What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Parkasaurus is the game we always wanted to make, and while we love the current direction, having a Parkasaurus community to help us out would be even better. The two of us have so many ideas still to implement and would love the support of fellow Parkasaurus Warriors to help us decide what to work on next.

We desperately are going to need YOU to be a Parkasaurus Warrior! Here's how:

  • Be brave enough to support our Early Access release this spring

  • Add us to your wishlist - this helps so much

  • Tweet about us, or to us, or just talk about us

  • Tell your friends and family to be Parkasaurus Warriors or follow us on any social media

  • Visit your local MUSEUM, or ZOO, or ANIMAL SHELTER

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our best calculation is that we will be in Early Access for about 6-8 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Parkasaurus will be the ultimate dino park simulator. Broadly speaking there will be:

    Exhibit Design:

    Each dinosaur requires a unique biosphere - the shape of exhibit, materials used, ecology, plants, elevation and humidity all make a difference

    Park Creation and Management:

    Wisely spend resources to build the ultimate Dino Park and turn a profit to ensure future stability

    Guest Monetization:

    By reading reviews and observing your guests, fine tune your parks flow and arrangement to maximize happiness

    Employee Management:

    Level up rookie hires or bring on established veterans to help run your park smoothly, assign tasks and more

    Time Travel for Dinos Eggs:

    Go back in time to retrieve from a huge list the hottest (and oldest) Dino Eggs

    Chaotic Dino Escapes:

    Calmly manage unexpected disasters dino related or not! Includes various first person tactics to capture your Dino

    Year Round Challenges:

    Manage unexpected weather disasters and the expected demands of each season

    Advanced weather system

    Beautiful shaders & graphic optimization

    Achievements

    Cloud Save

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently Parkasaurus has entered the last phase of a pre-alpha version of development. Our first pass features seen below have all been implemented. Of course this means the Early Access version will most likely contain: Bugs, Crashes, Lost Save Files and Frustration! We personally promise you to try our best to avoid all of those things. BUT, we think you'd love the opportunity to be one of the first brave Parkasaurus Warriors. If you want a polished version of the game, please wait for when we exit Early Access. The Early Access version of the game will contain:

  • Be one of the first Parkasaurus Warriors and our eternal love and thanks
  • Opportunity decide the direction of the ultimate Dino zoo management simulation
  • Live the life of a zoo park manager, creating your very own Dino Zoo from scratch
  • Create specialized Exhibits by modifying humidity, terrain heights, plant composition and more
  • Balance a budget, take out loans, make money!
  • Hire employees, choose their tasks
  • Time Travel for Dinos Eggs
  • Chaotic Dino Escapes and first person capturing
  • Save / Load system
  • Basic weather system
  • A lot more

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We are still figuring out what the launch price is going to be, and our target price will hopefully be a fair reflection of what we think the game is worth. With that said, we will 100% respect the dollars spent by our earliest supporters; and the base game price would only increase after Early Access. It upsets us personally as customers when we pay full price for a game as an early supporter only to have it go on sale shortly after.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The two of us that make up WashBear Studio will be having conversations with our community through many different ways; forums, twitter, Instagram, Facebook and our blog, among just a few. Since our game is a complex zoo simulation it will be imperative for us to hear feedback from our players about all the weird economy mishaps they discover. When we're ready to add more features we'll ask the community what they'd want to see, or what aspects of the current game they think we should expand upon.

Parkasaurus Update #009 : Party Hats


Hi there Parkasaurus Warriors! The next update has arrived. The game is tightening up; a few big features (that are hilarious to see in game) and more graphics updates. At Washbear we hope to be as transparent as possible, and want to let you know that we’re trying very hard to get you an Early Access date update. Thanks for understanding! Parkasaurus Update #009 : Party Hats

Alpha Version 3 current milestone…what is closer than close?
A very large update to the Parkasaurus privacy mechanic has been implemented over the last week. Now there are more options for deciding how to design your exhibit. As always the focus is on your dino best friends so a few more dino accessories were made thanks to our Discord vote. Oh, and of course more food refilling options and dino poop!

