 The Ultimate Tycoon Building Experience

The gaming world might be dominated by some industrial giants, but just as in the Jurassic, when the slow-moving sauropods would have been occasionally startled by much smaller, more agile dinosaurs, the gaming leviathans can find themselves up against faster, sleeker and speedier developers.  Everything Dinosaur’s team members have been informed that an independent studio (Underdog Interactive), are working on a new simulator that intends to deliver the ultimate in tycoon building experiences.  The working title for this new prehistoric animal simulator is “Jurassic Planet”, but a new name is due to be announced shortly.

The project is being developed on the Unreal Engine 4 platform which boasts stunning graphics and powerful visuals.  Underdog Interactive, have big plans and they intend to make a mark on the game development environment about as big as the Chicxulub impact crater.  Currently the team is focusing on bringing the best possible graphics together with the most up to date fossil discoveries so that a spectacular and accurately depicted menagerie of prehistoric animals can feature.

A Fast-moving Project

Commenting on this fast-moving project, insider Max Wood stated:

“With the versatility of Unreal Engine 4, the team are looking to wow players with realistic graphics and to include game enhancing features such as Co-op missions and even the “dinosaur capture feature” inspired directly by the scene from the second Jurassic Park move – Lost World.”

Other projects such as Prehistoric Kingdom have been largely fan based projects, the difference here is that Jurassic Planet is a game development project and the talented team are working around the clock on making this game a reality.

Everything Dinosaur’s School Website

It has been just over a week since the new teaching website managed by Everything Dinosaur was launched and already there has been a high demand for the free downloads of teaching resources.  Teachers and home educators from as far away as the western United States and Australia have taken advantage of the helpful teaching articles and downloads.

A New Website

The web site was set up to help educationalists find reliable dinosaur and fossil themed teaching resources, to assist in schemes of work involving teaching about the Earth sciences such as geology and palaeontology.

A spokesperson for the Cheshire based company stated:

“We are delighted with the uptake, our dedicated team are being kept very busy dealing with teaching enquiries, advising on lesson plans and sending out resources to support extension activities.”

With the new curriculum in England being introduced this month, with an emphasis on “working scientifically”, it seems that this new website dedicated to dinosaur themed teaching resources has been very well received.
