First ever?

Spontaneous thought: Raptor movement must sync better with floor. Right now he's sliding across the floor which makes everything look horridly awkward. Still watching the video, just wanted to share this.

I don't recall that he slides; I had it timed out pretty well at one point, so unless I messed something up.  I may have to look at that again, possibly with the engine in slow-motion to be sure about it.  If it's giving that sense, that's definitely not good, though.

Look closely on the video. When the raptor puts his foot down to move, you can clearly see how the foot slides across the floor while he's taking his next step. It's much less visible, and I think even gone, when the raptor is dashing/running.

Ah, dang -- I think I might have accidentally not committed a change there.  Ah well.  I'll fix it up next week sometime; in the super short term I can't push changes to the demo level because the industrial one got eaten partially (lights got strange).  Blargh.

I meant for stars but if you want me ill be happy to join in on this even if the fact that they kept a raptor around for an emergency makes no sense at all.

It makes perfect sense!  If all your machines are getting hacked and attacking you, you have to do something else.  If your human soldiers get slaughtered, you need to do something else.  If there's nobody on the battlefield but the enemy, you might as well drop in a miniature genetically-hardened Godzilla.  The guy from Jurassic World was an idiot mainly because he thought it would be useful to have raptors in any remote proximity to friendly troops, haha. ;)

I didn't find it too noticeable before when playing it originally.   But now that you point it out.... I can see it a bit.

All that bugged me really were the funky issues with jumping in certain places, and the turning, but I already went over that elsewhere.

Though you mighta fixed that, I haven't tried the newest update.  Too much time arguing with the bloody computer in the last day and a half. 



As far as "making sense", the only bit that doesn't make sense to me is the bit where the raptor doesn't have, I dunno, lasers or something.  I mean, who wouldn't give lasers to their mad-science dinosaur?   Though maybe they just figured that the shot-bouncing thing was funnier.

Another video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0R7oRT_g8A

Only a couple of videos out at the moment, but I'm liking the reactions so far. The general "WTF" premise seems to tickle players a lot, and the reactions to the graphics have been very good. The game definitely looks a cut above what your average indie developer would accomplish. A bit of luck, and this could maybe take off. Fingers crossed!

Another couple of vids:

Generally good impressions, although the second video is a little more critical.

more coverage? lovely this is getting more attention already than starward rogue did already(at least it seems its getting to be that way) I think this should go well for you Chris particularly of course it helps that dinosaurs aren't hard to market with
but personally I'm more of a nerd for birds than dinosaurs personally.

I'm definitely waiting for this one. Games like this will bore me in 2 minutes and I'll probably have trouble getting back into it when it's done. I'll just wait till it's done and enjoy it instead.
