Steam Launch set for April 14th!
  • Completely re-mastered camera controller for keyboard and mouse interactions.
  • Upgraded the Strategic View so that you can move the camera from above (frequently requested feature)!
  • Upgraded many plant models to take advantage of PC processing power and make the game look better on a larger screen.
  • You can now have up to 12 users saved on one computer. This was so that multiple people can share a computer without using each other’s coins or earning achievements for each other!
  • We’ve added convenient key bindings so you can interact even faster now.


Species Update!
Desert Species



Grassland Species



Rainforest Species




Enjoy this preview! We're looking forward to adding more as we grow. :)

Description
Release date: Early 2016
In Tyto Ecology, you have the power to create your own biodome and fill it with life!

Start with an empty biodome as your canvas, then create a rich, diverse ecosystem by balancing producers, consumers, and decomposers. You’re in control.

Become a master of the environment as you work to create a functioning ecosystem from the ground up, problem solving to learn life science principles. Tyto Ecology, an ecology simulation game, teaches Next Generation Science Standards to learners in a fun and innovative way!

Features:
  • Build and create your own self-sustaining ecosystem
  • 70+ species across currently 3 biomes (desert, grassland, rainforest)
  • Use the data tools to monitor your ecosystem’s ability to thrive
  • Earn achievements by completing ecological challenges
  • Sandbox game with hours of replayability
  • Use Photo Mode to capture the perfect moment
  • Educational gameplay that fits with Middle and High School Next Generation Science Standards


We're preparing to release Tyto Ecology on iPad, but also considering doing the work to port it over to PC/Mac. We can add some better graphics, design tweaks to work better for longer PC play, a scalable UI, and possibly more, depending on what the community on Steam is looking for!
