And God said, “let there be trees”…

New screenshots from Visions development. Can’t see the forest for all of the trees! 😉

We are working to grow our development team and we need Manager level leaders as well as dedicated developers in Programming, Art, Quest team, Marketing, Research, Administration, Music, and Worldbuilding.

We are developing a Christian MMORPG. Make the dream come true! Many said it could not be done, but “with God, all things are possible!”

HBTZ converts to LLC structure

On September 11, 2009 Heaven’s Blessings Tiny Zoo converted the business structure from sole proprietor to LLC. This is yet another step in taking action to build a larger stronger team, and preparing for bigger things to come in the near future. This conversion to LLC was made for legal purposes, and has no effect on the actual work that we are doing at Heaven’s Blessings Tiny Zoo, which is making great family friendly games for Christ! Thank you for your support.


Laurene Wells is the owner of Heaven’s Blessings Tiny Zoo and the Producer of both Chariots and Visions. To learn more about her company and the games they make please visit the website

New Music Director added to the Visions team!

Heaven’s Blessings Tiny Zoo has accepted Rick Lane as the new Music Director for the Visions game development team!  Rick began working with sound and lighting in 1976.  Over the many years since he have worked in the studio, theater and motion picture industry with both lighting and sound.  He is a song writer/ composer, plays several instruments but guitar is his main instrument. Rick played music professionally for six years around southern Arizona and has worked as a studio musician for Parr Sound Studios in Corvallis, Montana . He has been a worship leader in various churches in Tucson, Arizona; Salt lake city, Utah; and western Montana for the past 13 years. He is currently working with the artist development department for the Incubator group out of Cheshire , Oregon as one of their new Christian artists.  As the new Music Director for Visions, Rick has made a commitment to see the game development through launch at least.  We are excited to have him as the newest leader on our game development team!

We are still recruiting for other Leadership positions on the development team. Quest Director and Art Director are still open as well.  We are actively seeking to build and strengthen our leadership structure to prepare for the growth of our team to a much larger game development staff.  We are of course still accepting applications for non-management positions as well.

We have filled 3 Director positions on the Visions team. Mark Dynna has been promoted to Programming Team Director, and Tim Wright maintains his position as the Marketing Director.  Other manager level positions still open!  Are you looking for Game Development experience? Apply to our volunteer team today!
