Dino D-Day is an exciting new First Person Shooter from 800 North (AKA Digital Ranch Interactive). This is an HL2:OB mod that has served as a prototype for a commercial release we are currently in the final stages of preparing. It is playable though we have not been supporting it for several months as we've focused all of our efforts on the commercial product. The commercial release is slated for March 1, 2011 only on Steam. It is a fast-paced multiplayer game with 12 playable classes including 3 dinosaurs. You've played World War II games...but have you played a World War II game with dinosaurs?

The final weeks are at hand! The dinosaur invasion is upon us! Dino D-Day is just days away! After two-and-a-half years in development the game that packs Nazis and dinosaurs into one explosive package is now ready for release...mostly.

While it is true we were shooting for a March 1 release on Steam we will instead push that back to March 29. Reason being, to make things like this:

A large and angry dinosaur

You will encounter this dinosaur if you play Dino D-Day!
In the coming days we will be distributing Beta keys for the game. The Beta will include all classes and all playable dinosaurs. It will ship with one map that will be playable in two game modes - King-of-the-Hill and Team Deathmatch.

Details of how these Beta keys will be distributed is forthcoming but hopefully everyone here at ModDB will be interested and excited in taking part. If you're interested, drop me an email and let me know. We're looking for people who want to help us make the game better not only in these final weeks before release but as we move forward from there.

One other note: very soon I'll be creating a page for the game on IndieDB since Dino D-Day is now a full-on Indie game that will soon be available for purchase on Steam. For the time being though I'll continue posting news to this page.

Thanks to all for playing the mod! We on the team really hope you enjoy playing the full-game as much as we've enjoyed making it!

Anyone know a fix for this? When I'm launching the mod it closes and says this:
setuparrayprops_r: array prop '(null)' is at index zero.

It would of been better if multiplayer is free until single player is finished.. then charge 20 bucks. This is really bad as it is now.

Eh, I think that would be weird to have it free, then suddenly charge. That'd just **** alot of people off.

That said, they could sell it for 10$ until SP is completed, then up it to 20$, while all people whom already bought it get SP. It's an incentive to "buy now and get SP free later!", you'd sell 4x as many copies @10$ most likely, making up in quantity of sales.

Have you seen the games you can get for 20$ these days, from Indie companies like yourself?

Store.steampowered.com

All the games here have infinitely more work put into them and cost the same as yours.

While I like the idea of your mod alot, in the end it results in some kind of unrefined gameplay that works for a mod...but for 20$? I find it incredibly hard to put that down.

I understand you're trying to make a profit, and with licensing fees and the like, it can be hard.

But think of sales volume. There would be many more people willing to toss 10$ away, than 20$. You could have more people playing, more people spreading the mod, and in the end make more money. It's a solid tactic. Steam has shown that when games go on sale, even crappy ones, they tend to sell 300% more than they do at default.

Slicing 50% off your game could net you more profit in the long run. I'm just saying.

You're indie, I get that, but alot of Indie studios work their way up from 5, 10$, 15$, to 20$ eventually. Just starting at 20$ and only offering from what all reviews and videos say, is a poor MP...you're shooting yourself in the foot. Use some business strategy. All the people I've asked who bought it said they don't really like the game, but maybe in the future it will get better, but they don't feel they got their moneys worth, as it still feels mod quality.

Hey I got an idea, let's make a free mod, but we don't have very good animators or modelers....lets just recycle that Day of defeat games models...and some of those dinosaur models from the various failed Jurassic park mod ideas. Cool....now put a $20 price tag on it. GENIUS!

Quiet you.

Some people are actually trying to make money off their hard work here and do not need your incessant whining for free-content to deter them.

Hard work? Animations are bad, sound effects are bad, models are recycled, maps are recycled. But be my guest buy this "mod." Feed the idea that game developers can lower the bar as far as quality and still charge for a sloppy product.
