Genre: Simulation - Animal life / Biological

Group Description

Unlike human life simulations, biological simulations simulate animal life in general, life of specific kinds of animals/creatures, their evolution, etc. The creature in question can also be fictional (e.g. in Creatures series).

Limitations:
  • There are many games in which the player character is an animal, antropomorphic or not. However, this group only includes simulation games. The difference is clear if you compare Lion to Lion King.
  • Games in which only human life is simulated should not be included in this group.
  • Games that specifically simulate human interactions with a pet should not be included in this group.
  • Zoo / wildlife park managerial simulations have their own group, and shouldn't be listed unless they also focus on ecological and biological aspects (e.g. SimPark).
