LIFE is a massively multiplayer on-chain adaptation of Conway's Game of Life, where users battle for dominance over a 1000x1000 grid. Conway's Game of Life is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970. It has been widely used to study emergent patterns and simulate complex systems in various fields.
Built on Cartesi's Optimistic Rollup solution, LIFE offers a transparent and verifiable computation environment, ensuring that the NFTs generated are trustworthy and secure. This feature is essential, as NFTs are often created in insecure and unverifiable computational settings.
Players strive to control more of the grid than their opponents by strategically placing their blocks, following Conway's Game of Life rules. The grid's state is captured in snapshots taken periodically (e.g., daily or hourly), which are then submitted to the underlying blockchain as NFTs stored on IPFS or Filecoin.
Owning an NFT representing a grid space in LIFE can be appealing for various reasons, including the ability to showcase one's strategic prowess, immortalize a unique pattern or formation, or even trade or sell the NFT to other interested parties.
- Identity Verification: Worldcoin prevents spam and maintains a fair gaming environment.
- Execution: Cartesi's Optimistic Rollup solution enables the enormous execution scope necessary for LIFE and provides a transparent and verifiable computation environment.
- Storage: IPFS is used to store grid snapshots, which are then transformed into NFTs.
