I'm thinking about e.g. the growing, working and eventually dying workers in In the Shadow of the Emperor.

What has been done yet?

Village. But Village doesn't really give you the sense that your meeple is getting older or anything. I would like to see a game really explore that concept.

Primordial Soup: Your amoeba can starve and then decompose to nutrients for the others. May not be what you thought of, but definitely the circle of life.

Village: Your workers die and their descendants may remember them in the chronicles.

Symbioz

This is an abstract game of alien plants, herbivores, and carnivores.

The plants reproduce, the carnivores eat the herbivores, and the herbivores eat the plants. The player to max out their plants wins.

Good luck trying to find a copy, though.

Since the song's now in my head, there are a few games based on a certain Disney property including Disney's The Lion King Circle of Life Dominoes and Disney's The Lion King Circle Of Life Card Game.
