If I ever got the chance to go back in time and have the opportunity to come face-to-face with a dinosaur – I’d probably want to shoot it in the face… with a futuristic weapon of some kind! After which I would merrily zoom away on my jetpack to search for some more prehistoric lizards to re-extinct.
Well, if you’ve ever had that dream, you will be delighted to know that someone out there has brought it to life. Orion: Dino Beatdown, which I only stumbled across today on RPS, is an upcoming, nicely priced, indie title ($9.99 ;) ) which will hit the digital shelves on April 20th. It has been described as an open world co-operative science fiction dinosaur hunting game – quite a mouthful – but at that price I would find it hard to pass up such a unique experience.
I look forward to kicking some scaly ass, and maybe trolling a few teammates along the way.
