Genre: Simulation - Pet

Group Description

Games that simulate interaction between the player and a virtual pet animal. These games usually involve taking care of the pet, attending to its needs and trying to keep it alive and healthy. Pets may be real (dogs, cats, etc.), fictional, and artificial (for instance: Tamagotchi). Pet simulations resemble biological simulations in that they simulate aspects of animal life, but differ from them because they focus exclusively on the human-pet relationship.
