New Title from Fire Hose Games: Go Home Dinosaurs! Playable at PAX

Feisty indie developer Fire Hose Games will be introducing their brand new title, Go Home Dinosaurs!, at PAX this coming weekend.

Described as a fun, new take on tower defense players will piece together weapons shaped as puzzle pieces - all powered by tiny mammals - in an effort to defend against the invading menace: dinosaurs. Tower defense, gophers with lasers, dinosaurs and meteor showers - how can you resist when BBQs need saving from enemy pterodactyls? The cause is just, folks, time to wage war.

Your character and abilities can level up by collecting and trading cards, "This game has it all, blending short, simple, easy-to-get-into fun with deep mechanics that keep things exciting and new." While platforms are still up in the air, according to Eitan Glinert, Fire Hose Games' Fire Chief, they're hoping for "some combination of console, PC, mobile".

If you'll be at PAX you can check out the game at booth 6408, in Indie Alley and next to the PAX 10. Anyone that knows me knows that I'm more than a little fond of the TD genre, so I look forward to getting hands-on with the game and telling you all how it's shaping up!

Thanks Cat for supporting indie developers!

Slam Bolt Scrapper wasn't really my cup of tea, but I'll definitely check out Go Home Dinosaurs! Some of my favorite "on the go" games are from the TD genre. GeoDefence was great!

Will there be a multiplayer mode in GHD?

Cheers,

P.S. Cat, please try to get eitanglinert back to answer our questions.

Didn't you post this as news an hour ago?
Cat  +   1065d ago
This is where the news linked to (the news source)... So, yes!

We can post news that links back to N4G?
Cat  +   1065d ago
Short answer: they can link back to parts of N4G - like this. This is the N4G Blog - it's a source in itself. It's where N4G exclusives, contests, reviews, previews, and interviews are posted.

(so we don't completely derail this, feel free to PM me or submit a ticket with additional Qs in this vein!)

Free beer! Where?

...dammit I got tricked again.

@ Criminal: We'll probably have some form of multiplayer in the game, but to be honest we're still pretty early in development and haven't figured out the scope of the game yet. So I can give you a definite maybe!

I asked about multiplayer just to see if my site that's dedicated to MP should cover it, but I, for one, don't see the value in an MP mode in TD games. Sure, I played PixelJunk 2 player mode, it was fine. However, it's not what I'm looking for in a TD game.

I think if every developer focused on one game mode, they would make the best game possible with their limited resources. For instance, I played and beat Read Dead Redemption singleplayer; I tried and hated the multiplayer, which was definitely a tack on. Another example, I prestiged in Black Ops 15 times, but didn't touch the singleplayer for more than 10 mins. Sorry for the mini-rant, but I hate where this industry is headed, Ideally, I'd rather have those games broken into 2 discs so that I would be able to buy what I want to play. (I think I should write an article about this.)

All I have to say is good luck and use your resource wisely. I wish I can make it to PAX this year to check out DHG, hopefully next year.

Cheers,

FJ

A game should never have tacked on modes, I totally agree. Focus on what's fun and only do stuff if it's awesome. You're more or less on the same page as we are.

If you can't make it to PAX the simple solution is just to show up in Boston and play it here!

TD? I'm in!

Eitan, please tell me this is coming to console (preferably PS3 and 360)!

Best I could get was 'they're hoping for "some combination of console, PC, mobile".'!

I think Cat is addicted to cute looking indie games. Will have to see how this turns out. I'm usually a very supportive person when it comes to indie games, unless they are really bad. :/ Need more info, but I'll definitely keep an eye on this.
