Ships Ahoy - World of Zoo

THQ announces the release of World of Zoo, a zoology game not to be confused with World of Goo:

AGOURA HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--THQ Inc. (NASDAQ:THQI) today announced its new, original intellectual property, World of Zoo™ has shipped to all major retailers nationwide for Wii™, Nintendo DS™ and Windows PC. World of Zoo opens the creativity gates for kids and animal lovers of all ages and encourages them to explore the zoo in ways they have only imagined, from caring for their favorite wild animals, to creating their very own exhibits and learning about each animal through educational fun facts provided by National Geographic. World of Zoo is rated E for everyone and is available at the suggested retail prices of $39.99 (Wii), $29.99 (DS) and $19.99 (Windows PC).

“What truly sets World of Zoo apart is the incredible hands-on interactions you have with the world’s most amazing animals, combined with a variety of tools that lets players create and customize their own unique animals and zoo environments,” said Randy Shoemaker, vice president, global brand management at THQ. “Players will discover their animal’s favorite foods, activities and behaviors, all the while learning interesting information about each one. The National Geographic fun facts are something that animal lovers of all ages will enjoy and parents will appreciate.”

Movie-to-game adaptations aren't exactly rare, but I must admit I never expected Zoo (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0874423/) be be made into a game...

I think I'll skip this one.

You mean the Winnie the Pooh simulator, World of Pooh, followed up with World of Roo.

This opens up the gates for animal lovers does it? Taking that which was otherwise free and enslaving it for profit?

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.

Next up, the dairy farm simulator: World of Moo

And the add-on, World of Poo. You know, for realism.
