Let’s Build A Zoo! No, not actually. That would take a lot of money and time and also animals, none of which we have. But in the game Let’s Build A Zoo, you can build a zoo, and fill it with rare creatures, visitors, and staff to keep everything running smoothly.
But wait, there’s more! There’s also a DIY DNA option, where you can splice together your favourite critters to create new ones, like a PandOwl or a Giraffephant, with over 500,000 possibilities to find. Who said playing god was bad?
Let’s Build A Zoo will be coming to consoles in September 2023, alongside a physical copy available through Merge Games — which will include the Dinosaur Island DLC (which is not included with the digital version). There’s no news on what the cost will be, but on Steam — where it’s been out since November 2021 — it costs $19.99 / £15.49.
