In the distant future, a science vessel, FMM UV, was looking for new planets to colonize. They discovered a strange planet with remarkably similar conditions to earth. This new planet, named FMM UV-32, almost immediately triggered plans for colonization. But these plans were canceled when it was discovered that the Earth-like planet was not yet past its Jurassic stage, and due to the carnivorous dinosaurs roaming this world, it was far too dangerous for proper colonization. Nonetheless, news of this prehistoric planet spread, and an Earth corporation, now known as DinoHunt Inc, purchased the planet as its property. DinoHunt Inc. allowed for a unique hunting experience, in which wealthy customers could hunt living dinosaurs for a price. You are one of these hunters and will travel to a world lost in time where you will hunt for the largest and most ferocious animals in existence.
Realistic Hunting Simulation
Carnivores is an authentic hunting simulation where you track and stalk your prey. Careful and thoughtful consideration must be taken during the hunt; to survive you'll need to know your preys temperament and mannerisms, and just like in real hunting, you need to be aware of your surroundings (you don't want to be caught downwind of a T-Rex or you'll end up being lunch).
Huge 3D Free-Roaming Open World
Visit huge, beautifully rendered and realistic 3D environments, each with their own unique Eco systems. There are pristine beaches, dense jungles, pine forests, muddy marshes, rocky plains and deserts to explore. Environments can be used to increase the odds of a successful hunt. Players can follow trails and track animal footprints. Awareness of wind direction is important since some dinosaurs can smell you. Using stealth and land elevation will give you a sound advantage over some of the more viscous dinosaurs.
Diversity of Dinosaurs to Hunt
There is a wide variety of different dinosaurs to hunt each with unique behaviors and intelligence. Currently we are planning on having 9-12 different dinosaurs but that number can grow based on pledge amounts. Each dinosaur will require slightly different hunting tactics.
Weapons and Equipment
Choose between a high caliber rifle, a sniper rifle, a silent crossbow or tranquilizer gun, which puts your prey to sleep instead of killing it. You can also carry sidearms for emergency protection. Some of your equipment includes a handheld Gadget, which includes radar and GPS satellite positioning to make tracking the beasts easier, Cover Scent which masks your smell and numerous other goodies, which will prove indispensable for your hunting adventure.
Every dinosaur in Carnivores has realistic, advanced AI logic, so from species to species each will react differently to you. Some dinosaurs will flee if they see you, while others will become enraged and attack. If an animal is wounded they become unpredictable so be sure to make your shot count. During your adventure you'll experience everything from "pea-brained" dummies to cunning dinosaurs, with heightened senses of sight, hearing and smell. So be careful and stalk your prey intelligently otherwise they might end up tracking and hunting you.
After a successful hunt, the downed animal is taken to your Trophy Room, which has all the creatures you have ever bagged. When you kill a creature you already have in the Trophy Room, only the biggest one is kept. You can send an invite to your friends to visit your Trophy Room. There will be different Achievements to celebrate every significant success in a game. Achievements will drive the player to replay certain missions under different conditions, for example "Kill the T-Rex with a crossbow".
