Multiplayer Unlocked!

125 likes

Yet again the generosity and enthusiasm of our backers amazes us. When we first started planning our Kickstarter, we worried a bit that people would balk at amount of money we were asking for to implement many of the features we considered core parts of what Saurian could be; individual variation, Dynamic environmental, more playable dinosaurs and Multiplayer.  We were concerned we might even have a difficult time reaching our initial goal. To have fully funded all goals through Multiplayer with 11 days to go is humbling, Thank you!

First off, with Multiplayer unlocked, we now have funds we can dedicate to finding and hiring a programmer or programmers who's main responsibility will be collaborating with the existing development team in designing and implementing the multiplayer version of Saurian alongside the existing single player. If you or someone you know has previous experience with this sort of work, feel free to send us your resume at sauriangame@gmail.com (only serious offers will be considered, candidates must be over 18 years of age)

We are not yet ready to reveal the exact form multiplayer will take, but once we have made some more progress into this feature we will post an update for you guys.

      Hopefully, with multiplayer, this won't end up like the isle, a great game, but with a bad comunity.

      You guys really aren't asking for much. I'm actually worried this is still too little for all the things you are doing. XD;;

      I'm very glad you guys got to multiplayer and i was so incredibly excited when i saw saurian hit 155k! i wish we could know what kind of servers you guys have in mind, but i guess you guys cant tell us everything, that might ruin the excitement. multiplayer will definitely add alot to gameplay i feel, especially if its the kind of multiplayer that lets you play with total strangers, since theres only so much an AI can do. i look forward to being able to play and see how this all unfolds!!

      Yay I am so pleased multiplayer has been unlocked. I love the singleplayer game, as there is no anger and trolling between players, and the NPCs are always there and respawning. (unlike mutiplayer games with no NPCs, as there could be no one online so you'd be unable to play correctly) I was hoping multiplayer would unlock so I could play this wonderful game with my brother, and now I can!! :D I hope there will be co-op LAN servers, as well as standard worldwide multiplayer where anyone can join the server. And I would love it if in worldwide multiplayer there would be NPCs too, so there is less fighting between players cause someone was killed by a player or there is a troll. Ah I'm so excited thank you!! Congratulations all backers for achieving this stretch goal and all the previous ones. I hope we can get the Two Medicine as as well. :)
