Quick Update
Description
Release date: Late 2017
An arcady adventure set 65 million years before a bearded ape could save your soul, the age of the dinosaur will come to a close, not with a whimper but a bang.

Escape your prison of human flesh and be who you were always meant to be; a pterodactyl escaping from Death's clutches.

Glide, fall and flap your way past the hazards and environments of the dinopocalypse, and try not to go splat!



Dino-Pteror is a solo project that I'm hoping will be a great time for those who like a quirky narrative and arcady action, in my stylised, story driven, finite spin on endless jumping games.

It has been developed in my free-time for just under a year, more seriously since December 2016 as I've put more serious thought to towards pursuing it's completion, I suspect it could be a 6-12 month project that I'd love to have ready for Halloween.

FAQ

Will there be more to it ?
-I should hope so! The game is a WIP, more environments and hazards are easily on the horizon. More complex elements like the narrative are still being fleshed out, and I'd hate to give away all I have planned for it.

Why would I support a "flappy birds" clone ?
-Birds are lame, pterodactyls are infinity cooler.
You'll control the pace you move towards/away-from a diverse range of hazards in randomly generated story driven levels. Aesthetically, contextually, and mechanically the game will be dissimilar.

Will there be Apple/Linux support ?
-TBA. Very likely, the game is in alpha, but the Unity engine has built in support, so I'm hopeful.

What specs will this need ?
-TBA. The game is early in development, currently the assets have not been fully optimised, it should run on a bog-standard laptop, however ultimately I will not know until the game nears completion.

Thank you everyone for your feedback, you beautiful, eloquent, endearing piles of meat, fat and bone.
If you have not rendered your opinion digital, please do, and regardless I hope you all fly away to enjoy a splended day of existance.

All the best!

This dev has the best comment replies of any dev I've encountered on Greenlight. I'm not even being sarcastic. Dude's comments are on point.

Thanks, the trailer took a while to put together, the "level-design" is something that will evolve as progress continues, I hope this gave you a feel for what I'm going for.

I would never allow this project deprive the world of retail my talents, however I will do everything I can to free your repressed desires as a closet-pterodactyl to fly free!

Originality is peeing upside-down into your mouth, iteration is the evolution of all ideas. I think vlad the impaler once said that.

My thanks, and I agree with you, the sky is currently as bland as life. I can only address the former and will endeavour to do so.

...

On that note, there will be more updates, so if you're willing to grant me the privalage of sending you spam, please do hit follow.

I won't be able to respond to comments a lot of the time, so I've popped an FAQ up, please do still keep the comments coming, I have a masochists ego.

All the best!
