Forge company Digital Diatom has been accepted into the Ontario Centres of Excellence SmartStart funding program, receiving over $60,000 funds to help them reach their current beta release target for its flagship product Emergence. Emergence is a genetics-based sandbox that models the process of evolution using realistic genetic elements, accurately capturing how genes drive the diversity of life. With dozens of modes of interaction and an expansive world that is able to host up to hundreds of thousands of unique organisms, Emergence provides a platform for education, exploration and entertainment.
The funding will facilitate technological enhancements, such as coding, sounds and interface modifications to enhance usability and user experience, as well as allow for promotion and marketing of Emergence.
Congratulations to Digital Diatom!
