What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“DINODRIFTERS has been a labour of love for me and is feature-complete. It is a massive undertaking requiring a great amount of research and a balance between prehistoric accuracy and gameplay satisfaction. However, this is my first game and I am not certain that certain things will be truly balanced or perfect. Feedback from Early Access players will aid in establishing a bridge between what I want to do and what I should do in regards to making this game fun and engaging.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Only around one month, coming out of Early Access in December 2019.

This period is to allow for player feedback and potential bug-fixes.”

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

“The Early Access version is slightly more wild than what will come, in terms of bugs and balancing issues. Story Mode is complete, with cutscenes, missions and gadgets, but Free Mode could use some player guidance to better AI and gameplay balance. During Early Access, player feedback will be addressed so DINODRIFTERS can be rapidly brought to a solid base game. After a solid base is established that players are happy with, additional maps and dinosaurs can be added in the months to come post-release.

Together, we can create the most comprehensive prehistory game ever made!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“DINODRIFTERS is 100% complete, but not quite balanced and in need of player feedback.

See the 'About This' section for more details on features that are in the game right now.”

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

“The price of DINODRIFTERS will be discounted for at least part of the duration of its Early Access period. At the end of this period, when the game is released proper, the price will be normalised.”

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

“I highly encourage any and all players to contact me either in the forums or the comments to let me know if you encounter anything strange or unforeseen. I work on DINODRIFTERS most days so if I am alerted to a bug or glitch, I’ll do my best to provide a fix as soon as possible.”
