Bestiary was created for A Game By Its Cover 2019 by Michael Koloch and monkeyotoshi.

The cartridge used for inspiration was "Bestiary" by @EveTruLev:

You are on a field trip on an alien planet and observe the local fauna. Spot the animals and take their pictures with your camera to collect them all in your bestiary! Can you spot the rare Piggo? Or the sly Bux?
