Release: PSVita Game of life by domis4
Developer domis4 released a Lua port of Conway’s Game of Life for the PS Vita. This homebrew runs through Rinnegatamante’s lua player plus for PS Vita. In the author’s words:
What is PSVITA Game of Life?
PSVITA Game of Life is an simple implementation of Conway’s Game of Life for the PS Vita written in Lua. Thanks to Rinnegatamante’s lpp-vita Lua interpreter it was fairly easy to implement. Back in the day i installed my first PSP CFW (as a child), PSPLife was one of the first Homebrews i installed and i had some fun times playing around. Now i want to add my first contribution to the PS Vita Homebrew Scene. The Homebrew is my first Lua application and my first PS Vita application.

Is it Open Source?
Yes, in terms of the MIT License. It basically says that you can do whatever you want, and all you have to do is to add a copy of the license to the software.
Note: lpp-vita is distributed via GPL-3.0.
