Chrysalis-Dx: Play God In Your Spare Time
Amateur mad scientists and aspiring sky gods: have you been looking for something that combines your need to do something other than work with the sweet thrill of
indulging capricious egomania playing God? If so, your search is over. Get a load of Chrysalis-Dx: The Soup Of Life.
In this inventively malicious life simulator, you’ll watch as one or more species that have been placed into observation tanks evolve from cellular organisms into complex animal life. Better still, you’ll get to f*** with them, and a lot too, changing environmental conditions, putting the creatures into each other’s tanks, forcing them to compete. You can also take an active role, or simply sit back and callously watch as your simulated Mother Nature’s capriciousness takes it toll. Think Seaman meets Civilization meets High School.
Speaking of high school, the official site suggests it will be helpful as an educational aide, and it probably will! But let’s be honest: we’re just going to watch mutant lifeforms battle to the death. Chrysalis-Dx will be available on August 9th. No word on how much it’s going to cost, but dev Reflective Layer’s other games price in the neighborhood of 7 bucks, so if it costs you anything at all, at least it’ll be cheap. Meanwhile, here’s a video to tide you over.
