I'm not being hyperbolic when I say that was the greatest tech demo ever. The name of the game is Primal Carnage. Developed by indie team Lukewarm Media, it's a classic retelling of the tragic dinosaur versus human conflict, as presented in a team-based multiplayer shell.
With five classes for each side, Primal Carnage won't just be dinosaurs kicking ass one-hundred percent of the time. Hopefully. What's neat is that the humans play from a first-person perspective while the dinosaurs are strictly presented in a third-person view.
I'm loving the name (reminds me of Primal Rage), the way it looks, and the concept. The game is still very much a work in progress, and we'll be sure to keep you updated as production slowly inches toward completion.
