Can you climb your way out of the ooze onto the land, into civilization, and up to the stars? And by the time you reach space, will you be wearing the fanciest of all fancy hats?

The Breakfast Review
The text bits are all very short and perky. I liked the affectionate humour. This is clearly meant to be a lighthearted romp, and I'm not sure if there is a way to "lose".

Epitaph, although that approaches the evolution of civilisations from an outsider's perspective, while this is very much an insider's view.
Systems-wise, it might be the most similar to Evolve; both use quality-gated choices. It's a good fit for the platform. While Evolve aims to be educational and brings the reader through the actual nuts and bolts of evolution and other concepts, The Little Lifeform takes a much looser view of the science, with a whimsical touch. Hats feature greatly.
A polished, simple game - could make a longish lunch break game.
