What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The structure of the Zooconomy fits the Early Access format very well, and the Early Access itself will allow us to complete the development of the game along with players. We not only want to tune the balance of the game, but also add content which players want. This primarily concerns animals and zoos themselves.

During Early Access, we will be adding new content, as well as making major updates with new mechanics. For example, in one of the first such updates we want to add Research mechanic - option to study regular and extinct animals.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We except it to be in Early Access around 6 months, but it will generally be depend on current development progress.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

In addition to new animals and zoos, story missions and new sandbox customization options will be added.

Mac OS
We would like to add support of Mac OS

New languages
We also want to add more languages so that as many players as possible can play in their native language.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Initially both game modes will be available:

At the moment, the game has 5 tutorial missions and 5 story missions. Tutorial missions will help player understand the game mechanics, which can then be tested in the story missions of the campaign.

It will also be possible to create a sandbox game and play with any available zoo. Initially, there will be a limited set of parameters that can be configured, but with future patches the number of parameters will be increased.

Animals and zoos
At the start, 110 animals and 80 zoos will be available

Right now game is available in English and Russian.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the base price will be probably increased.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan actively involve the community in the development, because this was one of the key factors in going into Early Access. The most important thing is player feedback, their wishes and ideas. We will try our best to take into account every message, but of course, we will not be able to fulfill absolutely all the wishes of the players.

Players will also be able to vote and suggest which animals and zoos to add to the game. We plan to collect all this in all possible types of communication: forum on Steam, Twitter, Discord and via emails.”

About This Game

Have you ever wondered how zoos get their animals? It's simple - via exchange. You need a Koala while the London Zoo needs a Brown Bear. What a coincidence you have a Brown Bear and the London Zoo has Koala. You shake hands and exchange animals. But what if you don't have a Brown Bear...

You're the zoo manager and head of the Zoo's exchange program. For various reasons you need animals and there are zoos which also want to exchange some of their animals. Find exchange chains, where you exchange with several other zoos only to exchange for animals you wanted in a first place. Animals are your currency. Build good relations with other zoos to exchange more animals or to exchange animals on your terms. Upgrade your zoo to increase capacity or to unlock new types of animals. Breed your unique animals to exchange them later and compete for the title of #1 zoo.

Play through historic campaigns based on real zoos and their stories. In each mission you will play as a specific zoo with a predetermined number of tasks. Learn history as you save animals in Berlin Zoo after World War II, take part in a breeding program to restore the Kiwi population in New Zealand, or lead an expedition to find the first giraffe in the wild and bring him to Schönbrunn Zoo.

Customize game rules, select the zoo you want and how you want to play. Collect all animals, fill the world with platypuses or become the number one zoo in the world. All tasks in this mode will be generated automatically, but you don't have to follow them.

Be prepared for random events: who knows what can happen with your one and only red panda. Maybe it will escape, maybe it will get ill. During the game you can encounter many random events:
  • Animal Escape
  • Epidemic
  • Poachers (Save animals)
  • Flooding
  • Forest fires
  • Fallen trees or other things which require repair

Travel to dense forests, deep waters, hot steppes and high mountains in search of the rarest animals. They are in danger of extinction, so breeding in captivity will preserve these species for future generations.
