This is a little toy. A Valentine's Day screensaver. It is written in processing from http://processing.org/ and uses Boid flocking.

If you are alone you won't have any 'problems' but without 'problems' there is no point to life.

1. problems are like birds that flock together (in 3D!)
2. they take on a colour sampled from a picture called crazy_in_love
3. when we are together more are born and fly with the flock
4. when we are apart some are killed

To be perfectly honest, my first thought to this game was WTF!?

After a few seconds, though, I was truly captivated. This is by far the best adaptation of the theme I've seen! It works very well (although after awhile lag becomes a real issue), and it is, as far as I'm concerned, a work of pure ingenuity! Thanks for sharing! 5/5!

P.S. - Not many people get this game at first, and after they start they aren't really willing to give it a chance. Just wait, your rating will go up :)
