Gaming on PC in the 90s was a wonderful time filled with awesome new series. One of the many games I enjoyed back then was Carnivores. For those who never got to play, Carnivores is basically a hunting game with dinosaurs as your prey. Practically no one else has attempted to capitalize on dinosaur hunting since, which is why Carnivores is coming back.

Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn brings back the classic formula for a new decade of PC players. Helmed by Yaroslav Kravchenko, the original designer and creator, Digital Dreams Entertainment is taking their first steps to reinvigorate the franchise with new and returning features. Steps to modernize Carnivores include a supposedly massive free-roaming landscape, smarter dinosaur AI, and a variety of types to hunt. The team’s goal is to make sure each dinosaur type has its own temperament and behavior. With this being the case, you’ll have to be aware of how each acts in order to successfully take them down. Players will also be able to augment their hunting further with tracking via GPS.


The concept of hunting long extinct dinosaurs is certainly awesome, but is there still an audience for this once loved series? That remains to be seen, of course, but it does appear Digital Dreams are focusing heavily on their existing audience. As part of this, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn is currently only targeting a PC launch. Unfortunately, they’ve yet to specify what exactly “PC” means (Windows, Mac, or Linux) but if I had to guess I’d suggest the game is also Windows-exclusive. Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn has a $25,000 goal if you’d like to get in on hunting dinos.
