Introducing the HypnoLlama! (And the HypnoLlama Queen!)



The Eldritch Zookeeper has a new trailer! To announce not one, but two new monsters to begrudgingly welcome to the monster zoo.



The HypnoLlama is a friendly-looking thing, indeed of all the monsters it appears, on first glance, to be almost normal. But looks can be deceiving, and that is why I never open my eyes, not ever. Because when the HypnoLlama gets agitated, maybe you've let it go hungry, or you've let it get too close to humans, or another monster is biting it - it has the tendency to grow angry and take over lesser minds. 'Lesser minds', in this case, are your zoo visitors. Hypnotised guests are filled with a thirst for destruction and, left unchecked, can quickly turn a nicely ordered zoo into a chaotic mess.

The HypnoLlama Queen, if you can imagine, is even worse. It... sort of looks like a bunch of HypnoLlama's have melted into each other? Perhaps that's exactly what has happened? On one hand, sure, it doesn't take up much space, and doesn't move around very much. But when angry it is an order of magnitude more dangerous than your everyday, run-of-the-mill HypnoLlama.

You'll also notice from the trailer a new voice! The definitely-evil skeleton who seems quite responsible for the zookeeper's cursed situation is played by actor Scott Gilmour. Some voice acting is a great new addition that I'm really excited about.

Oh! Also! We now have a Discord Server! We're a pleasant, chill group, so if that sounds like where you want to be, and to hear about the game as development continues, you can join us here: https://discord.gg/C6TdkaP

Spring-y Fog! Levitating Visitors! Brand New Inventory!



Oh look, it's another development update! Have a watch of the video below and see all the new, exciting developments as the game keeps growing:



In short:
  • Fog is better than it used to be. Invisible springs are the secret sauce.
  • Levitating zoo visitors! This is an exansion on the magic hands ability that lets the zookeeper lift heavy boxes and throw them around - one of the few upsides of being cursed!
  • This led to a rework of the inventory system, including the new blueprint item for designing and building the zoo.
  • Game settings! Not very exciting, but every game needs them.

About This Game


In The Eldritch Zookeeper you run a zoo packed with unsettling, otherworldly monsters.

Deceived by a particularly well-dressed skeleton, a cursed zookeeper is forced to manage a zoo full of eldritch abominations, ideally with as little bloodshed as possible. Can our unfortunate zookeeper break his curse? Running a zoo filled with terrifying creatures that must be cared for isn't easy - construct enclosures and keep the monsters fed and reasonably content, and build amenities for the zoo visitors! A Happy Monster Zoo™ is when a creature's teeth/claws/exploding-tendencies are far, far away from the guest's vital organs. They need those! Monster rampages are discouraged.

Taking a mixture of inspiration from classic Bullfrog games (Theme Park World, Dungeon Keeper) and modern survival games, The Eldritch Zookeeper is coming to a variety of platforms very soon!


  • A variety of bloodthirsty monsters to contain, feed and keep reasonably happy. Or else!
  • Build ice-cream stands, smoothie shops, bathrooms and other amenities to distract zoo visitors from the yawning void!
  • Grow your zoo into a thriving must-see, cannot-unsee attraction for all the family!
