So, my apartment has recently become infested with ants. I find them quite distracting and distressing, especially when they’re crawling across my desk as I try to code. Perhaps as a coping mechanism, the puzzle game I was trying to make turned into an ant simulation instead. Turns out that for all their apparent creepy sophistication, they’re pretty much just dumb little twitchy Turing machines (or at least can be convincingly modeled as such).

I’m feeling a bit better, but this doesn’t even remotely resemble a game yet.
