Brief Play Description: 

Equilibrium is a game inspired by Conway's Game of Life. Three species are living in a single world, competing each other. The goal of game is prevent an extinction of any species as long as possible.
Followings are a detailed game rule:
* All single species acts like Conway's Game of Life.
* They infect each other. If one colony of species is infected, it will change it's color. For example, if red one touch green one, green one's color will changes into red.
* Red infect green, green infest blue, blue infest red (R>G>B>R)
* White kills every neighbor cells (W > R,G,B)
* We can *nurture* any single species. Nurtured species will grow even faster than others. You can control an equilibrium of system by it.
* To get a high score, you should secure a diversity of species. The game will be over when any single species is extincted.
