Aug 13, 2002 - Currently glAnts is an ant simulation.
A set of of about 100-500 ants try to survive in a simulated garden.
If Anything offsets the balance of the world, then the ants die over time.
Otherwise, the ants may produce a surplus of food which has never happened.
The goal is to use this simple Alife simulation to create a
game in the area of a first person shooter. Your goal would be
to disrupt the ants balance and thereby destroy the ant colony. There
goals is protect the nest.
