How do organisms maximize their survival? What if you’re a tasty morsel and can’t avoid detection from predators? Perhaps a solution is to look like something that predators don’t like to eat!
In Gerard Layzard, players take on the role of Gerard, a cyborg lizard (or Layzard) for hire. They must try and save the Ant Queen’s colony from invading bugs. As they play, and learn about the benefits of mimicry, they’ll be providing scientists with data to better understand which traits make a better mimic.
