Create your own ecosystem

The player creates an ecosystem in a virtual world and alters the genetics of the fauna and flora inhabiting the world. The player gets a chance to experiment with life-forms and genetics and create an ecosystem of his own which is self-sustainable.
The game lets the player change or modifies the genetics of the living organisms of the virtual world and find whether the new species can survive in the different environmental conditions or not. Along with this, the player can make new worlds with different environments and see the response of different species in different environmental conditions.
