What is Arcade Life?

Inspired by Conway's Game of Life, Arcade Life leverages similar game mechanics, but with a number of retro twists, to create unique 1 of 1 pixel art played to you in the form of a video.

There are 4200 unique Arcade Life NFTs, each is algorithmically generated.

The game (NFT) played shows thousands of cells coming to life and dying over generations. This is truly one of a kind pixel art.

Introducing PowerUps

As well as the stats shown in the game, Arcade Life introduces PowerUps. A game mechanic that causes the direction of cells to take unique paths across the canvas, creating stunning patterns and behaviour.

PowerUps aren't always guaranteed as with real life there's probability of occurrences causing rarities to form. Take a look at the available game PowerUps below:

What you get

All minted Arcade Life NFTs will be displayed as videos on the secondary market. Owners will also be able to download a snapshot image of the game at the last frame containing all the stats totalled up and displayed at the bottom of the image.

All rarities and stats for your NFT are stored and displayed on the market place giving those that like to explore more the chance to do so.

Rewarding Our Collectors

Collectors of Arcade Life will be rewarded for holding on to at least 1 of their NFTs, we're already working on Project #02 due for release Q1 2022 with other collections to follow. Make sure you don't miss out on this extraordinary collection!

We'd like you to be a part of our journey in this space. Join us from the very start with Arcade Life.

Game Breakdown

Here's an overview of the key game components that form an Arcade Life NFT. All the game components, properties and stats listed below will also be available to view on OpenSea etc.


These rules are executed on every generation throughout a game.

* Any live cell with fewer than two live neighbours dies, as if by underpopulation.

* Any live cell with two or three live neighbours continues to live on to the next generation.

* Any live cell with more than three live neighbours dies, as if by overpopulation.

* Any dead cell with exactly three live neighbours becomes a live cell, as if by reproduction.

As inevitable with generations, society can cause changes along the way, in those less frequent parallel universes, expect to be surprised.


There are numerous PowerUps available for each game. Every powerup has a random likelihood of occuring. Some PowerUps are more rare in occurence than others. A game can have multiple PowerUps. More PowerUps = more chaos.

Check out the list of PowerUps below:

Cannon Lasers


Lasers projecting life.



New life appears, origins unknown...

Very Rare

Civilisation grows exponentially.



Nuclear strike, killing surrounding life.

Epoch Virus

Player Name

Each Arcade Life NFT is assigned a randomly generated player name. Who will be playing your game?

Player name


Each game is randomly assigned a colour palette. This colour palette will be applied to various components of your game e.g. each generation of cells, frame/border, stats, text etc.


Every game has a maximum number of generations. Once the maximum generation count has been reached, it's game over!

Mode A = Short length game with a total of 60 generations

Mode B = Standard length game with a total of 120 generations

Mode C = Feature length game with a total of 180 generations


Mode 1 = 150ms per generation

Mode 2 = 100ms per generation

Mode 3 = 50ms per generation

Game Over / Scoring

As soon as a game ends, all cells that survived are tallied up, categorized by how many generations they survived, and your final scores are displayed in your NFT.

Dead Cells

Any black cells within a game represent dead cells. When it comes to scoring, these cells have 0 value.

Surviving Cells

There are 5 categories for surviving cells: Gen 1, Gen 2, Gen 3, Gen 4 and Gen 5+.

Minting Process

We have taken extra steps to ensure a fair minting process. We have made sure none of the unique attributes and rarities belonging to Arcade Life NFTs are available pre-mint to avoid bad actors attempting to sway the minting process in their favour.

We decided to keep our mint price low as we'd like you to join us on our journey in this space. Once minted your Arcade Life NFT will be revealed within 72 hours.
