Be in charge of a single species and watch it grow and branch into various species as it evolves generation after generation. In Chrysalis-Dx you will control three important environmental variables. Available Food, Temperature and CO2 level. As you adjust these level during the course of the simulation, you will be controlling the path of evolution. It won’t be easy because as more species start sharing the same environment, competition for food becomes inevitable. Some species have special traits that helps their own but not the competition while others have traits the hurts the competition but offer no direct benefit on its own. At the end of the day however you decide which species you want to support by changing the environmental variables. You can’t save them all but then again that’s how real life works. Chrysalis-Dx is a causal paced simulation which can run in the background while you do real work. It can be the perfect distraction while you take those 5 min breaks.

Chrysalis-Dx Released

News

Reflective Layer is proud to announce the official release of Chrysalis-Dx . A demo with one evolutionary path is available for download.
Chrysalis-Dx is an evolution simulation game. You control the environment and let evolution do its thing. Chrysalis-Dx is not a fast paced game. It's a game you play in the background while you do other work. Check up on your experiment from time to time.
There's a feature which allows you to post your screenshots on your Facebook page directly from within the game.

Be honest here, who came here just because those floating things reminded you of Overlords from StarCraft. :P

Come to thing of it, it does look like an Overlord.
Actually it's modeled after an Amphipoda. A shrimp like creature.

Not really. In Chrysalis-D, you only have control of the environment. Not the species themselves. Also there is no real goal in the game. It just plays out based on the environment conditions. The main idea is to ontrol the population of one species over the the other.

If you read the description you will see that it is actually nothing like spore.

Nice. What are the system requirements? Is there a tutorial in game?

For Windows XP and up:
As low as a Pentium 4 1.90Ghz with 512MB Ram 64MB graphics
Not sure for the Mac but should be pretty low as long as it's an Intel based Mac.

Since this game is meant to be played in the background it's not resource intensive.

The temperature is the only variable that controls evolution, so a tutorial should not be needed. However I'm working on a "cheat sheet" that will list all the key species along with their requirements and traits.
