Dinosaurs A Prehistoric Adventure is an ARPG where you could play as +15 dinosaurs set in a fictional world. Even though the setting of this game is completely fictional, the dinosaurs included are modeled based on real world findings.

Each dinosaur plays and would react differently towards different environments. One of the reasons for this is because each dinosaur has different survival capabilities. This would mean that an environment could be much harder to a point where it’s unforgiving for some dinosaurs to traverse compared to others and vice versa. This helps emphasize a sense of variety and depth for each dinosaur that is both meaningful and impactful.

Another aspect besides the dinosaur’s adaptability to the environment, is that each environment also pose its own obstacles and challenges that impacts each dinosaur differently. This adds another layer of strategy that would make the game more exciting even in its later stages.

Dinosaurs A Prehistoric Adventure includes two main modes, the adventure mode, where players would be able to play as a dinosaur and explore vast landscapes, and an exhibition mode where players would get to know more about the dinosaurs they’ve encountered, the world and lore that they’re in, and specific events they’ve encountered during their time in the adventure mode. Because of this, the exhibition mode becomes a very important aspect for players, as it would help inform players of the enemies they’re facing, the challenges they have to overcome, survival techniques they need to master, and preparations they have to undertake.

Lore
The world of Dinosaurs A Prehistoric Adventure brings players to a post-apocalyptic prehistoric world where pods have erupted and released poisonous material to the atmosphere. The rapid increase of poisonous material in the air transform much of the inhabitants into mutated violent beings. Only a few manage to withstand this mutation and are able to harness the power without destroying themselves. As more fell victim to this contamination, they become the only hope in preventing the spread of this corruption and restore the world to its rightful order.

• ARPG elements combined with survival elements such as hunger, thirst, and much more

As for the adventure mode, how are you planning on creating different attack methods and so on, so the active skills become different?
Not trying to come off as offensive or anything, but aren't dinosaurs a bit limited in their attack styles compared to other characters in ARPG's?

That’s a really good question, and yeah, dinosaurs are very limited in terms of attack, cause unlike most characters in an ARPG, dinosaurs don’t and can’t use projectiles, without having them look too out of place, so we only rely on melee.

To help give a general overview, we separated the main attacks for each dinosaurs into 5: light, critical, heavy, stun, and special attack. Jump can also be used for areal offense but it does not do much damage, the purpose of jump attack is to simply give a brief stagger to multiple foes so you could escape or jump into a group of enemies.

Because of this, we emphasize more on exploration, strategy, and survival. Exploration is key in this game because it would help you know just what you’ll be facing, where the resources are located, and most importantly which dinosaur is best suited for the job. Failing to understand an environment (level) would result in the dinosaur dying or getting killed.

A good but very broad example of this is when, let’s say we choose the desert environment, using a T-rex in this environment is not necessarily the best way to go, sure it’s very powerful in terms of attacks, and has a good amount of health, but it’s also relatively slow, and would need to eat regularly, so having this dinosaur being played where prey are relatively fast, is not the best way to go and it’ll most likely die.

Hope this answers your question! I must say that it’s a bit difficult for us to give a good enough answer at this time as we feel it would spoil future updates for the game. Tune in for more updates from us, we have much to show these next few months.
