Dinosaur World is a new standalone game in the Dinosaur Island universe. Thematically, it’s set a few years after Dino Island, meaning you’ve hopefully learned a thing or two about running a dinosaur amusement park.
As for gameplay, it’s a bit heavier and more puzzle-y than Dino Island. There are a few new mechanics that add to this. One big change is the change to hex tiles for all of the Attractions and Dino Pens. Now, where you place your buildings matters a whole lot more, especially considering the addition of the Jeep Tour phase.
During this phase, players will drive their Jeeple around their park, activating Attractions and Dinos they visit. Of course, guests always like to see the latest and greatest, so tiles generate less excitement each time you visit time, sometimes even causing you to pay excitement! This all comes together to create a thinky game that feels unique, but with a lot of homages to everything players loved about Dino Island.
We can’t forget Dinosaur Island: Rawr ‘n Write either! As part of this same Kickstarter campaign, we have made revealed a roll-and-write inspired by Dino Island. Follow the similar phases of game play, chain combos, and manage your threat level in this new standalone game!
Rachel and Heinze have featured the Dinosaur Island games many times over the years, each time taking us on new adventures! When we started planning for the Kickstarter launch, it was a no brainer to loop them in. We hope you enjoy the comic and the Kickstarter. We’d love to see you in the comments section if you end up backing!
