The Stomping Land and the significance of campsites and totems

New, 4 comments

The latest trailer for The Stomping Land, the dinosaur-centric multiplayer survival game, outlines the process of establishing a campsite on the dinosaur infested-island, character customization and the significance of totems.

To set up a campsite, players must first create a campfire — meat has to be cooked before it can be eaten — and then a maximum of two teepees can be constructed. Teepees are used to store meat, items and weapons. Users can also create campsites together to share meat and abilities.

Teepees also give players access to the character customization panel. For example, players can change the color of items and decorate weapons with trophy bones from rare or difficult dinosaurs.

Once set up within a campsite, totems can be upgraded by sacrificing dinosaur meat to it, unlocking rare abilities for the tribe — such as taming a T-Rex. Only one totem per tribe is allowed and the totem creator is made the tribe's leader.

Former animator for Dungeon Defenders and Skyrim, and The Stomping Land's lead developer, Alex Fundora, launched a Kickstarter campaign earlier this month to crowdfund the game's development. At the time of writing, the campaign has raised $68,937 of its $20,000 funding goal with seven days to go.
