Bamzooki, [bamˈzuki], is an a priori artlang created for a projected animated TV-series and open-world videogame for the BBC London. The language has its own writing system that combines a system of abugida with logographic ideograms.

The language is spoken by a race of extrarrestrial criters that have been laying dormant on Earth for an undetermined amount of millenia, and are discovered in the present day. They belong to two subspecies that share a common language divided into two dialects.
