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

  • 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 the 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.

It's now been over two months, there have been 0 updates in that time, no ones heard anything from the devs and it turns out that the pr manager Governor Ostrich was a freelancer who's contract expired may 31st.

No updates, no word from devs. Stay clear

I shall tell you a story. A story of a lone hunter of Gallimimus who had a nice little teepee and totem, and one night was roasting meat over a fire
when suddenly a bola went screaming by overhead!

The hunter sprang to his feet and charged at his attackers, but was subdued, and dragged around for a bit, before his captors, unsure of what else to do, released him and invited him to teamspeak. The hunter frolicked through the land with his new tribe, built a new teepee in the village, and hunted many dinosaurs.

they went on many adventures, including killing a Carnotaur with a hatchet... accidentally..., dragging AFK friends with bolas, and becoming so lost and hungry in a cave that they committed group suicide.

One day the hunters stumbled upon a lone villager named "Sinner". In the process of trying to murder Sinner, two of the hunters accidentally stabbed the original hunter in the face and without healing herbs, he was forced to respawn in the village. Twenty minutes later, the hunters dragged Sinner back to the settlement, where a cage was prepared for him.

There the hunters attempted to feed Sinner by offering him entire dinosaurs beneath his cage, but he was cranky and refused to eat. He told the hunters stories, and communicated with saviors who never arrived. Twice Sinner broke free, and twice he was re-captured, nearly drowning by being bola'd underwater both times.

In the end (about 120 minutes later), having grown fond of their pet named Sinner, the hunters dismantled his cage and released him back into the wild from whence he came.

Two thumbs up, would definitely recommend.

ANOTHER UPDATE: A friend told me they're deleting a bunch of negative reviews. Maximum damage control.

UPDATE AGAIN: Permanently banned from the Steam forums on first offense with no prior warning. I'm assuming it's because of my posts where I disagreed with another user about how "well" the game is doing currently. This is probably War Z 2.0 at this point. Don't give them your money.

UPDATE: NOT RECCOMMENDED. If I change it officially I lose my ratings and the review sinks to the bottom, never to be seen again. Consider this a PSA.

It's a hellishly long story, but here's the jist of it.

The devs abandoned the steam forums almost immediately after the game came out with no warning or explanation. There have been no updates since the game came out. One of the mods has been posting weekly newsletters every monday showing off things they're working on but not explaining what happened to the previously promised update schedule. People on the Steam forums got upset because they had been left completely left in the dark, and the angry users on their official forums got dismissed as trolls for being so bold as to ask "So when are we gonna get another update?". After about 5 weeks of this, they finally reveal that their lease on the office had run out. The official forums, being completely barren of any inteligent life, simply clapped their hands and had a fiesta. The Steam forums were still left completely out of the loop, save for a few dedicated users who would tackle the impossibly complicated task of copy-pasting the monday updates since the devs were unable, and assuring everyone that "the game is fine, ur all trolls :) u can't get ur money back because early access :) just wait and be patient :)". The lack of communication from the developers is an absolute insult and has raised red flags with many people. The game is dead on arrival with little chance of a revival. The last bit of hope the game has is for the team to issue a huge apology, start communicating better with their steam fanbase (if they even exist at this point) and a huge sale to lure in some new sucker-uh, "customers" who didn't have to put up with all of this. I'd highly advise staying away from this game for the time being, maybe even forever. I'm still cautiously optimistic, but that's just the kind of guy I am. I'll leave my previous review up since some people found it funny.

I played a non-Steam version of the game for five hours with a group of 5 other friends. Here's what happened to us in our adventures:

We set up a few tents near a rock. We were the "Brotherhood of Rock". We loved that rock. I also tied a friend of mine up and dragged him into the water to catch fish. He was known as "Brother Bait". Our tents got taken down by non-believers.

We roamed the island trying to regroup after being betrayed by the almighty Rock. We eventually settled in a field more inland. Once there a man with no name above his head came and kidnapped us one by one to pull us into the volcano. He would then say "The volcano god thanks you for the sacrifice". We believed he sacrificed his own name to the volcano in order to become it's messenger.

After being terrorized by the follower of the Volcano for many moons, we happened upon a cave with a subterranian lake that roared at us. Upon further inspection the bottom of the lake was occupied by a couple whale sized fish and a lake god who had taken the form of a T-Rex half embedded in a wall. He ate one of our brothers.

Soon after we stumbled into glowing mushrooms which could bring back the dead. We used these to tame dinosaurs and ride them around the field harassing those who didn't believe in Rock. Our chants of "Ooga booga where the white women at?" echoed across the land, striking fear into the hearts of many.

But then our ♥♥♥♥ got griefed and we stopped playing.
