Dinosaurs on a Spaceship is a retro-styled futuristic top-down survival horror game. Which following the title will have the player facing mecha-dinosaurs invading the "Cradle", a spaceship constructed to carry the remains of the human species in cryogenic sleep to a new world leaving a heavily polluted earth. The twist is: the dinosaurs did the same when facing their extinction. They left the doomed planet to the lowly mammals and other lesser beasts, vowing to return when the Earth was once again suitable for life. You play as the captain of the Cradle, woken by the malfunctioning ship AI. Your task is to fully restore the ship AI and exterminate the vindictive, and now homeless mecha-dinosaurs. The game emphasizes exploration, puzzle solving, stealth, and action presented in a dark, and terrifying world. This is possible via our dynamic illumination system and a procedurally generated, fully analog soundtrack.
