Indie developer Clapperheads have announced a bodycam horror game titled Zoochosis.

The promising new horror game, Zoochosis, is expected to launch in Q2 2024 for PC (via Steam).

Players find themselves playing the role of a zookeeper at night, where they learn the animals have been infected with a parasite turning them into bloodthirsty mutants.

Here’s a rundown of the game, plus announcement trailer:

Zoochosis is a spine-chilling bodycam horror simulation game where you play a zookeeper about to start their first night shift. As you strap on your bodycam and go about your rounds, you notice strange behaviour from some of the animals in the enclosures, behaviour unlike anything you have ever seen before. A terrifying parasite is spreading, mutating some of the animals into grotesque versions of themselves, blood-thirsty and ready to do anything to kill you to escape. You must identify the infected animals and make vaccines to cure them before the parasite spreads out of control and to the wider zoo. Unravel the mysteries of the zoo and save the animals to save yourself as your choices will ultimately determine your ending. Will you survive the night?


  • Become the night zookeeper: Interact with the animals, take care of them, choose and prepare their meals, restock and clean up after them in the enclosure.

  • Save the animals!: Something is terribly wrong with the animals. Can you unravel the mysteries of the zoo and save them? You must discover the cause of the infection, create a vaccine and cure them before it’s too late.

  • Choices matter: Which animals will you save? How will you cure them? Your decisions will be key to your survival and the ultimate ending of the story.

  • Bodycam footage: Strap on your bodycam and capture all the terrifying events of the evening. Explore the darkest corners of the zoo with a unique perspective adding a new level of tension and horror to your quest.



Got into gaming thanks to a nice old lady who lived across the street. Enjoy most genres of games.