Update 009 Topics
  • Party Hats
  • What type of manager are you?
  • Privacy is Happy – but for who
  • Somebody has to clean it up…

Party Hats
Are accessories for your dino best friends the most important feature we should be working on? The answer is DEFINITELEY YES. Our Discord channel recently voted on what dino accessories they wanted to see more in Parkasaurus, and recent winners were Unicorn Hat (+2 enrichment), Cone of Shame (+1 health) and Hotdog Hat (+1 bonus to eating). Earn those science points to be sure you too can have a full assortment of accessories.



What type of manager are you?
Your dino best friends are going to be really hungry, and we mean HUNGRY. Keeping your feeders refilled is a demanding task in Parkasaurus. The question is do you refill the feeders yourself by items from you inventory bag, or do you have your veterinarians do the work? Or a combination of both? Choices choices.



Privacy is Happy – but for who
Your privacy heatmap allows fine tuning of your dino exhibits to be a balance between what is best for your dinos, and what keeps your guests paying money! Obviously your dino best friends are paramount – so be sure to use tall grass, wisely shape your exhibits, and mindfully place your guest paths along the fences in such a way as to maintain a decent amount of privacy.



Somebody has to clean it up…
Sadly our dinosaurs lost the ability to poop – but luckily that was fixed! Part of raising your baby dinos into full adulthood is ensuring their exhibits are clean. Be sure to hire a veterinarian and a janitor to help out.



Parkasaurus Warriors!
The two of us are trying our hardest to get the Parkasaurus word out to the world, and we see all of you helping out! Keep it up! Tell your neighbour to Wishlist us, get your boyfriend to follow us on Twitter or get your boss to post about us on reddit or your company forums. Being a Parkasaurus Warrior is such a big help to us. Thanks. xoxo

Parkasaurus Update #008 : Our Parkasaurus Family



Hello our fantastic Parkasaurus Warriors™! I’m happy to share with you our next update. We are getting closer and closer to getting the game available – and it is becoming more important than ever to get the word out. The two of us are going to need all of you. Parkasaurus Update #008 : Our Parkasaurus Family

Alpha Version 3 current milestone…so close
Are you tired of hearing about the Parkasaurus core loop? I know I am! But the truth is we’re still working very hard on that. In addition though, we finished a ton of other tasks such as: added a few new dinos to the Parkasaurus family, doing the first pass on dino AI, and growing dino babies to adulthood.

Update 008 Topics
  • They grow up so fast
  • Do you take your steak rare or…alive?
  • The Size of our family is never too big : Welcome Seismosaurus
  • More upgrade sets! Science-awayyy

They grow up so fast
We had recently created baby dinos – so the next task was to have them grow into adults. This also meant new baby models – they are similar to their parents, but slightly different: maybe they don’t have their full color scheme, or all their features have yet to grown in. The other big challenge was getting our save system to work with dinos that now could be a range of sizes. This was difficult to implement, but worth it, and darn cute.


Do you eat your steak rare or…alive?
Observing and figuring out what your dino best friends are thinking is a fun part of Parkasaurus. Each species has their own dino thoughts and inclinations, even individual dinos have slightly different personalities. Is your Stegosaurus extra shy? Well you might need to develop an exhibit with more privacy.



The Size of our family is never too big : Welcome Seismosaurus
Seismosaurus is the Discord winner of what Sauropod gets included in the game. I think we’re slowly arriving at the list for what dino best friends will be available for Early Access.


More upgrade sets! Science-awayyy
Somehow we’re also finding time to make more building upgrade sets. Most upgrades are unlocked in the Science Technology Tree or the Hearts Technology Tree. Upgraded buildings provide various bonuses – for example each Science Building upgrade provides an additional spot for a research Scientist. Note: The last science building in the gif is getting updated (great feedback from reddit friends)


Parkasaurus Warriors!
The two of us are trying our hardest to get the Parkasaurus word out to the interwebz, and we see all of you helping out! Keep it up! Tell your neighbour to Wishlist us, get your boyfriend to follow us on Twitter or get your boss to post about us on reddit or your company forums. Being a Parkasaurus Warrior is such a big help to us. Thanks. xoxo

Currently Parkasaurus is in an early stage of development although a lot has been done! Out plan is to make Parkasaurus available this spring for those interested in forging the direction of this game. We have so many ideas still to do and would love the support of a Parkasaurus community to help us decide what to work on next.

  • Be brave enough to support our Early Access release this spring
