Grow and manage a zoo full of extinct animals. Prehistoric Kingdom sounds like a fusion of Zoo Tycoon and Jurassic World Evolution. The indie simulation game is expected to be released in April 2022.

As with any management simulation game you will be expected to build, manage, and grow your zoo.

Build

The tools provided in the game will allow you to design and decorate the ultimate terrain that your prehistoric animals require. From jungle terrains to carving out mountains and rivers.

Manage

Take care of your animals as well as the people in your zoo. You'll have to balance resources to ensure you please all the guests, labourers, and animals in your zoo.

Grow

You'll be able to breed a unique and diverse selection of extinct wildlife by undoing the rules of extinction. There could also be research elements in the game that allow you to discover genetic material around the world.

Pre-orders are currently closed but Early Access should open up soon. You can still Wishlist the game on Steam if it strikes your fancy. Time will tell if the game will give Jurassic World Evolution 2 a run for its money.

There is a development diary included on the Steam page that details the additions to the game as development progresses. So far various buildings, scenery, foliage, and biomes have been introduced. Currently animal welfare is planned to be introduced in the next update in preparation for an Early Access release.

There are two trailers for the game so far: the Early Access Announcement Trailer and the Closed Beta Announcement Trailer.
