Dinosaurs have been unleashed on an old military controlled island due to an experiment gone awry. A team of mercenaries have been dispatched to contain the threat.
Primal Carnage is a multiplayer first person shooter where players must work as a team to complete game mode dependent objectives. In Primal Carnage, you can play as one of two factions: dinosaurs or humans. Both are filled with special unique classes and abilities that complement and contrast each other.

I'm not sure if anyone here knows or not but I read the forums on a daily basis. Even though I may not always reply I'm really interested to hearing gameplay ideas and to find out what you guys want to see in the game. Just please bear with us, since as I mentioned before and I hate to use this excuse but, we are a virtual team and have no funding/backing and do this on any spare time we have. A lot of the ideas that we would like to create and add to this game we just simply can't do right away. For example I would love a full 10 hour, single player/co-op story mode experience with a great story, open island world (Oblivion, Fallout) to explore and do missions, etc.

What we plan to do is release a short, fun multiplayer experience first and if sales are good we will keep adding new game modes, classes, maps, and even a full story mode as we progress. Of course, the DLC would be free as I don't believe in charging for DLC.

A lot of the ideas I’ve been reading on this site are fantastic and I hope to implement most of them. Then, of course there are some ideas that just make you “sigh” – lol. In any case, I really appreciate everyone sharing their opinions on what we showcase and what we should add. You guys are just like our Dev team; we all want to play and create the amazingly awesome dinosaur game that no one has ever created and that we have been waiting years to play.

I'm going to try and post polls as often as I can to give you fans the option of the features we add, it may be weekly or it may be monthly. In any case, you guys are going to be able to pick what goes into this game or not. Thanks again for all your support, especially to the donors who are keeping us alive and helping us make this game - you will not be forgotten.

P.S We’ll be adding a lot of new media to the donors section tomorrow as well as information on some of our other classes to get opinions and feed back on, so check it out !

Thanks for keeping up with us and have fun gaming! Ashton Andersen[Game Designer]

Meet the Support Class: The Dilophosaurus

Health: 175
Sprint speed: TBA

Cannot be trapped by nets
Can free other dinosaurs from nets
Ranged Attack
Speed/Attack team buffer


Tactical Summary:

The Dilophosaurus' primary function is to provide support to the other dinosaurs. The Dilophosaurus can destroy nets that have captured other dinosaurs. It is also immune to the effects of nets, making the Dilophosaurus an admirable adversary to the Trapper. The Dilophosaurus is also the only dinosaur with a ranged attack.

Spit: This special attack blurs the humans vision and causes them to stumble, slowing their movement speed. Causes a small amount of periodic damage for the duration of the effect.

A simple bite that causes minimal damage to an enemy player.

Screech: The Dilophosauruscan screech, providing a speed/strength increase to nearby dinosaurs.

Sounds nice - although that skree-boost thing doesn't sound too realistic, lol. I think it would rather just scare the humans.

Well the dinosaur also didn't spit any type of venom, either. That's been admitted to be creative license from Jurassic Park. In that sense it's already not a perfectly realistic representation of the creature, and that is perfectly fine considering games need a certain degree of fantastical elements to make them fun.

Elementalist May 30 2010 replied:

Why not? It makes perfect sense. By the dinosaur screeching, the other dinosaurs around (assuming they're intelligent enough to know they're on the same 'team') would know that they've got reinforcements who are equally determined and won't run out on them, thus they'll double their efforts.

Basically the dinosaur equivalent of humans shouting "Let's go!" or whatever.

But does the Dilo choose to skree whenever he wants to? I'd rather make him skree when he gets a not fatal hit, so it would inspire others to help him out.

Otreum May 30 2010 replied:

So any game where there is non human characters vs human characters is like left 4 dead?

I suppose it's the same sortof arguement that avid counter strike players used/use when a game had a desert eagle in it or an mp5 "OMG! this rips off counter strike, it has a DEAGLE".... -_-

The game is dinosaurs vs humans, not zombies or "infected boss's" vs humans, there are big toothy carnivorous beasties wanting to chow down on humans....and i'm sure that being chased by a t-rex or raptor compared to being chased by a tank would be much more scary.

also, i am talking baout how the game is not super plot centered and more gameplay centered

and how mods and updates will play a significant role

never could find a copy of hunted. What was wrong with that game in your overall opinion? anything great about it?

Ralok May 30 2010 replied:

actually the game was really fun, its was like playing a b movie.

It had poor voice acting

and my problem wasspecifically the lack of people, you go back in time and you know hundred of otehr people are going back in time but you only ever see four

there should have been whole communities, it was a thematic error

it just felt like if it had an extra month of development it would have gotten alot farther

aswell the weapons and dinosaurs were obvious
and out of place

but time travel was a constant theme and they were showing that some dinosaurs were misplaced because of time travel
but the gamme felt fun, and it was well paced

It's also the most popular dinosaur duel and one with the most debate. So of course as developers we are going to use it to better market / target our game to the proper audiences. Also if you go to the store, it has many other design options.

Wow, I think the PR guy here has failed by biting into the sterotyical hype that is even mentioning free DLC. The majority of DLC has always been free and PC gamers simply expect that. Just because there are a few inexperienced companies charging for DLC doesn't make them the majority, it makes them the few companies with suites who are so thick headed and greedy they can't begin to see the benefits of free DLC.

How exactly did he fail? This is an indie game. Their first target was/is to make a fun multiplayer experience of a game; something we've all longed for in a loooong while.

The fact that they also want to then *free of charge* create a singleplayer campaign and stuff like that, is not something you should take for granted, pal. DLC in the form of modifications 'n such have always been free, but complete expansions have not and it's safe to say that adding an entire SP campaign to a MP game is not just something you casually do.

Context? Be grateful for what you get, don't "expect" anything, that just makes you arrogant and greedy.

Its effects are nice I gues. Would become boring if all Dinosaurs basicly had the same skills so its an nice fresh addition to the game. Too bad it seems that at Melee its going to be bad, should be able to beat an human in melee(not sure whether there are melee ideas for humans?).

Can't wait for next preview, hopefully of the Compy. I wonder whether you guys used the Swarm ability I suggested earlier =].
