This IS a dinosaur game!

Well, gee.  I like dinosaurs.  You guys do too, I take it from the commentary over on the 3d survival game side of things. 

Those who have been around long enough probably remember that back in... 2014 (I think?) we were working on a game called Cretaceous that was a strategy game about dinosaurs.  It never got off the ground.  This game is not that game. ;)  Just to be clear.

Just what is this game?  Well, I hope to have some video up later this week, actually.  But let me basically break it down like this:

1. The Starward Rogue stuff has left us with more of a shortfall even than I expected, even after all the outpouring of support.

2. Overall we still have a while to get things in order before things turn truly dire, but the idea of trying to complete an entire 3D survival game to the point where it would be ready for kickstarter is actually kind of ludicrous.

3. However, tons of awesome stuff has been happening over the last month in terms of progress toward that 3D survival game.

4. One of those things is dinosaurs and some really cool art.

5. So I thought... hey!  Why not make a stepping-stone game that actually IS about dinosaurs, but is smaller and more focused than a survival game.

6. Working on this game is not putting the 3D survival game "on hold" (per se), but rather is working on building the components for that larger game by building them into a smaller game (this one) first.

7. And the big exciting bonus is that I finally get to make that game I've wanted ever since the Sega Genesis kinda got it right...

8. The title is "In Case Of Emergency, Release Raptor."  What do you think? :)

.....really, already?  That was fast...

Okay, I *have* to say it:  What happened to "I'll bring it up in a few days, but not just yet"?   ;)

That being said, this game really is sounding more and more interesting.

Any upcoming videos or whatever yet?  Or still not ready?  I dont remember if I already asked that or not.

Also I agree with you on that particular Jurassic Park game on the Genesis, I remember playing that too,, way back when, and thinking that playing as the dinosaur was pretty awesome.  Playing as Grant was less awesome.  Hadnt really thought about that game in ages, now I kinda want to have another go at it.

I know, we were just emailing and then literally I pretty much put aside your email and came over here to write this.  I'm not sure what happened there. ;)

Bear in mind that this is wholly separate from the 3D Survival Game, so you've only been hearing about this particular game since Friday since you were on that one email thread.  But yeah, glad this is sounding interesting. :)

I hope to be able to put together at least a teaser by later in the week, but I'm not positive.

Yeah: who the heck plays as Grant? ;)  I loved that game.
