Splitscreen Studios announced today that its 3d Browser MMORPG Dino Storm, would be making its open beta debut today.

In Dino Storm players take on the role of cowboys and cowgirls as they ride into the west defending their land on dinosaurs with laser guns. Not exactly how I remember the old west movies but hey riding into a town on a multi-ton prehistoric beast sure beats saddling up on a pony.

Players can explore the town of Dinoville while facing enormous wild dinosaur herds and merciless bandits on their hunt for valuable items. All the while accumulating fame and respect in order to claim the title of Sheriff.

You can head on over to http://dinostorm.com/en to try out the prehistoric wild laser-gun slinging west that is Dino Storm today.

    I actually found it boring, i believe it’s made for a younger audience, but it’s a fresh setting, combining cowboys, high technology and dinosaurs and it certainly did its best to distance it self from WoW and its clones.

    I can honestly say, that after playing this, i did not feel the need to shower like i did after trying out Sevencore. This has a ton more originality and charm.

    The great setting seams underused but if you don’t mind the grind you will enjoy this game.

    Unfortunately. I mind the grind.

    Well I’ll be.. I’ve been waiting for a game that involves two things: dinosaurs and lasers. Here it is. Unfortunate all other comments indicate it’s a boring grind fest, this could have easily been a dream come true.

    I don’t really know what to say…. just.. wow.. really? I thought abe lincoln vampire hunter was as abstract as it got. Points for being a unique idea at least.

    Yeah this game is pretty lame, but remember folks it is still in beta testing, so things can still change, honestly I hope they add a WASD movement scheme, point and click is such an old scheme. they need to utilize the complete keyboard.

    • blueskillz on August 31, 2012

      what are you talking about? Except for selecting targets, you can do everything with the keyboard. Moving with WASD, Basic attack with Space, Skills and items with 1-8. Use RMB to select without the menu.

      btw…the game rocks, especially all the dynamic group quests outside of Dino Ville

        hmm odd, I could not get WASD movement to work then all I got was point and click.
