  • Probablility to be completed in next 5 years?

    Just wondering... Do you truly think that Dinosaurs has a chance of ever becoming a game?

    If so why?

    Sid Meier, in an recent CGMagazine interview, expressed interest about redoing XCom or Master of Magic... and made some cryptic remarks about Pirates!, whilst some petitioned him to make a sequel to Antietam!

    Why would he return to Dinosaurs?

    And how would he make it into a better game... a game that could be viable and sell in today's market... without being a ripoff clone of Civ III and AC?

    Probably not with the next few years, perhaps in 5 years but more likely never.
    I'm building a wagon! On some other part of the internets, obviously (but not that other site).

      I think it depends on what he was going to try and do with the game. I never understood what they wanted to accomplish and what the game type was going to be. If you read the designer updates, you got the feeling they didn't know either. Each update was just about the complications of choosing RTS or TBS, or evolution game. They just didn't know what to go on.

      I think that if Sid or any other company comes up with an idea for a game with dinosaurs that it will be made immediately and be a huge success. People like dinosaurs. We have an obsession with them and all it will take is one good idea and it will be a huge market.

        i voted never, but then I never could figure out how they would make the game interesting to play. Dinos are cool, sure, but what do they do?

          They've given up and forgotten all about this game a long, long time ago...

              ...Perhaps they could have made a good RTS... But I really can't see Dinosaurs succeeding as a TBS game without being derivative and exactly like Civ or one of the civ-dino adaptations...

              Perhaps they should have crafted Dinosaurs like Sim-Life...?

                  I'd like to see an update of SimEarth. That, of course, is RTS, though, so I don't think Firaxis would touch it.
                  Everything changes, but nothing is truly lost.

                        I never got to play that game when it came out, and now it won't run with me...
