Play OverviewPlay Overview

Petting Zoo (2013) is a narrative game where you interact with hand-drawn animals to get them to do amazing and amusing things. It's ideal for very young players, but doesn't pander to simplicity. Each scene stretches reality in imaginative ways as you poke and pull at each animal.

What would an elephant in your bathroom do? Can a dog breakdance? Could you play a tune on a crocodile's teeth? What if a giraffe sounded like a set of drums? Each of the 21 hand-animated animals is full of surprise and wit. And each is accompanied by different instruments.

It's an adventure where animals and everyday objects blend together for your entertainment, curiosity and musical delight.
