A game where you code the rules...: 1/7/2017 01:42:25

Hey all! I'll just read off what was written on the page:

This is a story about an ant who lives on a tiled floor. The tiles can only be 2 colors, black or white. If the ant walks over a black tile, the ant turns left and that tile is painted white. However, if the ant walks on a white tile, it turns right and the tile is painted black. The ant walks around in a seemingly chaotic pattern.
Now, fast forward a couple thousand generations. The seemingly chaotic pattern is now a highway. At this point, the ant realizes it can do anything and his mind is open to new colors and ways of life.
Now, you can be the one create the rules of the game. What patterns will you find? What will the ant paint? What is the meaning of life? Most of these questions will be answered soon.


I had just published this before I read https://www.warlight.net/Forum/227732-programming-languages and now I regret not putting some kind of joke in my pseudo programming language.

Here's the inevitable highway:

Here's a sneak peek of the code. You do this in any text editor. This one has syntax highlighting because I made this template in Notepad++.

I hope you all enjoy, post some of the patterns that you make here, and ask questions if you have any!

The ant realizes its 2017 and changes its gender abruptly to keep up with the latest trends and gets a non-natural hair color
