Multi-platform social RPG creator Pangalore today revealed it is developing ZooVale, a brand new social RPG in which a kingdom of talking animals is under threat by an evil witch. The new cross-platform HTML5 game features colorful, cartoon-style 2D graphics and compelling animal characters. ZooVale, which can be seen today in a freshly revealed trailer, is scheduled to be available this spring for multiple devices including iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch as well as PC/Mac over Facebook. ZooVale is free-to-play to allow players of all ages to engage however they’d like.
In ZooVale, players will meet a dynamic cast of expressive animal friends. With the help of their animal allies, players will build a village, breed a menagerie, and battle against the evil witch and her minions who are kidnapping innocent animals. Every creature must band together to rescue lost animals, defeat the witch, and restore the kingdom to its former glory.
ZooVale’s hybrid social RPG model includes three main forms of play. Players start by building their zoo village. They can build and upgrade buildings and farms while decorating their town to gain maximum Fame points. To populate their village, players can rescue animals from the witch as well as breed a menagerie by pairing up animal mates. The resulting little babies are then nurtured into adulthood to become valuable helpers and fighters. Training up their main lion character and their other animal allies, players also undertake missions to rescue kidnapped animals from the witch and her evil creatures. All battles are turn-based affairs with three options per round in a “rock, paper, scissors” style of strategy, and players can strategically choose up to three animals to send into each fight.
As with Pangalore’s social RPG hit, Knightly Adventure, players in ZooVale never need to wait for builds to finish as they can undertake animal rescue quests at any time to gain rewards while leveling up their characters. Speaking of Knightly Adventure, Pangalore also confirmed it has updated its multi-platform 3D fantasy title to version 2.4. Changes available in the 2.4 update for Knightly Adventure include significant performance enhancements, graphical improvements, the addition of Trophies, new social hooks including Game Center support, faster loading, and the phasing out of holiday-themed items.
