Zoo Base is a the spiritual sequel to Star Zoo(2002) which was developed with permission by Tarn Adams of Bay 12 Games. The game takes place years following the events that occur at the ending of Star Zoo. Dr. Kozmo is tasked with creating suitable habitats for displaced alien species. however, underfunded and overworked the frustrated doctor begins to question his morals and the viability of his research. This leads to conflict and an inevitable backlash both politically and locally.

The gameplay is built around an interactive-fiction game engine while also representing some elements of what a rogue-like is in essence. The premise is to unlock the secrets of 20 alien species. All the while maintaining Zoo Base's limited supplies and dwindling staff.

Current State

In February 2014 Zoo Base was cancelled.
