Zoo Tycoon-inspired title canned.
The guys over at AGB have uncovered information regarding a title that was in development for the Xbox 360 by Kinectimals developer Frontier Developments.
Based on the PC smash-hit Zoo Tycoon, Microsoft Zoo was set to be a 3rd-person adventure that enabled players to build their own zoo from scratch, fill it with animals, and then take care of them and try to make their constructed facility prosper.
It seems that a lot of the groundwork that was put in didn't get wasted when the game was canned a couple of years ago though, as a lot of it made its way into the final Kinectimals product, which was something of a critical success, if not a financial one. We thought you'd get a kick out of seeing what could have been, so here the work-in-progress shots are below.
