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!

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!

It looks absolutely gorgeous, but its Fxxxxx crap that it crashes my firefox everytime and that I had to create an account and then it doesnt work anyway and just keeps crashing. It just pointless downloading this, I´m pretty sure it will be good in the future when it WORKS. as for now its waste of time to download it. tried both versions non works. but it looks very promising.

Btw, they predicted that nearly all raptors had feathers; most of the feathers just didn't get fossilised.

They confirmed that feathers will be added later. Also, the Velociraptors themselves will be replaced with things like Troodonts.
