe he had a feud with the creator?

@DynamicSquid conway was the creator - he said he hated it because people always focused on this and not his other accomplishments.

@DynamicSquid didn't realize that until after i posted the comment
