Parkasaurus wants you to create a dinosaur park, because that has never ended badly
The dino-hats are a great touch.
If Jurassic Park has taught us anything, it’s that we shouldn’t try to cage dinosaurs for amusement and money, but that is exactly what you’ll be doing in the upcoming Steam game Parkasaurus.
Using a cartoony graphics style, you’ll be in charge of creating a theme park and habitats to house a variety of dinosaurs as you balance their happiness with your (hopefully) ever-growing revenue stream. Considering dinosaurs require certain living conditions, you’ll be making different zones for the various biomes you’ll need to support dino-life.
There also promises to be different ways to profit and manage your park, with in-game “user reviews” that will let you see what you are doing right, and wrong, and what could be done to bring in more money to your park. Hiring employees will also factor in, but you’ll have options for training up rookies or bringing in the big guns that already know what’s up. If you park has been running smoothly, and the money overflowth, then those big guns will definitely be worth the investment.
Parkasaurus also looks to add some interesting twists with a time-traveling feature that will let you go back in time to procure the finest and rarest of dino eggs. And, of course, you’ll have to tend with rampaging dinos on occasion. For that segment, developer WashBear Studios says you will work on wrangling them via a first-person mode. The game obviously does not try to take itself too seriously, as seen by the amazingly ridiculous hats in the trailer.
The game enters Early Access on September 25, so if this is something that interests you, make sure to go ahead and put it on that Steam Wishlist.
