Ardarium is a 2D simulation that automatically generates a random map and populates it with people who then attempt to survive and build nations. The point is to be something pretty and colorful that you can watch like a screensaver or play like a simple sandbox game.
People gather food, avoid danger, build settlements, and have kids. A settlement might thrive due to an abundance of food and then decline because of disease.
The world constantly changes. Land deforms because of erosion, tectonic uplift, volcanos and meteors. Elevation changes cause coastlines to shift and alter weather patterns. A forest might turn into a desert because it no longer gets rain. A submerged hill can become an island if the land rises above the water.
Anything the player can do, like placing new people or starting meteor showers, is something the simulation also does automatically. You can leave it running as long as you want and the world will continue as normal.
