TRAVEL THE UNKNOWN

Hit the road to search for fossils of extinct species, that once ruled the Earth. Explore different US States, force your way through mud, water, and various environmental hazards, explore vast terrain, destroy rocks or bodies of water to reach your prize. Use many tools, such as chainsaw, shovel or pickaxe to achieve your goal.

EXPLORE EXCAVATION AREA

Collecting fossils is not that easy. Especially if you have to dig it by yourself. Use your georadar to search for clues and discover the remains of many extinct species, adding up to the insight about the Earth's distant past. If you think that all you have to do is to find right area, then you are wrong! It's just a beginning. Use your tools to get rid of obstacles, dig bones with shovel and pickaxe. But... watch out! They are very fragile.

PREPARE DELICATE FOSSILS

Precious fossil is very delicate - you need to carefully clean the bones, making sure that nothing will get damaged before you can finally assemble a complete prehistoric skeleton. Manage your know-how, using the portable in-game tablet and become the world-renown paleontologist.

Dear paleontologists!

It's been over a year since our last major update (v2.2), and oh, what a journey it has been!

We've been working hard to make things run smoother, add new features, discuss and try new ideas for the content. 💡 And today, we stand on the brink of an exciting new chapter as we unveil what awaits you in the newest update v2.5, the Anniversary Update! 🎉

Can’t wait to try it? Here's a sneak peek at what's coming your way... 🔍

  • New dinosaur - Corythosaurus!
  • New reptile - Pteranodon!

  • Dinosaur eggs - if you’ve noticed 🔴 red areas on the map, start breaking rocks because you’ve been given a chance to find a dinosaur egg here! Find it a special place in your museum.

  • Unique decorations - if the map marks your surroundings 🟢 green, take a look around! This is a sign that there’s a unique plant hiding somewhere here. Give it a shot with your drone to use it in your museum as a decoration.

  • Speaking of the museum - we’ve prepared more texture variants for floors, walls and even the museum pillars. ✨ You’re now able to choose the look of exposition barriers and the background sounds for your exposition halls to give it a finishing touch.
  • New dig sites - if you are a thorough paleontologist you will also discover new dig sites on the previously 🔓 unlocked locations.
  • At least 7 new achievements! 🏆
  • The overhaul of the game’s lighting and weather system, and added 3D volumetric clouds on the Ultra graphics settings to elevate gaming experience. 🎮

  • Performance optimization for smoother gameplay.
  • New options in settings ⚙️ - ability to control sharpness of the image or to increase the scale of User interface.
