Let's generate GIF animation with worldsize=60x60 generation=500.
$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i life=s=60x60 -vframes 500 lifegame.gif
OK, here is decorated version:
$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i life=s=60x60:life_color=00ff00:ratio=.5 \ -sws_flags neighbor -vf scale=360:360,drawgrid=w=6:h=6 \ -vframes 500 lifegame.gif
