What does it mean?! Come find out!

By now many of you have probably seen RJ Palmer’s stunningly technical and highly nuanced piece of Photoshop work displayed at the top of this post.

Naturally this ambiguous image has led to quite a few questions, including several of you who wanted to make sure we weren’t losing our minds. Fear not, we are (for the most part) in good mental health, but we figured its time we explain ourselves and this image, and what better way to do that than a Livestream?

Come join us on Twitch at 5pm Eastern Time Monday, August 24th for all the details.

    Why does the t-Rex have feathers?

    I just saw your new Tyrannosaurus rex design and I must say it’s fantastic. Say, after finishing the initial Hell Creek stage of the game, have you guys considered doing a formation from the East Coast, such as the Navesink/New Egypt Formation (they are from the same time period, it is just that the New Egypt Formation is further inland, and so they are often categorized together). As a museum researcher focusing on the continent Appalachia, I wanted to inquire.

      As far as I know the game will center exclussively on Hell Creek, even if another location was chosen for the future I doubt it would be any formation in Appalachia since they aren’t as well studied and the fossil record is a lot more incomplete than that in formations of the Western States. A pitty since I had always wanted to find out more about the paleobiology and biodiversity of Appalachia…

        Of course there’s that issue, but you would be surprised on how much we do know about Appalachia. It’s just that many of the specimens haven’t been fully documented in scientific literature. We have diverse floras and faunas from a couple different formations, especially those outcropping in New Jersey, Delaware, Alabama, and North Carolina. Although it might be more of a challenge to reconstruct the ecosystems of Appalachia, it’s certainly not impossible and I’m confident that the Saurian developers have enough knowledge and know of enough sources to design a game centered around an ecosystem within it.

          Well the fauna of both Laramidia and Appalachia were similar, tyrannosaurs (T.rex and Appalachiosaurus + Dryptosaurus), hadrosaurs (Anatosaurus and Hadrosaurus + Hypsibema, which grew to absurd sizes as well), nodosaurs (Denversaurus and Silvisaurus) and ceratopsians (Triceratops + a recently un-described species that only consists of a tooth found in Louisiana), the “Lurker mosasaur” mechanic could still work and the flora wouldn’t be that different from that in Laramidia

    Can’t wait to see it! So excited! 😀
    So there’s new material, you’ll incorporate into the design?
