AnimalAlbum Kickstarter Campaign Underway

A Pokemon game with real animals but without the fighting
Sjors Jansen has launched a Kickstarter campaign for AnimalAlbum, a semi co-op role playing adventure game about animals. There is no epic quest to save the world - as the main character you'll play a robot with the task to go out and observe wildlife, catalog and analyze.
AnimalAlbum looks and feels like a role playing game in general, that means walking around the world seen from a top down perspective, exploring areas, looking for animals and running into people. But it's less focused on battles, level grinding and random encounters. AnimalAlbum is more laid back and takes a page from traditional adventure games like Monkey Island or King's Quest which means talking, prodding and actively thinking about connections between characters.
