I really liked the atmosphere and character designs!

This is a cool simulation but I'll admit it was hard for me to understand fully. It was like watching a nature documentary with no commentator, fascinating and peaceful but the innerworkings were lost to me. Maybe being fascinating and peaceful was the point and I missed it. I think this simulation has a lot of potential if you wanted to make some challenges to "gameify" it. Things like start the player with some creatures that are blue and small and use the evolution to make them orange and big.

I LOVE this concept! Setting some parameters and seeing what happens. The little blobs are funny too haha. 

I'd love to see more variety with the blobs and them evolve in appearance and more types of interactions. I understand you had little time and probably had a lot you'd like to do, so I'd love to see you do more with this game.

Just a couple thoughts: a sidebar listing the controls might have been nice, and maybe by default being zoomed in closer (I found that was my favorite view and it took me a second to figure out that I could do that)

I really enjoyed the simulation. If I had one suggestion, I really wanted to get in and crank the values up to 11, get some silly stuff going or break something. Destruction and chaos are two of my favorite tools for creation and my favorite simulators are those that give you those tools with no oversight.

Really interesting ecosystem simulation.  Could definitely become an interesting game, though admittedly just not quite my cup of tea.  It was fun watching them run around, though from time to time one or two of them would break and just stand still lol.  

Interesting simulator.  Right on target with theme.  Music fits really well.  I had some creatures that kept getting stuck on each other around a rock.  The creatures are kinda cute also.  Great job!

Fun simulation game!  It's cool to see what happens with different gene combinations.

It looks like speed isn't as important as sense and reproduction for success of the species.  I added a species with low reproduction, max speed, and low sense and they move around like bees missing all of the carrots XD.  

This is a fun simulation and the music is really calming.  It creates a nice little atmosphere.  Nice job!

There is an update to the game with creatures eating other creatures now and they try to flee
