Conway’s Game of Life in Javascript
Published by António Lopes on October 29, 2012

I know that there are probably a bunch of other implementations of the Conway’s Game of Life in Javascript out there, but I wanted to try to create a new version that included (properly enjoyable) music that would be generated by the evolution of the cells in the game.

However, the use of the Web Audio API (I didn’t want to use MP3 or WAV) for this end proved somehow useless mainly because the sounds it generates are only comparable to those of the good old days of dial-up connections. Moreover, the API is only available (for now) in Google Chrome and Mac OS X’s Safari’s latest version.

Perhaps, in the future, I’ll change it once there’s some more interesting way of doing that and that works across more browsers.

So, for now, enjoy only the visual aspect of the game.
