DryLife is a Life-like cellular automaton in which cells survive from one generation to the next if they have 2 or 3 neighbours, and are born if they have 3 or 7 neighbours.

The "flower garden".

DryLife is so named because the standard spaceships from normal life; lightweight spaceship, middleweight spaceship, and heavyweight spaceship do not work, though the glider does. Some other spaceships, such as the weekender and loafer, work in this rule. The copperhead evolves into the closely related c/10 goldenhead, differing from copperhead by two cells in one phase.

Two correctly spaced B-heptominoes (as in the twin bees shuttle) act as a c/2 orthogonal puffer.

A new speed allowed by DryLife is 9c/28 orthogonal. Technology travelling at this speed relies on the R-pentomino. There is a small 9c/28 orthogonal pond puffer, and a 9c/28 spaceship. Guns and breeders have been constructed that fire spaceships and rakes of this speed respectively.

The "flower garden", a common constellation which evolves from honey farm predecessors, composed of four boats and two cis-mirrored R-bees, is shown to the right.
