Tap. Tap tap. Tap-tap-tap-tap-tap!
That’s the sound you’ll make playing Dinosaurs Are People Too. This (thankfully) historically inaccurate idle game imagines an alternate timeline in which dinosaurs not only ruled Earth, but formed their very own civilisation.
It begins with an undeveloped 3D planet. A few taps on the rotatable sphere generates resources. Then, you can build a carrot farm to unlock new dinos and mining endeavours so you can earn ore, cookies (which our reptilian ancestors love, apparently), and other materials. Use those to build helpful structures like a Bolt Factory and, naturally, an IT Office.
Tap some more and you’ll eventually open up new eras, from the gritty terrain of the primitive Ancient Age to the star-filled skies of the futuristic Space Age. Each era offers new skills, such as bartering, which lets you easily move your resources around the map. There’s always more to discover.
And with expansion comes loads of new dinos, including a giraffe-necked diplodocus and a roaring T-rex. They’re not just prehistoric eye candy; they also increase the speed of your resource production. To further quicken your civilization’s growth, try tapping with multiple fingers. And watch for the flying saucers that occasionally zoom across the map – catching one will net you a huge bonus.
Of course, questions remain. How did the oversize lizards snag our coveted place in the historical record? Why do they need an IT Office? And how did they build it without opposable thumbs? Keep tapping and you just might find out.
