Here’s my submission.  This is my first compo, but I think you’ll like this.  I have included WinXP and Debian binaries in the zip:

I had to forget about sound to get it in on time.

    It just quits when i press start (not leaving anything in stdout or stderr).

    :/

    Hmm… It’s not finding the pictures when I use Wine. That would be a problem. I’ll post a new build when I get back to Windows.

    i get the same results as increpare

    Of course, it was a .dll problem… Grr… Well, try the download again, please!

    worked fine for me, a fun little one this 😀

    i laughed many times at various points playing this. great humor. like the quick intro .. and surprise title change! The dino ‘suit’ is too damn cute as well as the little comments like ‘ frank loves his job’ was great.

    I played pretty far but then a trex came along and he was too fast for me to be able to really get a bead on him and I died. loved my surprise at seeing a pterodactyl. lotsa fun.

    Thanks! If you want to see the intro again, you can delete the ‘ranOnce’ file that appears in the directory.

    Did you really see a T-Rex? It may have been just a Velociraptor. They are kinda tough. Use your dino-stealth (and stealth attacks are vital)! I hope you can make it to the end of the game 😉

    I did forget to specify exactly what Frank’s job was, but it’s not a big deal.

  8. HybridMind says:

    OH – I guess it was a velociraptor.. :)

  9. HybridMind says:

    OOOH.. hehe.. 5400 score.. and I finally did beat it. Very fun.

  10. increpare says:

    ah, works now; pretty cute :)

  11. mrfun says:

    5400 here too. Great sticking projectile effect!

    Dammit I got scared when the dinosaurs started taking more than one hit to kill.. 😀

    Pretty fun and funny.

    Ha, Funny little game. Appartently shooting dinosaurs with a tranquilizer dart gun is all that it took to get my wife to play video games. If only I knew sooner…
