Dino D-Day is a multiplayer-oriented class-based World War II first-person shooter developed and distributed by 800 North and Digital Ranch for the PC (via Steam) on April 8, 2011. Originated as a one-map single-player "prototype" game modification for Half-Life 2 (released on November 11, 2009) and powered by Valve's Source Engine, the game introduces an alternate history where Nazi scientists have found a way to breed killer dinosaurs, creating a powerful raptor army serving the Third Reich. Players are thrown into conflicts (Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill, and Objectives) in North Africa as one of 16 unique playable classes (9 human classes, 5 regular dinosaur classes, and 2 special dinosaur classes).
Factions and Classes
Dino D-Day pits players as one of two factions: the Allies and the Axis. Each faction has direct access to seven playable classes each. In some maps, the Axis can have access to one of two special dinosaurs (the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Styracosaur).
|Allied Classes (Hardgrave's Team)|
Captain Jack Hardgrave American paleontologist turned battle-hardened dinosaur hunter, who sometimes need to feed the urge to punch dinosaurs in the face.
Weapons: M1 Garand, Colt .45, MK2 Frag Grenade, Fists
Special Ability (Berserk): After killing three enemies in a single life, the player can make Hardgrave go berserk by pressing the special ability key. While berserk, he is only able to use his fists, but he can absorb a greater amount of damage taken.
Corporal Joe Spencer American former track star and the Allied forces' agile "scout" class, equipped with powerful sticky grenades and artillery strikes.
Weapons: Thompson SMG, Colt. 45, Sticky Grenades, Fists
Special Ability (Artillery Strike): By holding the special ability key, a targeting reticle appears on the position the player is facing at. Pressing the primary attack button then dispatches an artillery strike at that location (after ten seconds).
Captain Nigel Blithe-Crossley British expert paleontologist, who uses a pump-action shotgun for close-quarters combat and the PIAT anti-tank weapon against certain armored dinosaurs.
Weapons: Trench Gun, PIAT, Smoke Grenade, Fists
Ilona Vike Latvian partisan and skilled sniper seeking revenge for the dinosaur destruction of her village, also carries a trap for a specific breed of dinoasur.
Weapons: Mosin-Nagant, Nagant Revolver, Fists
Special Ability (Rabbit Trap): In the weapon slot normally reserved for grenades contain one dead jack rabbit, which can be thrown to lure in velociraptors.
Camille Brun French partisan, who was trained as a combat nurse during the French Resistance.
Weapons: Sten Gun, P38, Fists
Special Ability (Healing): Camille has two methods of healing friendly players: throwing health kits and direct healing (in similar vein to the Left 4 Dead series). In the weapon slot normally reserved for grenades contain 5 health kits, which can be thrown to teammates to create a range-of-effect area that heals friendly players for 20 seconds. She can also directly heal players by holding the special ability key near an injured teammate (with no cost to her throwable health kit supply). Injured players are shown at all times with a pulsing red outline.
Jakob Frank German Jew and a powerhouse force for the Allies.
Weapons: BAR, Flechette Gun, MK2 Frag Grenade, Fists
Trigger Added in the July 28, 2011 update, it is a Protoceratops rejected by the Nazis (due to a birth defect in its back leg) and taken care of by Hardgrave's team. It is equipped with a powerful .30 cal machine gun on its back (which tends to overheat) and can knock enemies down by ramming them.
Weapons: .30 Cal MG, Ramming attack
|Axis Classes (Dinosauriergruppe)|
Hptm. Kurt Streicher Accomplished painter and "perfect assault soldier" recruited from an elite unit of the Wehrmacht.
Weapons: Mauser K98, MP-40, Stick Grenade, Knife
OLt. Karl Hissman Skilled falconer and outdoorsman, who uses both his sniper rifle and his army of kamikaze pterosaurs to take out enemies from afar.
Weapons: Mauser K98 (with Scope), Luger, Stick Grenade, Knife
Special Ability (Kamikaze Pterosaur): By holding the special ability key, a targeting reticle appears on the position the player is facing at. Pressing the primary attack button then dispatches a pterosaur strapped with a 80mm mortar at that location. The reticle can also be locked on to an enemy player, in which the pterosaur will chase the target before exploding.
HptFw. Wolfgang von Graff Veterinarian and Combat Medic, who can heal dinosaurs on the front lines just as well as human soldiers.
Weapons: MP-44, Luger, Knife
Special Ability (Healing): Graff has two methods of healing friendly players: throwing health kits and direct healing (in similar vein to the Left 4 Dead series). In the weapon slot normally reserved for grenades contain 5 health kits, which can be thrown to teammates to create a range-of-effect area that heals friendly players for 20 seconds. He can also directly heal players by holding the special ability key near an injured teammate (with no cost to his throwable health kit supply). Injured players are shown at all times with a pulsing red outline.
| Fast and agile carnivores with an incredible leaping ability, who can pounce on enemies for a speedy kill (as long as there are no delicious dead rabbits lying around).|
Special Ability (Pounce): Jumping at an enemy while holding down the secondary attack button causes the player to latch onto the victim for an instant kill.
Special Ability (High Jump): Jumping directly after crouching sends the player soaring high through the air, allowing the player to reach higher places.
Desmatosuchus A walking reptilian tank who can shell enemies from afar while being able to easily absorb bullet barrages.
