Was going to say Zoo Tycoon, but that is unfortunately not on Steam. Yeah, it's actually crazy hard to get Zoo Tycoon 2 with all of its expansions anywhere.
Yeah, it's actually crazy hard to get Zoo Tycoon 2 with all of its expansions anywhere. Refer to my edit of my previous post but there is World of Zoo.
Yeah, it's actually crazy hard to get Zoo Tycoon 2 with all of its expansions anywhere. Let me expand the discussion in to business management games generally.
There is Prison Architect, which may be something you could look at, but it's still early access on Steam. You can find an external DVD drive on Amazon for like $15 if you're willing to spend that.
Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 has a zoo expansion included with it and that's on Steam. Of course, it's also on GOG which is the common sense choice to avoid all the Jacky Steam DRM.
RollerCoaster Tycoon and/or Theme Park Theme Hospital Airline Tycoon Beach Life Gangsters Pizza Connection 2 Cities in Motion Sid Meier's Railroads and/or Railroad Tycoon Oh, man, Beach Life, I forgot bout it, it was awesome.
Wild Animals Zoo Simulator is an awesome destruction game for you to enjoy online and for free on Silvergames.com. Bring chaos to the city controlling the most dangerous wild animals to earn lots of points.
Attack people walking around, destroy buildings, cars, walls and everything you can. Once you have earned enough points you will be able to control new animals, such as a hippo, a lion, a huge rhino and many more.
Every ounce of hype and hope I have for Planet Zoo comes down to developer Frontier, a company who seem to have gotten creating management sims down to a particularly fine art. The end result was a gloriously addictive theme park management sim that took everything that worked from the classic games we remember so fondly, while sprinkling in a few smart modern touches and unexpected surprises.
Evolution was, much like Planet Coaster, a tremendous effort that played to all the strengths of the title that preceded it, while introducing a slew of really cool new concepts. I especially dug being able to ride around in a Jeep to explore my park, and obviously letting your newly created Dino loose to wreak havoc on unsuspecting guests is always a blast.
If Planet Zoo can do the same thing, and give us a robust management sim that doesn’t treat the animals as an afterthought, but as living, breathing attractions that need to be taken care of While you will still need to keep the cash coming in and make sure customers have somewhere to wee and all that stuff, you’ll also need to take care of the complex environmental and social needs of your animal friends.
We don’t know much more about Planet Zoo beyond that, but I do know that any video game that wants to me to look after lions and tigers and bears (oh my) is a day one buy in my book.
