MANCHESTER, MAY 5 2022

Publishing label No More Robots and development team Springloaded Games are hugely excited to announce Dinosaur Island, the first major downloadable content for their popular zoo management sim Let's Build a Zoo, is coming to Steam and the Epic Store on May 23rd for $9.99 / £7.19 / 8,19€.

Let's Build a Zoo was released in November last year, and quickly stormed its way to a mammoth 100,000 sales. Now Dinosaur Island brings an evolved, new way to play that's a little bit rawrsome.

Your team has developed technology for cloning dinosaurs from fossils, and has built a special park on a remote island for housing your creations... and charging the public to come and check them out.

With over 50 new creatures to resurrect, display and look after, they'll each make your heart saur with how cute yet terrifying they can be. And the content gets even meteor from there, with a whole new campaign to play through, new enclosure types, a new research tree to unlock, and tons of new shops and decorations.

>From rocky paths and active volcanos, to giant trees and dino-egg food shops, there are plenty of ways to make your dinosaur kingdom look absolutely dino-mite... or you can simply focus on churning through your customers, and leaving the park looking a bit of an eye-saur.

In Let's Build a Zoo, you could splice any two animals together to create over 300,000 new crazy creatures. With this injection of dinosaurs, players will now be able to visit Sandbox Mode and merge the original critters with their jurassic buddies, leading to over 10 million different animal variants. The world's first capysaurus or donkey-ceratops, anyone?

So don't be a lazy bones, and make sure you find a way to your online dino-store of choice to check out all the details on Dinosaur Island. The press kit can be found here.

Now I need to head off -- all of these puns have left me feeling a bit of a nervous rex.
