No More Robots Unveils Gene-Splicing Tycoon Game Let’s Build a Zoo

Let's Build a Zoo

Let’s Build a Zoo is set to combine zoo management and genetic meddling.

Have you ever wanted to build your own zoo and populate it with horrifying genetic abominations, nightmares that would put Alien: Resurrection to shame? Beasts so tormented that their existence is sheer agony and, as you walk past their cages, their eyes tell you they just want to be able to die?

No, us neither. So it’s a blessing that Let’s Build a Zoo is taking a cutesy approach to gene-splicing and zoo management. Published by No More Robots and developed by Springloaded Games, this zoo simulator not only lets you create and manage a zoo but you can also mash-up animals to create over 300,000 new beasts.

That should stop people complaining. Otters too boring, you say? Let’s see what you think of the BearShark! Oh, and look, someone just happens to have left the cage open. Don’t worry, the Giant SquidOwl will take care of it. We’re hoping that there will, indeed, be some Jurassic Park style consequences for breeding animals and failing to adequately safeguard your visitors.

Let’s Build a Zoo will be coming to Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC this Summer. There’ll be a closed PC beta very soon; you can wishlist it on Steam right now.
