Report article RSS Feed Dino D-Day Beta and Release News

We will be distributing Beta keys starting on March 1 in advance of our official Steam release on March 29.

Posted by c_b_fofep on Feb 22nd, 2011

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!

Might want to contact Valve about it

We'll I wouldn't quite say that the people who're most likely going to be playing this game have partaken in WW2 in anyway.

Now, if they'd just start teaching english per standart in their schools they'd be good to go.

By the way, all countries, also french, usa and england made historically big mistakes/bad thinks... But: Who cares bout a nuclear weapon in a civil city? who cares about surpressing india? It is not that I want to say "man forgive germany" (no, just forgive the current generation, because they have nothing to do with WWII), I just get started ****** about so many people out of GB, FR and USA being ignorant and always point with the finger at germany. Every country have blood at their hands, not just the "evil german's" :/
Imo that is the bad part, most countrys forget what they have done, but everything bad that humankind have done should be remembered so that we will not make the same mistakes later. So do not just remember "bad germany" remember what other countries have done, too.

Can't wait to see the final product. It looks well polished. The most important thing of all is balance. There should be no good corners or safe spots to camp. No weapon can be overpowered, etc. These guys should know what they're doing, though. They already know this. I can't wait to see the beta in action.
