A Dinosaur Hunting And Eating Video Game

May 8, 2013


This is a video showing some prototype footage of The Stomping Land, a multiplayer survival game about a tribe of people who live on an island and hunt and eat dinosaurs as their primary food source. The only problem is, after you kill a little dinosaur and start skinning it for meat, the BIG dinosaurs show up and want to eat it AND you. Then you develop new weapons and traps and eventually you're riding dinosaurs and, God willing, getting married and banging one.

You can salvage resources, build traps, and use tools and abilities that allow you to survive a little longer. Different dinosaurs behave differently, and players must learn how to best hunt or use them to their advantage. Since it's multiplayer, you can use other people to create elaborate traps and strategies that require cooperation--so it seems as if forming tribes is recommended.

Currently, the footage above is the game at a prototype stage. You can vote for The Stomping Land on Steam Greenlight here, if not donate to the Kickstarter here. The developers--who have worked on games like Skyrim and Dungeon Defenders--are hoping to raise $20,000.

I dunno, I'm not sure how i feel about eating dinosaurs meat. I mean, what if I put all this effort into hunting and killing a little dinosaur, wind up crying over its scaled little carcass for a while, then it doesn't even taste good? WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE ME THEN? "Starving to death." Oh, right. It tastes just like chicken, it tastes just like chicken, it tastes just like chicken.

Hit the jump for the video demo.

Thanks to Matt, who informed me he's a dinosaur hunting pro. You hear that, Turok? Sounds like you've got some competition!

    I actually like what you've acquired here; this is a really well written article. I understand your stuff and I’m satisfied with the posting you have given us.

  • kyler

    not hurp

  • Does look like a great idea.

    OMG this game looks cool! I don't know anything about game development but $20K seems really small for a game this cool. Schilling needed $100 mil for his and never even finished.

    Looks like a marvelous idea, although most of the dinosaurs moved at ridiculous speeds in the vid and the gallimimusae went down very fast ( after one arrow) , but i geuss/hope that is due to the prototypestage

  • Also, all the dinos look boringly green & featherless

  • goki

    An indian...hunting dinosaurs ? "Turok" is it you ? :)

  • RDarker

    I know right? No one remembers Turok? And no damn feathers?! WTF!

  • Matticus Morgan

    how long ago did you get with the game devs to begin making this game GW?

  • Mainarynox

    & it will have full oculus rift support if they reach $200k. Can't wait!

    Looks cool.
