    Hi everyone,
    Back from Singapore. And thought I would drop by and say hello and give Dino Ranchers a plug :)
    We are starting to sign up closed beta testers and would love to get feedback from members here. You can sign up at www.dinorancher.com
    Look forward to hearing what everyone thinks,

    Thanks,
    Woobaa

    Love the art work. Could you give a little information on what the site is, or what it is about? Is it a clickable game, pet game, or? Is there a plot? What can you do in the game? Any more info you could give would be great.

    thanks. glad you like the art.
    It is a web browser based game. Running in flash. Fully interactive with mouse gestures. We are using Drupal 7 for our site. Right now in Phase 1 we have focused on hatching and raising the dinosaurs. We also built a community around the game. So players can have friends, send gifts, vote on each others dinosaurs. There is also a full functional avatar editor and virtual room for each player.
    You earn by caring for the dinosaur, and participating in the community in order to buy cool things to upgrade your terrarium and buy new dinosaur eggs to hatch.
    I am working on a story line now that revolves around players with pet dinosaurs. Kinda like Jurassic Park meets Pokemon.
    Dinosaurs have full FSM (finite state machine) to control behaviors and allow them to interact with player and things that happen to them.
    Our goal is to create very interactive experience, and then build upon that to allow players to train and compete with one another, go on cool adventures, breed their own dinosaurs, etc.
    Its been over two and a half years of development, with no outside funding. Pushing everyday to make things happen. I was thinking of starting a blog. "How to make a 6 month game in 3 years" "P

    Haha, very interesting concept. Would've never guessed it would be flashed based. Looking forward to checking it out. You said it would be out in a few weeks?

    This looks positively adorable!
    I signed up as Wrath for Beta-testing-at least I think I did, I just signed up with the link you gave us in your first post there so I hope I did, looks like my ID will be 102.
