Dinosaur Dungeon is a game where you explore a dungeon full of puzzles, hidden traps and as the title has it, Dinosaurs!

Dinosaur Dungeon is a prototype and a concept piece for a larger and more ambitious project with a solid foundation. It has been heavily influenced by the original design pitch for the unreleased N64 game originally known as 'Dinosaur Planet'.

How do you save? Or can you?

Game crashed after dying against the boss. Have to start over again.

Since it's so short right now there is no save feature; however you will restart in the same room if you die. It wasnt a high priority during my MA course.

Using arrows in a fight is confusing because you have to hold rmb (right mouse button) to pull out the bow, hold lmb (left mouse button) for a bit, and then let go of lmb.

But I mess up, either cuz:

- I let go of the rmb instead of the lmb

- forget to hold the lmb for long enough.


But it's a cool game!

Yeah I'll admit I was experimenting with the way you can shoot arrows for both PC controls and xbox controllers. I had this idea of lining up your shot and letting go, but I may have not implemented it in a way that was accessible which was a mistake on my end.

When I get round to finishing the next update I'll be focusing a lot on updating the controls. I've already added a solution for key rebinds so it should help.

I think it's really good. I love the Starfox Adventure theme! The camera movement is really fluid and the controls are solid. My only issue is that the combat against the Dinosaurs a bit... stale. Could be a bit more interactive. Also, I think it could really benefit from some sort of experience or leveling system. Otherwise, amazing!

Gave it a go....



Thanks! I've left a response on your video. Working towards the next version update.

looks great except for the character's name

It's subject to change. It's only a prototype.
