Game of ‘Hoot is a quirky little toy which we developed in a very short amount of time, in early 2015. The initial concept was that a computer might enjoy mixing Conway’s Game of Life, crossed with Tone Matrix. That way, it gets to create life, and sing! After playing with Game Of ‘Hoot ourselves, and getting distracted by it for many hours, we realised people enjoy it too!
While Game of ‘Hoot started out as a rather peculiar idea, it grew into a rather fun way of interacting with Conway’s Game of Life. It was initially created within 24 hours, and then polished for about a week.
