What the developers have to say:

“Greetings, hunters!

The Stomping Land game is currently under development.
  • It has had a year of progress and will continue to undergo production with frequent updates until the end of 2015.
  • The sole purpose of its current release is to have enthusiasts of survival and dinosaur games provide their first-hand insight and feedback while the game is early in development.
  • If you wish to jump into a more finalized gameplay experience, it is recommended to not purchase the game until release, as all features require balancing, bugfixing, and updates for smoother implementation.
  • The price of the game is a one time purchase, and will not increase for release, so you may choose to wait if you prefer a more complete experience from the start.
  • The purpose of the full price for Early Access is to filter in survival and dinosaur enthusiasts who embrace the development process. So if you are unsure, there is no disadvantage in waiting.

Here are the major gameplay features currently implemented:
  • 6 Dinosaurs: Styracosaurus, Carnotaurus, Gallimimus, Parahelicoprion, Ankylosaurus, Stygimoloch
  • Free-roam island with lakes/rivers/caves/forests and a surrounding beach/ocean
  • Persistent Day/Night cycle with random rain+fog
  • PVP weapon combat including roping prisoners
  • Resource collection
  • Crafting system includes campsite items(teepee/firpit etc). Craftable weapons include a bow and arrow, spear, and bolas
  • Swimming + Fish + Spearfishing
  • Tamable/Mountable dinosaurs
  • Random dinosaur stampedes
  • Tribe establishment with isolated chat
  • Offline play (same game, solo)
  • Dedicated servers hosted by players
  • Persistent character data per server

Updates
  • There will be a total of 15 dinosaurs implemented by release, as well as many more craftable items/weapons
  • Dinosaur AI is the only major feature very early in development, intended to be improved per dinosaur all the way until release.
  • The incentive to playing our Early Access game is to be able to voice a first-hand opinion for what your ideal dinosaur survival game would be, while it is still in development. So features are being presented and discussed with the playerbase on the forums.

About This Game

The Stomping Land is a multiplayer survival game about living in a world with dinosaurs. Form tribes, setup camp, and hunt down Earth's historic beasts with the goal of becoming the dominant tribe on the island.

You are a hunter and a scavenger. You survive in a world with dinosaurs, and if any one of them catch you, they will end you in an instant. In fact, you can't kill most dinosaurs with ease, and the ones that you can don't provide plentiful amounts of food. It's the large ones that matter. The ones with bone crushing jaws and skull smashing tails that roam the island and fight each other, who provide the food you want. It's up to you to find methods of surviving for as long as possible, so you can tame these creatures to protect you from the relentless threatening engagements.

The Stomping Land game is currently under development, and we recommend to read the developer commentary above to get a solid insight on what to expect with your purchase.

Stay away from this game, there is no pros and cons to it as this game is simply a scam.

It was even pulled from steam for awhile, before the devs made one update using files that where already in the game the modders unlocked ages ago. Then ran away again. This 'game' is the definition of money grabbing on early accsess.

This game should not be on steam and refunds should be given to people who purchased it, $25 is no small amount for most people.

**Caution - Do not buy this game**
***Steam had it removed once and it should be removed again***
****Steam will not refund your purchase, so don’t waste your money like so many of us have****

The Stomping lands was pulled of steam due to no update or communication with the developers for several months. The developers then released a patch to get it back on steam, the patch had already been enabled months earlier by modders. So what does that mean? It means all the developers did was enable code that they had turned off previously. No new code was developed.

This game should be pulled off steam again untill such a time the developers can provide beneficial updates back to the community and stop gaining money from what most customers believe is fraud or at worst unsavoury business practises.

You have all been warned.

STEAM needs to REMOVE this game ASAP, the developer is back to his old tricks that got the game removed from steam the first time. No communication and when he does it's empty lies that he does not follow through with, promises updates that never happen and no word as to why. This game appears to me to be a SCAM. PLEASE REMOVE FROM STEAM!!!

No update for months, almost completely frogot I had this game in my library due to no frequent updates, not much to do in the game or craft. From all the positive posts saying, "Guys it's not done yet, it has some bugs, glitches, or more content upcoming," well that's not the main thing we're complaining about, what we're saying is this game is, "abandoned" and will no longer be getting any more attention from the developers, new content or fixes. Game is to expensive for an early access game, and a scam to get your money with false promisses. Don't get this game untill it's finished or gets more frequent updates. That's if they bother to come back to it.

If you like games that have been completely ruined by the community, the developers, and steam, this game is for you! The game is now entirely focused on the building of traps. But, if you liked what your saw in the reaveal trailers and all everything leading up to release, don't get it, because this game is nothing even remotely close to what they showed to con us into buying this piece of ♥♥♥♥.

Very early access.. The developer goes months without updates. Skip this until full release, if it ever makes it that far.

Early Access Review
This is the worst game I have ever bought. I used to purchase alpha staged games on steam and fund kickstarters because I loved each and every game. This game has single handedly ruined that for me. I will never fund another early stage game because of what the Developer Jig has done. He promised a wonderful game in youtube videos with the pictures, and when it was released on steam he completely gutted it and removed ALL features from the game. You got a stripped down version of the game you were shown here on the store page for $25.00. This is single handedly the biggest scam I have ever seen. I am so very disappointed in valve for putting it back on the steam market place after the whole incident.

The largest scam I've ever had the priveledge of falling for. I've spent my money on this and regret it. I've had the game since May, and there has been 1 update during the time. The developers appear to have no intention of ever taking this game to a complete state and are content of collecting in what purchases they can.

Don't buy this game you will be sorry. I bought it when the developer actually talked to his community and updates came often. That was then...

This is now...
Developer leaves community without a word for months...MONTHS. Game was good. But recent updates have made it much worse. So as times goes on updates are rare and when we do get one, they are taking the game in a bad direction imo.
