I have tried and failed to play Vilmonic. It's an artificial life sim where you're in charge of your own organisms, cultivating the ideal conditions for them to prosper and grow. Think Creatures, but with optional genome editing. It's too much for me, but it is fascinating.

"I've discovered that sexual reproduction in Vilmonic is extremely difficult."Victoria wasn't happy with her fungaloids. She'd combined the genes from two mushrooms, but the results were disappointing: no matter what she tried, the results were mostly "non-viable life forms." Little did Victoria know that the next day, not only would those fungi be flourishing - she'd have written her name in their D.N.A.
Life! Don't talk to me about life. Unless you're talking about breeding artificial lifeforms in something like Vilmonic, where you guide evolution to help increasingly sophisticated beasties flourish. Or just whack 'em next to some predatory zombitons and see what happens.
