    According to this story, Meerkats going gaming (written by TV.com's own Tim Surette), Meerkat Manor may join the ranks of the gaming elite.

    It'd work if they made it the right genre.

    I think a Micro Management/Survival/Strategy game would work. You basically ran your own family, from a space view, you basically send your meercats to gather and such, you could control them individually, or as a group. You could do auto-forage, or follow them to direct their jobs. It'd be a MUST to have waypoint-click keys, so if while you're foraging, your burrow is under some sort of alert, one press of a button and you can switch over and go there instantly.

    That's probrably a small feature I'd like to see. I don't see the game really working any other way other than a strategy game. It'd be nice to have Challenge Mode to put you into certain scenarios, such as turning a nearly-dead family into a thriving one, or controlling one family and turn out as the top family of the Kalihari.

    It'd work. They would just have to play it smartly.
