It's time to build a zoo! Let out your wild side, and create your own animal empire with this cute, expansive management sim. Import and breed rare creatures, hire the right staff, keep your visitors happy, and deal with plenty of weird and wonderful events. Then try your hand at DNA Splicing, and stitch together over 300,000 different types of animal, ranging from the majestic Giraffephant to the peaceful PandOwl! Let's Build a Zoo lets you import a variety of animals from other Zoos around the world! Breed your animals and start families to expand your wildlife and fill your enclosures. But if that doesn't suit you... you could just create animals instead! With DNA splicing at your fingertips, you have the power to bind together over 300,000 different types of animal, creating monstrosities and oddities as you go! Ever wondered what a ChicKaka would look like? Now you can find out! Throughout Let's Build a Zoo, players are encouraged to play with morality based quests in order to interact with real-world issues - illegal trading, ex-situ breeding programs, overcoming wild extinction (with in-game figures drawn from the IUCN red list) and carbon emissions to name but a few. Let's Build a Zoo allows for exploration through what-if scenarios, all while maintaining its charm and grace as a simulation game with real depth.
