Sundays are for sunshine pouring in through the window. I am so looking forward to summer this year. To pass the time I‚??ve been reading the internet. Here‚??s some of the stuff I found.

Here‚??s an article (http://www.develop-online.net/features/1537/Games-built-by-computers) about games that are not just for computers, but by computers: ‚??Angelina uses computational evolution techniques to search design spaces for playable games. Using a fairly simple design language, Cook specifies certain parameters such as layout constraints and rule-set variations ‚?? effectively defining a genre. Angelina iterates through a vast number of semi-random permutations of these, where each permutation is a potential new game. The evolutionary aspect of the process comes in when the system selects the better candidates of each iteration ‚?? or generation ‚?? and combines them to form the seeds of the next. But in Angelina‚??s case, there are two phases to the process. First, selecting the component game-parts ‚?? layout, mechanics ‚?? and secondly; picking a playable integration of these. Cook refers to this as ‚??cooperative co-evolution‚??.‚?? (more‚?¶) (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/02/26/the-sunday-papers-207/#more-96207)
