The origin and evolution of language is an intriguing scientific problem that attracts much attention of researchers of multiple disciplines. Recently, the idea that language might have spontaneously emerged in a population of communicating individuals draws a considerable attention and motivates various computational modeling studies. One can mimic these communication processes using certain language games and examine whether such a language will be commonly understood, what structure it has and how it will subsequently evolve. We give a brief introduction to this research field biased by our own experience.
