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.

If you would like to visit our community and see how everyone's discussions have helped shape the progress of the game, you can visit our forums at www.thestompingland.com/forum.

Thanks!

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.

How about you just keep the money and "accidently" release the source code, then people who care can make this into what it should be.

This is a SCAM. Don't buy it, save your time and money.

The developer made a lot of promises, the community asked for a lot of things, there's no updates coming out, nothing.

If there is a development process behind this game that is still alive it's well hidden and I have no faith in this ever being done. Yet another greenlight failure.

When I think I actually bought this game day one thinking "This is it! A childhood dream comes true!", I realise how stupid I was.

This game has a lot of potential and a part of me still believes it's gonna happen but that's just silly of me.

"It has had a year of progress and will continue to undergo production with frequent updates until the end of 2015" - Please define the word "frequent". I think we've had 4 minor updates since release back in May and the servers are now all empty. Nothing new actually happened since release.

I really hope the dev actually works on this game to make us all look like fools and impatient ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.
However, the lack of communication is deplorable and shows how uncaring the dev is towards his customers/community (if there is still a community left around this game).

As of today, in my opinion, this game should be classified as a scam, removed from Steam (as it already was not long ago) until something actually happens. If nothing ever happens, Steam should refund everyone.

I want my money back.
Everyone wants their money back.
Dev's should really get their ♥♥♥♥ together before trying to make a game and want to get paid for it by players.
You are not supposed to get money for nothing.

Don't buy this game.

10/10 they like.... "stole" my money.

steer clear, for there are no updates in sight. the devs have gone silent and this is presumably a cash grab anyone could make in a week or two, given that they know how to work udk.

Like many others have said..this game is not worth it...The devs have pretty much stopped supporting the game with updates, it was already removed from steam once and frankly....it should be removed again and permanently.

If you're a normal human being, you should demand a refund for this garbage before you even buy it!

This could have been a good game, but sadly it's not. Currently it's just a buggy meltdown of naked barbarian being head-butted by buggy dinosaurs (which is still fun a bit).

The devs ran away once, leaving their game which has been then removed from steam... And now it's back after an "update" so small and sad that it couldn't even exist. Maybe people still have hope this game will one day be something, but currently it's not.

Early accesses are always risky, so don't risk your money on this one. It has not made any progresses in one year, and it's not far from being universally recognized as a "scam".

So go try theHunter primal I guess

DO.
NOT.
BUY.


The creator of this game time and time again has scammed his supporters, look up various pcgamer articles and other outlets and you'll see that he will just flat out NOT UPDATE ANYTHING FOR MONTHS. I mean, not like it matters because the game's controls and scheme run like something you'd see out of professional hockey. The multiplayer in this game is a flat out joke, most of the time "combat" consists of you circle around the enemy jabbing him with a stick for literal hours until one of you gets tired. This isn't Rust fun, this is "Please exterminate the dinosaurs" as you await a meteor to slam into this game and destroy it, just like it's destroyed AI.

I rate this game a -4/10

I was half tempted to contact steam support for a refund, but because he pulled it from the steam store he prevented everyone from getting a refund.

The videos they show don't show what the actual game is like. It's horrible. Had to manually edit the config file just for it to run, because they had everything at the maximum settings.

If you are looking for a game with diverse crafting system with sneaking impletemented and a beautiful landscape thats held by dangerous dinos that will hold their island with their life. Well this COULD be the game. If of course, they would actually update the damn thing. Honestly, I've lost hope for this game. If you want to seriously look for a game with crafting, and an opposition that can give you a serious thrill (AND THATS ACTUALLY UPDATED ONCE IN A WHILE). Get the Forest, easily a much better purchase then this crap.

This game is dead...

Like my hopes I had, that this time, Early Access would be different. But it wasn't.

Don't buy, return to the "Featured Items" and keep looking.
