It’s finally that time: we’re adding dinosaurs to Dinosaur Island now. Above is the ‘creation’ screen. As you can see we are modeling each dinosaur in great detail. We are tracking how much they’ve eaten, how much energy they’re expending, what their diet is, age, health. You can even give each dinosaur a personal name.
