I'm really curious about different kinds of challenges, runs, play styles, etc. I know about Wolfling Runs, Hera Runs, and the like, but what are some others? What do you like to do? I'm always looking for new things to try :)

Some smaller challenges would be that you could set out to try and breed a particular look for a creature. You could, say, take 3 breeds, decide "I want the head and tail of A, the torso of B, and the arms and legs of C" and see how many generations it takes you to get there.
You could perhaps even add more abstract traits into the mix, such as that creatures must inherit the amphibious trait from one breed on top of your desired look.

Another classic is to get a full population of color-mutated creatures, starting only with default-color base genomes.

Generally speaking, breeding for certain traits is a good fit for a game series like Creatures. Like I said, you can try to approach it like a speedrun, attempting to use the fewest generations or the lowest time possible, or you can take a calmer "the way is the goal" type of approach and try to get there in a relaxed fashion.
Just try to be aware of how achievable certain things actually are. You can, for example, make creatures gradually more sturdy against certain poisons, but it is unlikely that you will completely "flip" the immune system and turn them into homebrew Toxic Norns.

Thanks! Yeah, I enjoy breeding random creatures together to see what the different combinations can create. I had no idea they could be made sturdier against poisons, that's so cool!

I'm generally always looking for gameplay challenges a la wolfling runs, so if you hear of any good ones, please let me know :D
