I'm not seeing anything that suggests it's actually related to those games... maybe the dev can shed some light.

Tatem Games was formed from old PC developers, not sure what the Carnivore series are, but I'm going to guess that they were a PC game series back in the day.

Yeah. If that's the case then it sounds plausible it's the same guys.

Hahaha im a die hard fan of older games
carnivore was this old game released around 12 years ago i think
it was my first video game i remember haha

anyways, like a lot of series, as more sequels were created the frranchise became old and dwarfed by larger and bigger games untilthe final game was made around 2003

lol its kinda funny seeing u guys not know bout this game :]
brings me back to the good old days....

the developer info box says it's based on teh original series
and i recognize the open world format in the trailer as that of the older carnivore games :]

It looks pretty complete to me based on the gameplay video, I suspect that they're just working out final bugs. Their site hasn't been update though, so it could've been abandoned. I hope not.

Really it's an awesome game, but as k loud said the frame-rate doesn't look very decent to me. I'm hopping it'll be different in the original game. I'd like to have a Dinosaur hunter on my 3GS.

I just emailed the developers asking about the status (we've already been in contact before, haven't heard from them for a month) so hopefully I'll have some news for what is going on soon.

They haven't. They're just working on optimizations. Also, @Aspargusman, you should watch the gameplay video which is a page back, I believe.

OP if you are thinking of beta testing DO NOT allow this user to be a beta tester all he will do is pirate it and put it on his app-pirating website

Have had some hands on time with the title (we're doing a preview), it's really awesome!

If you've played Carnivores 2 and love it this is going to be exactly what you're looking for. That's all I'm going to say here, haha, don't want to give anything away just yet. Also it really should be coming out relatively soon.

Stegosaurus is not a carnivore :(

veecheech
06-05-2010, 07:38 PM
There are plenty of Carnivores, if you've never played this game you wouldn't understand- the Stegosaurus is instrumental in your development as a player, you have to obtain certain guns (by gaining points from kills) before you can really have any chance of killing the larger dinos.

For instance you need something extremely accurate to kill a T-Rex- you have to shoot it in the eye, that's the only way to kill it. Once you have a certain amount of points you can unlock a sniper rifle! Although of course you can always shoot at it with your pistol and hope that you'll get it, but most of the time you'll end up dangling from the gigantic T-Rex teeth.
