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.

This game is like a mixture of DayZ and dinosaurs. These two seem to make a great combo and the game is great. Even though it´s alpha its really good. Happy that the devs started updating it again. Can´t wait for future updates.

Now when I'm saying I recommend it it just means I'm one of the last few people hoping with all their hearts this game will start seeing regular updates. This is a very fun game as it is, a few glitches here and there, some lag and the occasional *shudders* hacker. It's a blast to play solo, with friends, or just meeting up with random people on servers and forming a tribe to hunt down the larger Dinos on the island. Very good graphics and pretty well polished for an early access, if you're looking for some fun with dinosaurs and don't mind a minor issue here and there go ahead and give this baby a whirl. If you don't like glitches, hackers, ETC and will downvote the hell outta of this game for it then don't buy it and just wait until it's finished. Overall, despite the regular updates and few issues I'd give this Dino filled island a solid 7/10

PS. If you're a hacker I hope you rot in a pile of Dino feces.

5 months had past since jig had last updated the game...

But suddenly from out of no where, he came back!
He brought us traps, puertasaurus, updated inventory (no more dragging box simulator 2014) and an expertise update.

Perhaps this can be the dinosaur game we all dreamed of?

This game is great, and though the developers did seemingly vanish for 2~3 months, they're back and giving better updates all the time!

After a long time of radio silence the game is now being updated with new dinosaurs and a new c rafting system alongside many other features. I love this game more than any other survival game on the market (Rust, DayZ etc.) as there are very few hackers and the new update has definitely made it more challenging. Disregard all who say the game is dead, they need to update their reviews/actually work out that it's ben updated.

Also it's moving to UE4 so that should be good.

Stomping Lands is a good game to play for 30 minutes, after that you begin repeating the samething over and over again.
The main goal of the game is to either venture deep within the caves, or tame the biggest and baddest creature.
But before that you have to prepare for the goal, when i was doing so i would repeat'dly be killed by an animal spawning next to me or just be hunted down by "Headracks" as i like to call them. Its annoying and that is pretty much the only mid raged creature that will attack you. The others are masive creatures that you dont stand a chance with. I would like to see some improvements with the fish, since all they do is swim under the map. Not only that i think adding in alot more creatures "NOT PREDATORS" would be great. Also being able to climb a tree or jump from a tree to another tree to escape the danger or track/hunt and creature would be awesome!

Albeit this game had quite the rough start, this title has boundless potential; I have been following this game since earlier in the year, and I too was distraught by the radio silence and recall from steam as much as the next raving madman with an unhappy steam wallet. Now that the devs have since cleared this issue I highly doubt that they'll make the same mistake again, and now we can hopefully enjoy the spear-weilding, dinosaur-riding, tribal-napping adventure we've all yearned for since childhood. Ooga chugga on my friends, ooga chugga on.

One of the funnest and most likely the funniest game I have played. Although it can get very frustrating at times it is all worth it.
