The Artificial Life World of Chromaria


This is the homepage for Chromaria, an experimental platform that allows the exploration of evolutionary theories in an intuitive and visually engaging way. Chromaria was introduced in the ALIFE '14 publication Identifying Necessary Conditions for Open-Ended Evolution through the Artificial Life World of Chromaria. Individual Chromarians must explore the world and find a suitable place to plant themselves. The world can easily be varied to make it easier or harder for Chromarians to accomplish this task. Our most recent paper investigated How the Strictness of the Minimal Criterion Impacts Open-Ended Evolution.
