Jurassic Jetpacks – ORION: Dino Beatdown

By Adam Smith on February 20th, 2012.

I’m in two minds about this multiplayer shooter from the ORION: Prelude team that somehow isn’t ORION: Prelude. Is ORION: Dino Beatdown a brilliant name for a game, or is it a horrible name for anything? One thing I do know, despite the laudable presence of dinosaurs and jetpacks, I’d be a lot happier if the dinosaurs were actually using the jetpacks. As it is, this is a game of cooperative shooting in which teams of men must survive in massive environments populated by hordes of hungry monster-lizards. And despite my quibbling, it looks pretty damn good.

By Alec Meer on January 30th, 2012.

THE REAL MONSTER IS MAN, etc

Here’s a clever wee indie FPS we somehow missed last year, but now it comes accompanied with the news that a full-blown remake is on the way. I’m going to say a few words to you. Let’s see how you feel about them.

World War 1. Dinosaurs.

Double The Dinosaurs: Orion Prelude Grows

By John Walker on May 25th, 2011.

Actual screenshot at last!

I really wish Orion: Prelude would hurry up. I feel like we’ve been posting about it for six hundred years. It’s actually only been about eight months, making me massively unfair. But still. The exciting news today? TWICE AS MANY DINOSAURS! Spiral’s FPS multiplayer will now include the T-Rex, raptor, rham-phorynchus (as everyone was expecting), stegosaurus, argentinosaurus, and crowd favourite, triceratops. There’s pictures of them below, and some screenshots (at last), along with an amazing new video.

‘Allo, Saurus – ORION: Prelude

By Alec Meer on November 12th, 2010.

Doyouthinkhesawus?

Dinosaurs, dinosaurs, dinosaurs, dinosaurs, dinosaurs, dinosaurs, dinosaurs. Oh you boys and your zombies – don’t you want something a little different? Something, say, featuring bus-sized, man-eating lizards?

DINOFIGHT! New Primal Carnage Footage

By John Walker on September 29th, 2010.

It's jaw was covered in bloody logos.

Primal Carnage, the dinosaurs versus humans multiplayer project from independent developers Lukewarm Media, has released some awesome new footage. It’s accompanied by quite a change – the team has switched from Ungine to the Unreal Development Kit, and what was already looking spectacular now looks super-spectacular. Below, along with lots of new details and screenshots, is an epic dino-fight, in realtime in-game UDK footage. I checked.

Fragging With Dinosaurs: Primal Carnage

By John Walker on February 5th, 2010.

That doesn't quite seem big enough.

Man versus dinosaur. We all know the days are coming. In preparation for the ultimate war, there’s Primal Carnage. It’s to be a team-based FPS multiplayer, in which one side plays as the humans, the other the giant stompy reptiles. It’s from indie team Lukewarm Media, previously noticed for their unreleased mod/full game, Light Spire. But we’re focusing on dinosaurs just now, and Primal Carnage has just opened itself a website, announced a deal with Ungine, and offers a few tech videos to look at.
