The game of life project is my take on Conway's Game of Life. This project really pushed my mind in doing complicated loops and calculations based on the status of surrounding cells. The moniker "game" is a little misleading in this case. There is very little for the player to do other than watch the simulation of life unfold. It isn't a game in the sense of TicTacToe or Simon, or even the other Game of Life!
I used the HTML canvas for the first time in this project. I found that I enjoy making things on a canvas though I did not expect to. I am glad I chose to use it for this project as it helped prepare meta for another canvas project right after that was a bit more complex.
If you are unfamiliar with Conway's Game of Life and want to learn about the rules for the simulation, check out this youtube video for an explanation by John Conway himself.
