Dinosaur Fossil Hunter is a simulator game where you play as paleontologist, exploring desert lands and searching for dinosaur fossil.

Search, dig, study uncovered fossils and prepare the skeletons to learn about extinct species and build your own museum!

Enter Dinosaur Fossil Hunter, where we help you live your dream of becoming a famous paleontologist. You take the role of a young man who wants to achieve his biggest dream of traveling and discovering fossil that predates mankind. The story you will play serves as a tutorial that teaches you about the basic mechanics of the game.

Explore three different US States – Montana, Wyoming, and Utah, traveling by your cars in search of the prehistoric fossils. Force your way through mud, water, and various environmental hazards, explore vast terrain, destroy rocks or bodies of water to reach your prize. Use many tools, such as chainsaw, shovel, dynamite or pickaxe to achieve your goal.

Use your georadar to search for clues and discover the remains of many extinct species, adding up to the insight about the Earth's distant past. Dig out the wisdom of the planet but be careful! Precious fossil is very delicate and you can break a valuable finding quite easily. You need to carefully clean the bones, making sure that nothing will get damaged before you can finally assemble a complete prehistoric skeleton. Manage your know-how, using the portable in-game tablet and become the world-renown paleontologist.

While Pyramid Games' Dinosaur Fossil Hunter kickstarter campaign is fully funded, surpassing the $20,000k mark, there are still 10 days to go and many more stretch goals to fund.

Funds collected during this period will allow the developers to finish their work on the game - by reaching the first threshold, the Early Access version will be polished, the next ones will allow for further development of the game. The studio plans for this title include the addition of dynamic weather, the expansion of exploratory mechanics or the personalization of the museum. And these are just a few of the improvements for which funds are being raised during the ongoing campaign.
