Nazis, dinosaurs collide in Dino D-Day multiplayer shooter

Sometimes, I get the feeling that modern games take themselves too seriously. While browsing Shacknews this morning, I noticed one that definitely doesn’t: Dino D-Day. The game started as a mod for Half-Life 2 and will be released as a standalone title on April 8. You can pre-order it today on Steam for just $18, a 10% discount.

Like all too many other games, Dino D-Day offers multiplayer combat set in World War II. However, in addition to allies and Nazis, the game features dinosaurs—and they’re armed to the teeth. The teaser trailer embedded above provides glimpses of gameplay, but it was posted all the way back in November of 2009. The footage shown might not be representative of how the final product looks and plays.

Fortunately, the developer has released a batch of fresh screenshots that look a little more polished. I’ve embedded them in the image gallery below along with some beautifully retro promo posters created for the game.

    These types of articles are always great fun for the image gallery box. Right now I see: SSD, notebook, graphics card, propaganda poster of Uncle Sam beating up a raptor. Sweet!

    Is it just me or do the buildings look alot like thos in Medal of Honor Allied Assault Breakthrough (the one that takes place in Nort Africa)?

    This game looks like a great start, but it needs more pirates, ninjas, zombies, wasteland mutants, robots, time travelers, hookers, aliens, demons, men in deepsea diving suits with drills, scary little girls, ghosts, and North Koreans.

    Once they incorporate all of these different yet VITAL elements of a modern day shooter, then and only then will we have a game that can build into the most epic, supremely entertaining game ever made:

    Fall of Honorable Doom: Modern Singular Reach of the Homefront: Fear What’s Left For Dead, The Crisys is a Shocker!

    Man I really feel for our future generations if the extent of creativity is the Vietnam war fought along with club-weilding cavemen, and Iraq Wars fought with Knights of the Round Table.

    Needs more aliens where an alien pops out of an alien’s mouth out of an alien’s tummy out of an alien’s toe.

      What they’re missing is zombies.

    They didn’t do their research… i believe the predominant theory is that dinosaurs are much closer to birds than reptiles.

      That’s only because today’s birds also walk on two legs and lay eggs. That’s not much of a cross section yet in my opinion.

    I really hope they have the posters for sale. Framed up on the living room wall, it would make a great conversation piece.

    As I have stated elsewhere, I’m going to hold out till the zombie dino version.

    Only in the US could the re-extinction of an entire species, no matter how fascist, would be a cause for celebration. /pointless rant

      Shooting up random people and cute animals would upset some action group somewhere. Let’s pick Nazis and dinosaurs, then. Or spiders. Or zombies. Because they might look like people and animals, they clearly are not, they are Bad, and shooting them in the face will not harm The Children.

      Society’s pretty weird, in all hypocrisy.

        • alphadogg

        So, you are asserting that the psychological impact of shooting a spider or a nazi zombie in a game is equivalent to the impact of shooting a child in a game?

          • Sam125

          Wow, you missed the boat on that one. No, he’s saying shooting zombies/Nazis/dinosaurs/spiders etc etc won’t cause as much of a public outcry as opposed to shooting bunnies/random people/other cute furry animals and it’s hypocrisy/arbitrary that society deems it’s OK to shoot at one group in a video game (like nazis, zombies etc), but it’s “evil” to shoot anything else (like in Grand Theft Auto games).
