If you're into awesome collaborations, try this on for size: Matt Rix, creator of Trainyard [$0.99] and Owen Goss, the dude behind LandFormer [Free] and Finger Tied [$2.99 (HD)] have teamed up with the Brothers Marsh from NimbleBit to release the upcoming title Disco Zoo. Here's the skinny on the game:

Through casual puzzle gameplay, rescue animals from around the world to live in your very special Disco Zoo. Earn coins from your exhibits and keep the party going for both visitors and animals with disco dancing!

Check out a brief trailer:

The game is said to have the same style of NimbleBit free to play with pixelated animals, and, apparently, loads of disco. It's coming soon, and seems to be worth being excited for as NimbleBit has been on fire with great game releases.

    Doesn't look great, but it's Nimblebit. 🙂

  • JCho133

    The pixel art isn't as appealing as the Tiny and Pocket games, but the disco animations more than make up for it

    • bigrand1

      I gotta agree with you on that!

  • runliketurtles

    Loved Trainyard, but Nimblebit games really arn't my thing. So a bit torn on this...

    • dancj

      My feelings exactly.

    • Jamal Johnson

      NimbleBit is only doing the publishing work from what I heard, so you shouldn't worry too much if you aren't a fan of them.

      • rewind

        Yup, just read that too and it seems as if this will be your typical management game, with the necessarily unnecessary disco.

        Also, Snow Siege is on hold while they put out this one.

      Plus one of the best things about Trainyard was no IAP. He even gave away a level editor when he easily could have kept it for himself and charged for new level updates.

      With Nimblebit involved, the game is guaranteed to be geared toward microtransactions.

    I'm still waiting on Snow Siege from Milkbag.

    I'm curious to see how this plays

  • rewind

    Well this looks interesting...

  • Churchill92

    This game looks horrible. Pixelated beyond useful recognition.

    Music was the only redeemimg part of the trailer.

    They really can do better.

  • Thawkk

    People really seem to be jumping the gun on judgements when we've barely seen anything yet. Jeez.

  • Xaintrix

    I like disco, and I like zoos, but HUH? Learned nothing from that.

  • Teremei

    I'm sure I will be addicted to this game. If it's a zoo management, build up your zoo type game I think it will be a lot of fun.

  • rewind

    How can you judge whether the game will be good or not? All we have is an odd, but very amusing trailer that basically tells us nothing. All we know is how the game will look, which isn't hard to predict with a NimbleBit game.

    I am extremely excited to find out more though. Since it's a combined effort, it seems like this is no gimmick. The trailer made me wonder who in the world would come up with that idea and what the hell is going on.

    That's great and all, but trainyard needs widescreen

    "NimbleBit has been on fire with great game releases."

    Just don't count Tiny Death Star, it's still a wreck, and there hasn't been an update for quite some time. It's just so slow and choppy...

    • rewind

      NimbleBit's trying to act as if they had nothing to do with the development and simply licensed the franchise to LucasArts. They didn't mention the release on their twitter, hardly spoke about the game, and it isn't even mentioned on their website.

      • the fish

        The AppStore even says "LucasArts" under the title.

      • mindjuice

        It's possible that it may be part of the development agreement to not talk about it.

  • xbtran

    I love animals but there aren't really any good zoo games so Im excited for this one.

  • rpgmind

    I'm in it strictly for the disco.

  • dixie

    I can't wait

  • JCho133

    If you guys had any doubts, don't worry. I like this better than Tiny Tower!

    • JCho133

      And the new pixel art style is growing on me. I love all the cool animals you can get, and the things the people in the zoo say in their little word bubbles are hilarious

    Eli streamed it today. It looks great!
