Development Blog #10 – Tranquilizing dinosaurs

junkerdaleDevelopment news

Greetings dinosaur hunters!

This week we present to you another way to catch your dinosaur: tranquilizing. We also show updates in map and controller support.

Tranquilized dinosaurs

Instead of using regular firearms players can now use a tranquilizer gun to put dinosaurs to sleep. It varies per dinosaur how hard it is to get the dinosaurs to sleep. And you need to hit them in the right spots to get a quicker effect. Tranquilizer gun houses only one tranquilizer dart in the magazine so players will have to reload after every shot. Things can get rough if a bad hit is scored and the dinosaur just keeps coming to you ...

Tranquilizer guns are now also available for purchase in the equipment shop. With them players need to use tranquilizer darts as ammo. They can also be purchased from the equipment shop.

Hunting contracts for tranquilized dinosaurs

Players can now do hunting contracts where the dinosaurs need to be delivered alive. They work in the same manner as regular hunting contracts except helicopters are called to move tranquilized dinosaurs.

Map

Players can now zoom in and out in the map view. This gives players the ability to explore the surrounding land in more detail before deciding where to go next.

Controller support

We’ve implemented first version of controller support for the game. Players can now move in menus with controller and do basic actions in the game using a controller.
