Hello Moddb community!

Our first tech demo powered by the CryEngine 3 is finally released!
As the player you have to survive a tropical island with deadly Velociraptors lurking around the corner!
We hope you will enjoy these first steps as we embark on a journey taking us millions of years into the past!

Please note that the current tech demo is only a proof of concept showing basic AI behavior like stalking, resting and basic approaches to pack behavior.
We are currently concentrating our efforts on creating the complex ecosystem that existed in North America 65,5 million years ago step by step and constantly expand the world and the animals that lived during that time.
However the tech demo is by no means a representation of that and the environment aswell as the dinosaur design, animation and AI are only made for test purposes and will be replaced at some point in the future.

The core idea behind this game is to create a free-roaming open-world game experience where you as either a human or even a dinosaur can explore the different prehistoric environments and locations with their vast variety of inhabitants - most notably the dinosaurs - living in a realistic and life-like ecosystem.
The game play will mainly be driven by survival and puzzle solving but in addition to that will also feature for example mission-based, story-driven and dinosaur-based gameplay modes that we will attend in the future.
Furthermore some of the game modes will feature entirely original dinosaurs, characters and stories currently known under the codename CRYNOSAURS or most of the iconic dinosaurs and structures from the JURASSIC PARK franchise.

Thanks for your interest and your support!

T-Rex Coming in 2015 ... New Raptor AI Video


While we've been mostly concentrating on Crynosaurs for the last year, we also collaborated with Colin on Jurassic Park Aftermath and finally brought our JP Raptor to life - check out the trailer below:

Happy new year!
The time has finally come to give you guys something to play.
We've all agreed our progress is far enough along to share it with everyone.
We hope you enjoy it. :)
Remember folks, this is just the first step of many more toward our goal. It is far from perfection.
Some of you will encounter some interesting bugs, most of which we are painfully aware of and working on.
Despite the issues, we feel it is still an enjoyable experience and thought it better to give everyone something to play now as we continue development.

This first dinosaur was a learning experience in many ways for all of us involved.
As they say, the first step is always the hardest. Going forward we now hope to apply what we've learned to further refine and expand the ecosystem.
Also keep in mind, this tech demo is just a proof of concept and isn't really specific to either a Crynosaurs or RTJP game.

We're very thankful to all those who have or are still contributing their time and effort to help realize this game.
Special thanks to NTass94 who spent his whole summer holidays to get the beautiful map for the tech demo done in time.
A lot of people outside the core team contributed their time to make this demo possible.
A special thanks to all of those who supported the project by giving us constructive feedback and spreading the word.
Also, a big thanks to the entire crydev community, especially to users seithcg, beast and all of the Crytek staff!
We are truly grateful for your support.

We're still as motivated as ever and will continue to keep you updated on our progress.
We look forward to hearing your feedback on the tech demo so we can use it to make the next release that much better.
We still have a long, long way to go but if we keep at it, we're confident we can eventually get there.

We're currently expanding the team, if anyone is interested in contributing their time to the project in any way please let us know.
There are always things that need done, big and small.

Oh, I almost forgot...stay out of jungle at night. ;)

Take care and enjoy!

Alright, I have a few questions, please, if you don't feel like answering these questions then please don't answer them.

Is Single-Player Survival still planned for Crynosaurs?
Is crafting planned?
How well is the optimization for low-end PC's?
And, finally, how large will the map be?

Yes, the free-roaming survival gameplay is still our highest priority which also includes crafting.
And we try to make it accesible to as many users as possible while still retaining a high quality standard.
And the size of the map will grow as long as we want it to.

The JP version will feature the good old featherless, giant reptile - we are currently working on a new version of our T-Rex.
Crynosaurs will feature dinosaurs from the Morrison Formation which means there will be dinosaurs from the actual Jurassic period like Allosaurus or Diplodocus, but no T-Rex anymore.

Is this in reference to JP Aftermath or is the T. rex for a JP game that you alone are developing?

* About human (human race) =P
- is there any chance of making two human factions? (style Farcry3 and 4, where there is the "good guys" and "bad guys" or World of Warcraft)

Because if there are two factions, could thus increase the chances of a cooperative work among people who have never met.

Example: Player Faction "A", find another player faction "A", both decide to join forces to attack small camp of "B" faction, or both descidem join forces to survive another day in the jungle.

I say this because, it is very difficult to make friends with strangers, usually always has a pk or pvp. In case pk, you die or are attacked for no reason by another player.

So if there are two factions there is a dispute already expected and allies, .....with only the pvp and greater cooperative work.

This is just a suggestion xD
In case it interest you

Congratulations for the work toward success xD

Would like that these games, not just summarize in exploring and try to survive without having other systems with more things to do ... because otherwise the game would be very simple ..... I and my friends would like to see more things in these projects, so here it goes, some suggestions for you if feasible....

*Skill System
*Clan / Tribes System
*Multiplayer Co-op
*Multiplayer pvp?
*mode lan / private server
*Crafting System (build barracks, houses, fences, walls, traps, guns, turrets, crafting table, firepit ...)
*Playable personage: humans and dinosaurs (some types) .. have a right to this choice?

If it is possible to play with the dinosaurs, make system level, skills, special moves (skills) ....
maybe play with younger dinosaur, and the extent to which it feeds, increasing your size and go harder, longer life, more skills ...

I hope some of these ideas will serve you in the future
Thank you very much
and look forward to future updates
I hope this game will sell someday for "Steam" ... xD
we will all be there waiting someday =P

Thank you! We are building our game one step at a time and expand it as we move forward, that includes not just new missions or dinosaurs but also new game modes including most of what you have mentioned. But right now we are concentrating on the dinosaur behavior and the inventory and health system for the survival game play first. We also made some very basic tests with playable dinosaurs a while ago as you can see in this video:

I thought that your decision after the split with Saurian was to focus solely on human gameplay (source: Facebook.com). I was also under the impression that this was one of the main reasons for the split. Is this not necessarily the case?

The issue was that Saurian wanted to focus solely on dinosaur gameplay while we were open to different options but we are concentrating on human survival gameplay first while still keeping other options in mind for the future as this has always been planned as an ever-expanding product which also includes RTJP as part of it.
