Digital Dream Entertainment LLC in collaboration with Tatem Games announced Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn for the PC. This game is a sequel of the original classic dinosaur hunting video game, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter. Carnivores is a first person shooting (FPS) game where players hunt the largest and most dangerous creatures to ever exist — DINOSAURS! The game was originally released for the PC back in 1998 to great reviews and a loyal fan following. Since then there have been several Carnivores versions on mobile and one for the PlayStation Network. Key members of the original team have been reunited to develop this game. Yaroslav Kravchenko, the game’s original creator says, “I’m very excited to work with Digital Dreams Entertainment LLC along with members of the original team, to bring Carnivores: Reborn back to its rightful home on the PC.”
The majority of the work for Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn is complete. Technology and assets from the PlayStation game have been used to build this game. Digital Dreams Entertainment LLC is reaching out to fans for assistance funding the latest stages of game development including: testing, q & a, fine tuning, and polishing. The game will be available on pc and has been approved for Valve’s Steam network once it’s complete. Digital Dreams Entertainment LLC has gone on record as saying “Fans will being given a chance to literally control the games content, to help us build a bigger and better game but regardless of the success of our Kickstarter campaign this game is going to be released.”
Why should fans get excited? The dinosaur artificial intelligence and behavior has been improved to increase the action ratio of the game; they are smarter and more dangerous. Their movement is more realistic too, if they smell you down wind, depending on dinosaur they will either flee or track you. Deaths are more intense, there’s an element of danger and loss now. The open world environment has been improved and beautified, the environment has a higher visual fidelity and we’ve also spent time reworking the sound design. Revamped game economics and progression will allow Players to develop their own ways to hunt. All of these things have been completely executed to the design already.
What will the kickstarter help to do? It will give players deeper gameplay with new weapons, equipment and upgrades to existing equipment. It will include more dinosaur variations and mutated rare dinosaurs. And of course the extra funding will allow developers to be as thorough as possible when it comes to fine tuning the game. All of this is BEFORE the stretch goals are even addressed and they are OUT OF THIS WORLD good. Stretch goals include more weapons, dinosaurs, playmodes and even hunting marine creatures!
