Free Weekend and New Comic DLC!

In related news, this weekend also brings us issue #1 of the brand new Dino D-Day digital comic. Let's face it, if you are already a big enough nerd to enjoy a video game about dinosaurs in WW2, you are a big enough nerd to read the origin story in a comic. Embrace your hopeless inner nerd, like we have, and pick up this comic at Dino D-Day's Steam store page.

Because we’re also comic nerds, we’re super excited to have gotten renowned comic creator Tommy Lee Edwards (Google him) to break away from his work with Marvel, DC, etc to design our book and create the layouts. We used the game as a virtual prop house to create the final look over his layouts, which means that the end result is nerd squared! With the comic you also get TLE’s original full-color layouts with a toggle switch that lets you click back and forth on each page.

Operation Genesis tells the story of how Captain Jack Hardgrave and Nigel Blythe-Crossley first met: on a combined allied mission to a mysterious new Nazi installation on the French coast. What is lurking within the damp concrete walls of this base? Chances are, it is something with enormous teeth and rancid breath! Nigel and Hardgrave have to learn to work together and use all their dino-fighting know-how to deal with this new menace. All the thrills, chills, and tongue-in-cheek humor of Dino D-Day the game, but now with story! Spoiler: there’s a new character on the last page. Beautiful? Yes. Deadly? Of course! Help us make issue #2, where she helps busts our heroes out of Nazi captivity, by picking up the comic along with the game!!

But wait, you say, why do Hardgrave and Nigel look different in the comic than they do in the game? The characters depicted in the comic book are derived from new designs created for some planned narrative projects and we wanted to show off the new looks in the comic!

The comic DLC is available on Dino D-Day's product page, and will go straight to your game client. Read it right from your main game menu, or as a high resolution DRM FREE pdf! Excelsior!

About This Game

The year is 1942. Adolf Hitler has succeeded in resurrecting dinosaurs. The reptilian horde has trampled Europe and the Mediterranean. Can nothing stop the Nazi’s dinosaur army?
Dino D-Day is a frantic, action-packed multiplayer game that transports you to a World War II that should have been. You and your friends can battle online choosing to serve the cause of the Allied nations or the Nazis. The Allied side includes seven playable characters including Trigger, a Protoceratops rescued from the Nazis. Each Allied class has unique weapons and abilities to use in combat. Gun down a Dilophosaur with your trusty M1 Garand, blast a kamikaze pterosaur out of the sky with your Thompson sub-machine gun, or toss out a dead jackrabbit to lure a raptor into a trap.
As an Axis player you will have your choice of three human classes and four dinosaur classes. Ambush your enemy with speed and stealth as the Raptor, mercilessly pound the enemy with a heavy 20mm gun as the Desmatosuchus, rampage through enemy groups as the Dilophosaur or pick up a body and throw it at an enemy for a double kill! Or if you prefer a rifle in your hand, the German soldier classes are the perfect complement to their dinosaur comrades.
You’ve played World War II games before…but have you played a World War II game with dinosaurs?

The tide of World War II is about to change. Dinosaurs have been resurrected by the Axis to be the formidable foe against the Allies. I bought this game years ago and went in thinking it was a single player first person shooter. You vs dinosaurs! Maybe I should read descriptions. Dino D-Day is a multiplayer online first person shooter set in the 1940s. There are 9 maps to choose from and a server list to find a game. You can even play offline or alone with bots and its every bit as fun.

The teams each have their own characters. I hesitate to say classes, because everyone feels unique. Sure both teams have a medic, but they're both different. Each of the 16 characters are different and relegated to humans and dinosaurs. The Axis has six dinosaur characters and three humans. The Allies have six humans and one dinosaur named Trigger. The dinosaurs have longer stamina to run around the map, so they don't run head on into gunfire from humans. Humans are weaker, but to balance it, they're smaller. The bigger the dinosaur, the more health it has. Changing between characters is easy like Team Fortress 2.

