    Simple? o.O
    There is a great book on worms.

     It’s not an earthworm, its Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans). A nematode. They only have around 900 cells and the “brain” (actually, it’s a ganglion ring) is completely mapped. It’s a model organism and they have been trying to make artificial versions of this thing for a while

    The Worms games are the only earthworm simulator I’ll ever need. I’m not going to let some stuffy scientists tell me that earthworms can’t use ropes to swing on or use bunker busters to take out their enemies.

      This could be the start of an all-worm version of Dorf Fortress. Worms with lava traps, perpetual motion engines and wardogs; what’s not to like?
