The extremely specific genus of the zoo simulator occupies a particular niche in our hearts. In addition to allowing us to manage a park and make a fortune, the attractions are cuter than the others. Let’s Build a Zoo is the latest, and it arrives this summer on PC, with Switch, Xbox, and Playstation versions planned not far behind. But beware, the game hides a twist!
Currently in development at Springloaded Games, Let’s Build a Zoo offers at first glance the arsenal typical of an excellent old-fashioned management game: we prepare our animal enclosures (nearly 500 species available). We manage the staff and the economic details, and we reap the profits by regaling the public—all with a visual style with crazy charm.
In your hands: how you want to manage your park. Care for your employees, or on the contrary, make them crumble under the workload and make the most of them. The game includes a real morality system that will let you treat your staff and your pets as you see fit.
Let’s Build a Zoo doesn’t stop there since the game will allow you the opportunity to genetically manipulate your animals, making unlikely crosses to create new species. From kagougator to hippopovache, 300,000 possibilities are waiting for your imagination.
In addition to the trailer, a nine-minute gameplay video is available to give you an idea and make you wait a few more months until the summer. For the more impatient, a beta should be held right out in May.
