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 #013 : We’re throwing off the gloves – to hold hands.


Summer is upon us (well, on our side of the Earth) and we’re celebrating by avoiding the outdoors and working feverishly on Parkasaurus. We’re extending the way players can explore their park with new cameras, doing extra work on Dino breakouts, and throwing some in depth information on that YouTube in the form of an Exhibit Pane Reveal video.

Update 013 Topics

  • Exhibit Pane Video
  • Dino Cam in the house
  • Betty breaking out

Exhibit Pane Video
In Parkasaurus the Exhibit Pane is a really valuable source of information about each exhibit, and how well the exhibit is tailored to your dino best friend. Therefor, as we get closer to Early Access we’ll be posting some videos to provide a little more information on the game systems.
https://youtu.be/SMq5adHsBUw

Dino Cam in the house
We love watching our dino best friends walk around their exhibit – so realized there had to be an even BETTER way than the normal park view. So, we made a Dino Cam! Now selecting a dino brings up their info pane – and you can click a little camera icon in the top left to enable Dino Cam mode, check it out.


Betty breaking out
Breakouts and dino attacks – errr – dino horse-play, is an important aspect of Parkasaurus – so we’re doing a few more iterations on how this mechanic works in game. Check out Betty as she tries to break out – she doesn’t know better, she’s just goofing around. (and causing havoc).


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

Parkasaurus Update #012 : Wait, are we there yet?



Glorious is the day Parkasaurus friends, Alpha 3 was reached! This means we’ll be receiving a ton of gameplay feedback, figuring out what is fun, what isn’t that fun, and adjusting accordingly. The game at this point is Early Access feature complete – all the parts are there, we just need to get them to run smoothly.

Update 012 Topics
  • Employee waypoint updates
  • Dinos just want to have fun
  • Exhibit Lists
  • Bonus: Park grand opening

Employee waypoint updates
In Parkasaurus your employees become vital once your park starts to grow, it is a great lesson in delegating out the work. We’ve been improving employee pathing; now you have 3 choices:
  • random - the employee wanders the park looking for tasks to do
  • waypoints – you assign the route for an employee to follow
  • proximity – you assign the employee to stay tethered to a certain area


Dinos just want to have fun
Toys! Toys! Toys! We’ve been finalizing the toy system and changing how this affects your Dino best friends. For example, some toys might improve the health of a Dino (eg. A vaccine is in the ice cube!) or sometimes toys are just for fun, and therefor increase the enrichment of your Dino.


Exhibit Lists
There are many interesting systems in Parkasaurus that sometimes can be missed by players. Last week we added some much-needed info panes that we never realized were very important to have, for example, a list of Dino exhibits. It may seem intuitive to put this in but it's amazing what you just don't see when you’re in the thick of developing a best friend Dino tycoon game 😊


Bonus: Park grand opening
One of the older complaints we got from folks playing the game way back was they felt overwhelmed when people entered the park and they weren't ready...so now you can close & open the park. Guests who are in the park leave, guests en route turn around, and we stop spawning any new guests. This was a fitting point to chat about because it also feels like a celebration for Alpha3.

About This Game



Parkasaurus challenges the player to plan, design and construct fabulous exhibits that maximize both the happiness of their Dinos, and the park guests’ satisfaction and willingness to spend money! Starting with only a dream and an abandoned park the player will discover ground breaking technologies, new attractions and a special bond with each of their Dinos, all captured in stunningly beautiful modernized 3D flat design graphics.

In Parkasaurus if you care for your dinos, discover new technologies then your park will thrive.



    Exhibit Design:

    Design success - each dinosaur requires a unique biosphere, which means the shape of exhibit, materials used, ecology, plants, elevation and humidity all play a key role in whether the Dinos, and the park, thrive...or become extinct.

    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 the flow and arrangement of your park to maximize the happiness of guests and Dinos alike.

    Employee Management:

    Level up rookie hires, or bring on established veterans, to help run your park smoothly and efficiently.

    Time Travel for Dinos Eggs:

    Go back in time to retrieve the hottest (and oldest) Dino Eggs.

    Chaotic Dino Escapes:

    Switch into first person view to handle any Dino rampages quickly and with care, before disaster strikes.

    Year Round Challenges:

    Manage unexpected weather catastrophes, as well as the expected diverse demands each season brings.


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.



There are only two of us working on this project, and despite being experience game makers, we desperately are going to need YOU be a Parkasaurus Warrior! Here is how:

  • Be brave enough to support our Early Access release this spring
  • Add us to your wishlist as soon as you can
  • Tweet about us, or to us, or just talk about us
  • Tell your friends and family to support us
  • Visit your local MUSEUM, or ZOO, or ANIMAL SHELTER

And If You Read This Far, Thanks, We Love You!
