Laughing Jackal’s guide to caring for your giraffe


BRAINTREE, UK – 1 st December 2011

As part of a series of blogposts about their upcoming PlayStation Mini, Hungry Giraffe, Laughing Jackal have released their guide to caring for giraffes. 

Contradicting evidence from nature documentaries and zoos, Laughing Jackal found that giraffes prefer to eat tacos and burgers, rather than acacia foliage.

Laughing Jackal also offered the following sage advice on what not to feed your giraffe: “The average giraffe weighs 1200kg and so, as you can imagine, they can produce a lot of vomit.*  That is why you should avoid feeding your giraffe poison.  Unless, of course, you enjoy cleaning up small lakes of multicoloured giraffe spew, in which case knock yourself out.”

More information on Laughing Jackal’s research into giraffe care and how it has aided the development of Hungry Giraffe can be found at

*No giraffes were harmed during the making of this press release.

Established in 2005, Laughing Jackal are the developer of PlayStation minis such as Du æl Invaders, Vibes, Ace Armstrong vs. the Alien Scumbags, Stellar Attack , Cubixx, Orbit, the Fighting Fantasy series of gamebooks and the zombie chain reaction puzzler OMG-Z.
