Conway script Conway script

This is an alphabet inspired by Conway's Game of Life, a cellular automaton created by John H. Conway in 1970. The 'game' involves an orthogonal grid, with 'live' cells and 'dead' cells. The grid changes over time - live cells can die off (starvation or overpopulation), while dead cells can be born/reborn (reproduction). An example is shown, using a pixel form of the letter "G" and morphing it over 3 iterations. (Live cells are black, dead cells are white.)

An example of how the Conway script letters are formed

The alphabet was generated by morphing each English letter, plus 0-9, individually in Life (3 iterations each). The punctuation marks are based on common stable ('still life') cell groups.

"A 'live' cell dies if it has more than 3 live neighbors, or less than 2. A 'dead' cell is repopulated if it has exactly 3 live neighbors."
