After many long nights of deliberation and trawling through all of the suggestions you sent in for our new social game, the FluffyLogic team have decided to go with the original name UrZoo – mainly because you all seemed to really like it …go Seb! . We have, however, added a little surprise that will literally make the new game your Zoo; on loading UrZoo for the first time, you will be asked to enter a name of your choosing. The given name will then appear every time you play UrZoo!
We would like to thank all of you who sent in suggestions for our new game! Head over to our Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/UrZoo were we will post updates, wallpaper, competitions and more!
We are all very excited about our new game UrZoo here at the at the Fluffy ranch, however, we don’t think the name is quite right. After the massive success of the Eat Them competition (winners to be announced imminently!) we thought we would ask our Fluffy Fans to come up with the name.
The game will involve growing, feeding and breeding your very own animals in your very own zoo. Players will be able to create some of the most unbelievable species so far undiscovered by mankind!
Send your suggestions via our Contact page by the 3rd May 2011 and we will announce the winner shortly afterwards. The winner will have the satisfaction of knowing that their name will be immortalised as well as having their name in the credits of the game as the Namer! We look forward to your entries.

The University of Abertay has announced it will offer grants to six UK independent studios, as part of a wider initiative to help the UK industry. The university is paying out £150,000, giving £25,000 to each selected UK studio.
According to culture minister Ed Vaizey, the university had been given £2 million “to support games IP run by Abertay University, and open to applications from any eligible company located in the UK.”
The university had 57 applications ask for this initial round of funding, before selecting six winning studios: Bookmarked Games, Dry Ice Studios, FluffyLogic, Setgo, 14 Principles and Triple B Games.
FluffyLogic are really excited about their gallop into social gaming in the form of their latest game UrZoo (working title – enter our competition to name the game!). The game will involve growing, feeding and breeding your very own animals in your very own zoo. Ana Kronschnabl said:
We are really looking forward to having the chance to develop our own IP and believe UrZoo will enable us to involve our fan-base in a way previously not possible…as well as allowing players to create some of the most unbelievable species so far undiscovered by mankind!
