The Stomping Land is a early-access openworld survival online multiplayer game by Super Crit Studios. The goal of the game is to survive on this island you start on, but it will not be easy. There are many danger such as falling from heights, drowning, lava, other players/tribes, and the biggest danger is the dinosaurs that are living on the island with you!
You start off as a caveman of some sort with nothing but an axe. Much like the game Rust at the beginning where you start off with just one tool and then have to gather supplies to build better and more specific tools along with shelter, campfire, torches, and other things. As of right now there is only one map to play on and you will always start off somewhere on the outer rim on the beach (This provides a little bit more ease in to finding other players). Once you have the supplies you can set up a tepee so that in the event of death you will be given the option to re-spawn in your tepee instead of just a random location on the map. Once you have found your friends you may build a totem to start a tribe and then have your friends ask to join the tribe by clicking on the totem. Once they are accepted into the tribe you will be able to see their Steam names above their heads. There are also very dark caves that contain shining green herbs and bonus expertise circles. These herbs maybe used to revive players that are unconscious or tame a dead dinosaur to be your pet that you can ride (Depending on your expertise level). Expertise is a number that represents you experience for that current life. It increases by surviving, killing people, killing dinosaurs, and bonus experience circles from the caves. Your expertise level will reset if you die. The higher the expertise level the better the dinosaur you can ride (Although not all dinosaurs can be rode yet).
Since this game is an early access game it still has a lot of work to go and not everything that has been shown is even in the game yet. I am confident that Super Crit Studios will fully deliver on their game by the time they are done with the alpha process. I honestly can’t wait to see them fulfill their vision for this game. It is a very fun and exciting game to play especially with a group of friends. I highly recommend it if you are okay with buying a unfinished product, otherwise you should probably wait for the full release, but their is no time-frame on that as of late.
Overall this game is not too bad on one’s walk, but it does involve the killing of other cavemen and animals. Also involves the use of herbs for medicinal uses and taming dinosaurs. Also the cavemen do not have very much clothing own. Enough to cover the private areas on men though (Only men in the game). The game can be pretty violent at times and as well as the online community in the servers can be a bit rude (No different from Rust).
Summary: A wonderful game that could be the dinosaur game we all have wanted for so long!
