Well done. I didn't read the description beforehand so the entire story was a surprise to me. Was this based on personal experience?

In short, my graphics card was too old.
When I checked the Player.log file in .config/unity3d/Pixel\ Vision\ 8/Game\ Creator\ Pro/ it complained that the openGL version is out of date. It turns out the the graphics card is not compatable with OpenGL 3.2 -- which Unity games require to run.
Switched to a different computer -- no problems.
- Game won't start when booted from icon
- Execution permissions applied.

A window boots up for a fraction of a second and then closes.
- I am assuming this has something to do with the xrandr picking up 3 "screens". I am on a laptop with a single screen -- but there's a VIRTUAL1 screen and a VGA that I've assured are disabled by running xrandr.
- I think this may be an issue with my older hardware and unity. I'm going to run another unity game to check.
This is really cool -- is there any way to set your own starting conditions? Speed up the evolution time? Record population as a function of some variable over time?
That'd be really useful and really cool for people studying computational evolutionary biology. :-D
