“Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.”
That’s the classic quote from Ian Malcolm, played by the inimitable Jeff Goldblum, in Jurassic Park. In that case, he was referring to the titular park and whether it was really in the best interests of the world to bring dinosaurs back to life. (Spoiler alert: it wasn’t.)
Dinosaur Island is the first DLC for Let’s Build a Zoo – the quirky indie zoo tycoon game not to be confused with the mawkish Matt Damon movie We Bought a Zoo – and, as you might expect, brings an island of dinosaurs to the game.
There are over 50 of the prehistoric critters, plus a bunch of scenery and props to really set off that scientific hubris look you’re going for. Even more fun, you can use Let’s Build a Zoo’s DNA splicing mechanic to genetically combine your dinosaurs with the game’s other animals. (Seriously, has nobody watched Jurassic Park? This cannot end well.)
Let’s Build a Zoo’s Dinosaur Island DLC launches on May 23, 2022.
We hate to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's difficult to make ends meet in online publishing at the moment, so if you'd like to help us continue our work, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
