Survival sandbox game The Stomping Land will soon be hitting Steam Early Access thanks to its recent Greenlight movement, developer Alex Fundora has annoucned.

Powered by Unreal Engine, the multiplayer survival sim sees players roaming a sandbox while hunting smaller dinosaurs with their bow, fishing in lakes and gathering food to outlast each day. It’s been Greenlit on Steam, with an early access trial coming on May 23 for Kickstarter backers, while non-backers can buy in from May 30 at $24.99.

The initial dinosaurs waiting to kill you or serve as your food will be the Styracosaurus, Carnotaurus, Gallimimus, Puertasaurus, Helicoprion, Ankylosaurus and Stygimoloch, with more species set to roll out over time. The Stomping Ground will launch with one environment called Capa Island, which is smaller than the game’s previously-shown Wayneth Island setting.

Players be wary though, there is no magical inventory system in this one so don't expect to place that freshly cut wood into a void of nothing, you'll have to use your arms. Items that you'll be able to craft include pole vaults, torches, traps and more, with caves littered around the map for players to take shelter in.

For more on the title, check it out in action below or through the official website which includes a run down of the first island players will be able to explore. Jurassic Park meets DayZ is truly happening.

Turok 64 was definately one of a kind, I've been hanging out for a awesome dinosaur game.

Occulus Rift
Unreal 4 Engine
FPS/Survival Horror

I think those three things would make a dinosaur game great.

And really great AI too is needed graphics and immersion is all good but you need to capture that predator/prey characteristics that is what would set it apart and make for a great game

I've been following it for agggeeessss (I backed it the second it hit kickstarter, so obviously I'll never review it) and it looks like the AI is going to be great. You can lure dinos with other dinos, distract them, trap them, all kinds of s***. I'm so freaking amped for this game. All I've ever wanted was a game like DayZ with dinosaurs.

Well, that and a first person game where you're a dinosaur, and you roam around the world being a dinosaur trying to do dinosaur stuff.

Word of TRex because no one would play a Diplodocus.

Yeah that's the whole traversal system in a nutshell. I share Joaby's enthusiasm on this, can not wait to play out Jurassic Park but in a survival aspect of DayZ.

In my imagination you'd start out as a raptor teaming up with other raptors to attack herbivores and you'd slowly unlock other dinosaurs as you play. Eventually you unlock the T-Rex, and once you beat the game as a T-Rex you can be a Human on the island full of dinos.

And then I'd release the herbivore hard-mode DLC pack.

Or I'd make you a compy at the start and you can only be a bigger dinosaur if you pay me $40 for each dino. But that's the ipad game variant.
