In an email exchange with IGN, Pixel People developer LambdaMu Games revealed that future updates to its city builder-cum-clone manufacturing game will include "regular" job types, animal collection rewards, and a Discotheque.
According to the dev, we can look forward to stumbling across more unusual DNA-splicing opportunities, including the infamous "green splice".
Something to do with frogs, we'd wager. Like Jurassic Park's Dr Malcolm once said: "life finds a way."
A greater selection of "normal" jobs is also on its way to Utopia, with some due to appear in a mini-update to Pixel People this very week.
In addition to introducing fresh professions, LambdaMu will add some new buildings to Pixel People's planning permission folder, including a Ballpark, a Pizzeria, and a Discotheque.
LambdaMu also hinted at plans to allow players to "balance" new properties on Astroglass. Sounds dangerous. We like it.
While this week's Pixel People update will include some new professions, we'll have to wait for future refreshes to test out the majority of these planned additions.
In the meantime, the dev recommends we complete our animal collections in preparation for incoming pet-based rewards.
