Been working on this for the past couple of days. It's a remake of one of my old prototypes that I have posted a video about before. It uses Cellular Automata, more specifically Conway's "Game Of Life" to create an evolving platform level.
There are two versions shown in the video: The first is simple platform blocks to create the look of the level and the second uses "Bitwise" numbers to automatically tile the level as it is evolving. This version starts at around the 3m50s mark if you'd like to skip forwards to it :).
The last part of the video is a "Gosper Gun" which I am currently designing a game mode the revolves around this Game Of Life pattern.
There is more info in the Annotations and also there is this post at my Blog if you are interested - http://minor78.wordpress.com/2010/09/12/cellular-automata-platform-level/
Thanks for watching :)
