Saurian - Realistic Dinosaur Simulator!

Recommended Posts

Dunno if there are any other paleofauna fans here, but this project is looking really promising!

 

"We are Saurian, an independent game project who's goal is to provide the most captivating dinosaur experience ever developed for commercial gaming by recreating the Hell Creek ecosystem of 66 million years ago through the Unity 3D Game engine, giving the player the first true chance to live like a dinosaur."

Realistically feathered dromaeosaurs? YIKES!

 

Am really looking forward to this.

There is a game similar to this concept on Steam called The Isle. Didn't hear nice things about the devs so I left it alone.

Saurian looks great though.

There was no dinosaurs, the allmighty God took a lump of clay, and suddenly Adam and Eve appeared. Nope ?

Easier to simulate, but a rather boring game :)

I like the focus on a realistic reconstruction of those beings, but I'm not sure if most people will actually like these "oversized birds", the Hollywood interpretation as seen in Jurassic Park is seen as much cooler. ;p

 

It will also not be the only dinosaur/survival game out there, but it's nice to see some differentiation.

 Depends. If they added War in Heaven it could be interesting - Demons vs Angels (no cupid) in every region of the Universe as well as influencing mankind (and other creations) torward good or heinous deeds. No God Mode would be a must..

Personally, I find the modern paleological consensus that all dinosaurs didn't become extinct (just the non avian ones) to be profoundly satisfying. I will buy the shit out of a game that reflects this. My 8 year old son went through his inevitable dino phase a couple of years ago, and I went right along with him.
