Saurian is an open world, survival based game experience, giving players the opportunity to take control of several different species of dinosaur. Players will attempt to survive through several life stages, fulfilling physical needs while avoiding predators and environmental hazards in a dynamic landscape that reflects current knowledge of the game's setting, the Hell Creek ecosystem circa 66 million years ago. In a nutshell, the goal of Saurian is to provide the most captivating dinosaur experience ever developed for commercial gaming, giving the player the first true chance to live like a dinosaur.

We are currently hard at work on a playable prototype and are doing all within our power to have this out as soon as possible, so be sure to keep watching our pages for updates!

8 comments by Tomozaurus on May 5th, 2014

As we're sure you all have noticed, we've been rather quiet on the real reason everyone is here: Game progress. Since we've added a substantial number of new followers since our last major update, we thought it was high time we gave you all a little peek behind the curtains. While this in-game screen shot might not look like much compared to some of the other things we've posted, there's actually quite a lot of progress encapsulated in this scene.- Both Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops are in game. Playable.
- All of the trees are new, updated based on new information regarding their relationships to living species
- Water. Splashing. Rippling. Flowing. Water.
-While not visible in this image, we've implemented a rudimentary Day/Night cycle.
-AI development is proceeding nicely, and we're excited to show you just how awesome Rival{Theory}'s RAIN is.

"What about gameplay footage?" The truth is, while we do enjoy seeing our fans and followers foam at the mouth with anticipation, we also like making sure what we show off is polished and represents Saurian's full potential. We are still very early in development, there are a lot of improvements we want to make before we show you just how awesome this game is.What's next? Here's a short list of what you can look forward to from us in the coming weeks and months- More Dinosaurs...and some other critters too 
- A fully foliaged map
- Weather 
- MusicStay tuned and keep spreading the word, there's a LOT more to come!

I am developing a game in Unity that involves dinosaurs, and I understand how frustrating and annoying it is to code, please take your time with coding and the whole project in general, good luck with this project!

Concerning the recent glut of unsolicited "suggestions", I believe this post ( ) by Tomozaurus, one of the developers of this game, on another forum may be of some relevance.

there should be choices in the game like to fight for your kill or walk away or warning sounds and the smell of prey should be appearing of prey should mark a trail for you or the sounds of a injured or dying animal and some dangers sand traps and quicksand and there should be a quick save any where you want

Also, will you be able to kill other players? I wouldnt like that. It would be annoying. But, you could like click there name tag, and go to options, and like ask for their permission to kill them. If your doing a roleplay with that other person. That would be cool.

It is explicitly stated in the summary above that the developers are working on a playable prototype, so you may very well get your demo.

The tech demo I think should have a few species of dinos for the player and some of the game features
