Video Life is a rare video game for the Atari 2600.[1] It is a version of the zero-player cellular automaton known as Conway's Game of Life.[2] Video Life was only available through a special mail order offer to owners of Commavid's Magicard, which itself is considered to be one of the rarest Atari 2600 cartridges ever released. According to original CommaVid co-owner Irwin Gaines, only "20 cartridges or less" of Video Life were ever made.[citation needed]
