WWII was a pretty bad time to be a soldier. But the danger of coming upon an enemy patrol or a sudden offensive pales in comparison to being overrun by dinosaurs! Dinosaur 1944 is a new cooperative defense game from Peteresen Games where players control army men versus an onslaught of giant behemoths. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Dinosaur: 1944 is a cooperative strategy game about army men vs. prehistoric monsters. In it, you and up to 3 other players control brave soldiers in a World War II setting, struggling to save the entire world from the threat of a Mesozoic rebirth. It is in part a battle game, as you maneuver around the map and fight the enemy. It is in part tower defense, as you place ambushes to help take out or slow down the incoming fiends. Each hero has unique strengths and weaknesses – your victory depends both in mastering your own hero and cooperating with your friends.
As the game progresses, you face more numerous foes and dinosaur bosses enter the field. Eventually you face the final boss – defeating her wins the game. Beware: if the dinosaurs devastate your base camp, you’ll be stranded on Kyuryu Jima, prey to the horrors therein.
The game's about 1.5x funded with only 9 days left to go.
