Dinosaur Run is Greenlit!
Dinosaur Run is now available to play at the National Videogame Arcade!
Release date: TBA

Take control of a plush monkey in a plastic world of animated toys in this runner game inspired by classic 90's adventure games, such as Crash Bandicoot, and the imagination of a child.

Run away from the friendly dinosaur as you collect bananas and avoid various obstacles! Traverse multiple levels, including an endless mode, to beat your high score and unlock silly hats and upgrades.

  • Exciting runner-style gameplay with a twist.
  • Variety of obstacles and powerups.
  • Front facing camera and chase mechanics put a unique spin on the genre.
  • Unique art style that depicts a world of plastic toys.
  • 8 fun levels, such as the Dinosaur Valley, the Crystal Caves, Baking Soda Volcano & more!
  • Endless Mode for the ultimate challenge.
  • Variety of fun hats to unlock for Monkey and Dinosaur.
  • Enjoy various difficulty levels for the whole family.
  • Fully voiced, great for aiding young children who cannot read.
  • Powered by Unreal Engine 4

Q: Will this be an Early Access game?
A: No. The game is still a work in progress, and will be released when it is finished/ready - but I will still listen to the community if there are suggestions for change or if there are any issues encountered.

Q: Will there be microtransactions?
A: No, all unlocks are acquired through the in-game level system.

Q: Will there be support for multiple languages?
A: It’s definitely something I am interested in - especially if requested enough. I am a single developer, however, and I only know English - but I’d be interested to work with multi-lingual players from the community to make it happen.

Q: Will there be Steam achievements/trading cards?
A: Yes!

Q: How many levels are in the game?
A: There are eight different levels with a start and end. The obstacles and pickups are procedural so it’s different every time. There is also an endless mode to see how long you can run for.

Q: Will there be multiplayer?
A: Not currently planned.

Q: Are there leaderboards?
A: Yes and no. There are high scores but currently offline only - but I’m looking into Steam integration

Q: Is this game suitable for children?
A: Yes! This was created specifically with young children in mind, and the games QA includes thorough testing by a four year-old! While aimed at children, there are adjustable difficulty levels to make it fun for those of all ages!

Fantastic looking game. I would like to speak to you regarding a proposal.

Looks like a fun game. Nice and happy vibe. I'd be happy to let my daughter play this as this would aid hand / eye coordination. First step for her to be a nerd like her daddy :-)

@Beheaded - Other languages are something I wish to look in to, but being a single developer, I'm unsure of how feasible it is. I only know English, my native language. (huge respect for those who are multi-lingual)

Game wise it seems good enough, definitely shouldn't be on Steam or atleast the main platform shouldn't be Steam since it appears to be targeted towards a young audience (Just my opinion). Quick Note: This is basicly a one directional Temple Run which already goes for free on mobile platforms, so you might consider making this game a free download mobile game with in-game purchases or a pay once unlock all, but the latter would probably scare away many possible users.

Looks like a funny casual game for free time :D
Can be good when you making videos on youtube xD

I will give a "Yes" to the game.
