• Hold left mouse button - Paint with current brush
  • Press right mouse button - Change current brush (creep > fire > wall)

The first Epitacle prototype was made by bodro and qw3rtyuu in more or less 12 hours as an experiment with cellular automata. Its organic and hypnotic patterns obey deterministic rules. Player inputs and a little randomness are used to keep things interesting.

The newer version uses shaders to optimize cell computation. As a result, the grid now contains sixteen times more cells and still achieves to be updated faster.

Legacy Version Controls

  • Left mouse click - Build wall
  • Right mouse click - Set fire
  • WASD - Move player One
  • IJKL - Move player Two

very satisfying! The walls are a bit confusing or glitchy though

You are right, the rules for walls is not really intuitive. What do you suggest? We wanted to have walls destructible a little

I’m sorry but I can’t help you with that. I’m not very experienced with programming
