Featuring a mixture of real-time strategy, city-building, resource gathering and… medieval dinosaurs. Well then, that's definitely a unique mixture and Dinolords went right into my wishlist. Coming from developer Northplay and Ghost Ship Publishing it ticks a lot of the right weird boxes for me.

More about it:

As you take command, you'll gather resources, hunt and tame the land. You'll use your resources to build a thriving settlement, attracting villagers and automating resource gathering and production. You'll construct and upgrade specialist buildings that'll keep your growing population happy and ready to be trained and enlisted in your army.
Man the ramparts

Construct fortifications and man the ramparts as the enemy attacks with an arsenal of fierce dinosaurs. A shocking new age in medieval warfare. Participate in these battles with strategic commands to your troops and keep your own sword and bow ready. Dinolords merges the strategy of RTS with the immersion of an Action RPG in a brew that's both nostalgic and entirely new.

Game Features:

  • A modern genre hybrid with a player controlled protagonist in a realtime strategy setting
  • Gather resources, automate, refine and craft goods and weapons
  • Build a medieval city with housing, production and specialist buildings
  • Build impressive fortifications with a modular castle system
  • Command units and participate in epic medieval battles
  • Dinosaurs!

Doesn't look like it will support Linux directly, but no doubt it will work with Proton so I'll be happily taking a look when it enters Early Access at some point. It looks too ridiculous to ignore! Can't wait to see some armored-up dinos smashing through my walls — hilarious.

At first I wondered if it was really different from any medieval RTS in which people ride boring animals, like horses or camels. Then I see a dino charging into a castle wall and destroying it.

I guess that's the difference.

Alright, props to whoever made that trailer, that sudden tone shift as the dinosaur appeared was pretty funny.

Yeah, they deserve a raise because it sold me on it.

It sounded dumb, and after the trailer, dumb fun! I may have to get this one later on.

QuoteApproximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“We'll keep developing this game as long as the community is interested in supporting us, until we're all happy with the quality and amount of content in the game. The Early Access period might last a year or more.”
The game makers have no release date goals. That is way too early for me to jump on board. I'll wait until their vision is completed.