The dinosaurs all play differently and it doesn't take that long to understand how they work. Maybe 10 minutes to be effective and efficient killers. Trigger, on the Allies side plays in 3rd per-dinosaur. He can jump and use a machine gun that needs to cool down. On the Axis, there's a Stygimoloch that plays similar with a cool down machine gun. Desmatosuchus is a slow tank that takes a lot of damage, fires very slowly and murders quickly. To balance him, he's a slow mover and so wide he can't fit through normal doorways. There is a raptor that is fast, plays in first per-dinosaur, melee kills quick, can leap, a high jump and pounce with the alt fire button in the air. A bigger dilophosaurus in 3rd person that can quickly run and head ram things to death. Not just that, it can pick up one of the goats found in most maps and heave them at the Allies. Compsognathus is the smallest third person dinosaur. Because of this, you're under the sight line of most humans. Your lack of health is gained in stealth. Plus, you can simply explode at will. Its beautiful. The final dinosaur is the Microraptor that plays in first dinosaur. It has wings and while it can't fly it can flap to keep it in the air to spit acid that blinds enemies. Not just that, but it can cling to walls and ceilings. Cling, but not wall run or anything like that.

It is the gameplay diversity and the uniqueness of all characters that really set this game apart. The humans all have their own weapons that not only feel good to use, but effective too. Most of the weapons except the shotguns have iron sights with their alt fire button.

On the Allies, you have Hardgrave, with a gun, a pistol, a grenade and his bare fists to box with dinosaurs. Spencer has his primary weapon, a pistol, his fists and a sticky bomb. Lob it out, stick it to an enemy and watch as they bring it home. Piat is the heaviest human, he uses a shotgun, a rocket launcher that only holds one rocket at a time to balance it out and smoke grenade. No fists, no melee, just big damage. Vike is a sniper, with a pistol and a rabbit. Why a rabbit? Its bait. If a carnivorous (or omnivorous) dinosaur finds the rabbit, they eat, disabling them, which gives Vike time to user her sniper rifle for one dead dino. Camille is the medic of the Allies, but in Dino D-Day the medic packs are different. She throws out the pack and when her team is near the pack, they regenerate health. So she can help her team with a machine gun, luger and fists if need be. Frank is the last member of the allies, he has a machine gun, a one shot shotgun, grenades, his fists and his devilishly good looks. Over on the Axis side, you have Streicher with a gun, machine gun, stick grenade and knife. Allies use fists, sissies like the Axis use knives. Hissman is the sniper who has a luger, stick grenade and knife. He can also summon a pterodactyl to dive bomb and explode. Wolfgang is the medic of the Axis with a machine gun, luger, knife and medi-pack.

Dino D-Day has undergone a major graphics change and the artwork looks fantastic. It has an art style true to the 1940s propaganda. Ole time radio broadcasts on the main menu go a long way for making an immersive experience. The game has come a long way in three years. There are more maps and better graphics, even after all this time. The game also has taken out references to Hitler and swastikas. There are now black crosses in white circles on red banners. So it still feels like Nazi swastikas, but its not. That's still okay. It doesn't hinder the fun.

In case you haven't heard, the game uses the Source engine. So there are a lot of comparisons between this game and other Source games like Counter-Strike: Global Offense and Day of Defeat. It plays as easily as those games with a lot of freedom to tailor the controls to what you want them to be. A lot of the maps feel like they could be in CS:GO. They feel like deserts and small villas, all while having elements of dinosaurs in them.

The Axis is the red team with blue health and the Allies are the blue team with red health. It is a bit confusing in the game. I say red and blue, because of the color of their logos. There are no actual team colors. Characters have their own non team specific attire, which can make it confusing on the battle field. How does a new player know what team that player is on? If they're on your team, they have a logo floating above their head. Anything else should get shot and killed. The problem is seeing things. A lot of times the players blend in. The night maps make it difficult to see other players, which is good for a stealth advantage. Shorter dinosaurs can hide in grass.

