A deep and emotionally impacting story and game about a boy and his pet Tyrannosaurus Rex, and their adventure to escape greedy scientists and reach paradise.

Navigate both the boy and the dinosaur to the end of the game and use their abilities to help eachother and overcome many obstacles - like pits, spikes, and savage science-spliced beasts.

Tissues are recommended.

Wow! Game of the Day, AND front page! I am excite!

UPDATE: I know the ending can be... ... disappointing. I'm sorry. BUT FEAR NOT! Granted, I should have left off a better clue, but here it is up front:

It's not the end. There's a sequel coming, which has a happier ending (Is it Paradise? We'll see...) - and, of course, MUCH less glitches. Much improvement all around - better graphics, coding, gameplay, and a little easier gameplay.

Expect it... mmmm... Late Summer? By early 2012, at the latest. :)

Very good!

Story was fantastic. Loved the music also. It can be a bit buggy now and then like if the bone goes into the floor dino just spazzes out.

All in all a good game.

Oh God I Hate You

Uuugggghhh....
Okay, seriously, this was a great game, I really enjoyed it.
There are some bugs, yes, but they aren't that significant. A smart player will spot them and be able to work around them easily. I could ride the dino's head easily once I got the jist of how it worked. Everything else is typical puzzle platformer fair... if you've got patience and skill then it's no problem. It's a little frustrating at times when you have to start over at the beginning constantly, but that usually only happened a lot near the end of the game and I kind of expect a game to give me trouble once you're that far in.

So, yeah, really nice game. I just hate the ending. I want you to die for that. I put in a lot of effort to win happiness for this little boy and his dinosaur and then you slapped me in the face at the last minute. That's not cool dude. You should be ashamed.

Sequel or I will FIND YOU...

Controls makes me cry not the story

Ok the bad outweights the good in this game. A lot of things annoy me out of it. First the graphics are really not the same all around, the ground looks like its been taken out of a vintage nintendo game, caracters looks cartoon drawn and the rest is just a mess in between. Next time choose one style and go with it.

The thing has a lot of glitches obviously, sometimes the caracter levitates up a ledge like magic, or just gets killed by a dog's aura or just falls off of that dino thats poorly maneuverable and into a pit of spikes. If a least the beast could run at the same speed at you or if you could just hang on to it, we'd all be happier.

Third the story isn't as fabulous as it seems, too much emphasis on the «story of friendship» and stuff. Don't get me wrong, the theme is good but instead of being told these guys are friends, I want to feel it by seeing them interact, I want to like the dog just as much as the boy is supposed to. But instead I just feel frustrated I can't hang on to it.

Lastly I think you have potential, the game doesn't but you had a great idea and just need to learn to improve the final result on your later ones. Liked the music btw.

Great potential, but the difficulty breaks it

First off let me start by saying this game has a lot of potential. It is usually exactly the sort of game I like. Nice art, good music, captivating story line.

This kind of game is usually meant to evoke emotions. However it made me want to invoke Eldritch abominations from beyond the veil to unleash upon the flesh of the innocent. Something along there must've gone wrong.

The game's difficulty curve shoots up in the later levels and for all the wrong reasons. The ledges lag and don't always register the character. Enemies hit outside the hitbox or don't detect the dino. You don't stay on the dino, plummeting to your doom into the lava out of nowhere.

Now there's nothing wrong with a little difficulty, I like my games being a challenge but there's a difference between difficulty because of thought out level design or challenging puzzles and glitching through things and missing pixel perfect jumps.

Something that could've improved the game greatly would be more checkpoints. Really. Checkpoints. A lot of the game's faults could be forgiven if you didn't have to start all the way back at the beginning most of the time. Many levels had a challenging enough part to get through from the get go. Whenever I slipped up in later parts I felt like screaming, knowing I'd have to go through all of it again.

I'll take the last level as an example (being still the freshest in my mind), the start is tricky, you glitch through platforms have to avoid the dogs narrowly because jump detection isn't great, hit the switch and go back the same way. Making it through there, there's a series of very precise jumps for another switch. Time to call your dino. Then you have up to get up the spiky slope, no easy task with how you glitch off the dino. It took me far, far to many tries to finally do.

When I reached the top of that and saw the lava, I felt something break a little when there was no checkpoint. I might've incited for apocalypse when at that point my dino decided to run off the edge.

And I'd have to start from the beginning again.
That's just an example. By no means am I bad at games, or even impatient, I've sat through tough games with sheer persistence, but this was starting to test me.

When I finally finished it, I lost all the empathy or bond, or emotion I felt for the dino before. Which is a pity, since the game had lots of potential.

If only the gameplay was less troublesome this could've been great, a 10 even. The sound, graphics and concept are wonderful.

If you do make any changes, I'd strongly suggest extra checkpoints.
