Intelligent Design: An Evolutionary Sandbox
A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
In a universe driven by targets, a faceless corporation employs you to create an evolving ecosystem you can never hope to control...
Intelligent Design is a sandbox god game with fully simulated genetics and evolution. You create species of plants, herbivores and carnivores, but once created you can only sit back and watch evolution happen. As your ecosystem develops you will build research stations to study your creatures. Research allows you to unlock genetic engineering abilities, which can lead to some really weird and unexpected consequences. Great power comes with great responsibility however, since when you start tampering with genetics it is hard to undo your mistakes...