Each of the maps has three or four modes: Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Control Points and a few maps have objectives. The objectives in those maps are pretty simple. The allies will pick up a bomb in their spawn room and set the bomb at a specific target. The bombs take a few moments to arm, then throw and then they explode after ten seconds or so. It doesn't feel like a game changer. Speaking of the spawn room, you can find unlimited health and ammo. Outside of the base, its tougher to find health. Enemies drop ammunition. Even if you're a raptor that doesn't need ammunition, by picking it up, you're denying the enemy from having it.

Some maps are designed for T-rex deathmatches. These maps have the deadly giant under Axis control. A player from the Axis is randomly selected to be the tyranical beast. As T-rex you move slowly through the streets in a third person view, using a dual machine gun that needs to cool down. The T-rex can also belt out a roar that knocks the human Allies off their feet. Not your allies, I mean 'the Allies.' Once they're off their feet, you can slowly march over to them and eat them for extra health. You'll be lucky to eat someone, it doesn't happen that often. Playing as the T-rex is a lot of fun and even playing against it is a lot of fun. Sure the rex is only on the Axis team, but its balanced to the point where its so giant that all you need to do is run to a smaller area where it can't get you. Then its forced to waste time walking around buildings through giant openings to find where the action went to.

In all, it might sound like a gimmick, but there is fun here. Not just the premise. The game feels balanced. There are a few ways to play to have your own fun. There are now dinosaurs on both teams so people don't flood to the Axis side saying, 'dinoz yay the new kittenz of the game world!' The developers have updated and upgraded the graphics. The Source engine is a great engine to play a first person shooter. The community is still playing the game. Give it a try again if its not your first time. It has been on sale for $1.

If there were dinosaurs, Dino D-Day would be one of many online shooter on the Second World War. While there are dinosaurs and developers recognizing the genius of their idea and intelligent humor with which it is carried out, however, the game is one of many online shooter. The different classes can be interesting for a while 'and the maps are moderately interesting, at least until you get bored, because they are quite small and in a couple of games they already know all the secrets. Twenty euro these days are not a no brainer, but it bodes well that you get the single player and already there is talk of new maps and additional dinosaurs. Of course, when these things will come it remains a mystery. Until then we are in front a game that can entertain but which will soon be shelved, at least until the new additions promises. In short, what the shooter is a market ultra inflated and there is a lot better for a lot less ...

A fun game that uses the Source engine and doesn't take itself seriously. An absolute steal for $0.99, even more so if you're a fan of Day of Defeat and Team Fortress.

As a child, I loved dinosours, i was fasinated by the reptillian giants of the prehistoric age. Upon growing old in age, I began to lean into FPS and WW2 games, a genre that is popular in our time. A genius who sought to give the a world a meaning, and to explain religion, cure cancer and stop the the world from exploding. This man who we honor in his great name wrote the almighty game codes where our favorite culture pastimes are combined. How could one think of the idea of Nazi's cultivating dinosaurs and taking over the world? Well thankfully you are given the oppritunity to fight for the greatest contry in the world and kill the Nazi empire.
I love this game and I love playing it with my friends! 10/10 I recommend getting this game!

Be a Nazi and punch a T-Rex to death
Use goats as weapons
Be a tiny suicidal dinosaur
Be a T-Rex with machine guns

Basicly a good mix of TF2 and Jurrasic Park without hats of course!

10/10 A MUST HAVE GAME!

A very fun ww2 shooter based on the source engine. Dinos are a cool addition. Runs well on anything and has enough people playing 24/7 to find a server with decent ping.

Dino D-Day is a treat.The story drags you in from the very start. The game had me on the edge of my seat the entire way through! Every time I think of turning the game off something amazing happens and sucks me back in. The only thing I really think this missed out on was deep and envoloping romance, this is just a personal perference that I want all my dinosaur games to have so I was a little disappointed. However the game makes up for lack of romance with it's amazing cast of characters that I have never been more attached to in my life! (they actually make me feel like I have friends) All in all Dino D-Day really captures the Friendship and captivating story most games miss out on. Just wish it had romance :(

8/8 gr8 game. Just kidding its terrible but ♥♥♥♥ it was 99 cents
