If it doesn't involve comparing the meerkats, I don't want to know.
Awwwww that looks adorable!! If the gameplay is fun, i'll definitely throw some Wii points at this...
Oh great I better not let mr father know about this or he might still my Wii.
Looks cool imo, it's like Meerkat Manor!
I have a niece that will love this type of game.
I...you're kidding, right?
Either you've never played Pikmin, or you've never played an animal sim. Either one needs to be rectified immediately!
Dig a tunnel, Dig Dig a tunnel. Quick before the Hyena come. Ha ha reminds me of Lion King 1 1/2. Finally a game starring Timon! But where's Pumba?
That does look much better than I would have imagined -- this is a WiiWare game? Sounds nice!
Umm... I expect there will be a HEALTHY amount of options, right? Or you will definitly lose me.
If Aleksandr and Sergei aren't present, I'm not interested.
Its Meekat Manor: THE GAME!!
It does look cute something I might look into... after FF4+DLC, Sword and soldiers, Icarian and Cave Story
Reminds me of simant in a meerkat sort of way.
The music in the trailer sounds extremely similar to the music in Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter.
The music reminds me of Savannah valley from Warioland shake it.
The video actually made me intrigued. At first, I thought this was going to be a horrible juvenile version of Meerkat Manor, but the video made me re-consider. Hopefully it becomes quite good, since I know some people in my family would absolutely love it.
Never played an "animal sim" before. First time I've ever seen another point and click game so close to pikmin's point and clickiness
Seems Pretty simples to me wonder if they do insurance
I wouldn't call this a Sim, but I wouldn't call it a Pikmin ripoff, but I can some potential. Am I interested in getting it? No, but it has potential.
Odd one there. At first glance it kinda reminded me of SimAnt which honestly isn't a good thing really. But it doesn't seem to suffer from the same control issue that plagued that game so I don't know, maybe it'll actually turn out kinda decent.
This game has potential. I just hope there is a zoom funcion to get a better view on that cute meerkats.
I can't believe someone had the idea "Let's make a game... about meerkats". Genius.
What, no Smoking Jacket?
I have to buy this because it`s finnish game .
Meerkat Manor: The game?
this looks kinda cool
