Dinosaurs Didn't Have Keyboards
« on: June 15, 2010, 11:14:31 PM »

If the screenshot makes you think of Dino Run then you wouldn't be the first to think so. However, the gameplay is completely different and in fact it's the controls themselves that make this game unique.

I don't want to spoil the surprise, so just play the game and see if your keyboard survives!

I think it paused while I was typing the OP. Either that or I took a screengrab and cropped it and typed it all up pretty fast. I just finished it. Can you beat my time?

A quick and sloppy run, learning as I went. I imagine I could do a good deal better on another run-through. Wish there was more to the game though, the novel control scheme adds a great element that would be enjoyable to explore further with more levels. Or am I missing something?

No, I don't think you're missing anything. It was a 48-hour game so it's more a prototype than a game.

Too bad it requires some plugin I've never heard of... and I'm pretty conservative on those, haven't even bowed under the pressure of silverlight yet.

There's a downloadable Windows version. I didn't want to install the plugin either!

Downloaded, spent ~50 seconds with it, deleted it in frustration :)

You've never heard of the Unity game engine?

I'd like those files. What version of Flash are they saved as? You can e-mail them to me at [thisWebsite] @ [myUserName] . com

Yeah, I think that's what will happen to most people. They'll either think "Wow this is unique!" and enjoy the novelty of it for a few minutes or they'll get frustrated and break their keyboard. (c:
