Age of Jura


Age of Jura video game Developed by Mystic ERA games and published by Mystic ERA games

Developed by Mystic ERA games and published by Mystic ERA games

Get ready for a RTS dinosaur game in an old forgotten age, the Age of Jura.

A piece of history...

Let us go back to the age when humans lived among dinosaurs. I hear you thinking, "What?! Humans never lived amongst dinosaurs!". Let me enlighten you.

For a long period of time humans lived in the shadows of dinosaurs. The animals were always on the top of the food chain, and finally the humans just had about enough of it. The only way to break free from the constant threat was to eliminate the enemy.

There have been many theories about the extinction of dinosaurs. A meteor impact, a vulcanic eruption, sea-level regression, or even cosmic radiation from a nearby supernova. Now, the reason these stories exist is that people were actually a bit ashamed of the mass killing that went on in that age, so people were not speaking about it. After decades of generations the real story was lost, and people came up with there own theories.

But back to the real story. The age where humans finally stood up against their enemy.

Let's visit the Age of Jura.

Your main goal

Each island you discover is filled with your worst enemies; dinosaurs. Make sure the human race will be on top of the food chain.

Take control of a group of villagers and lead them in a top-down perspective to:

Gather resources

Research new technologies and weapons

Defend your village

Expand your colony

Hunt down all dinosaurs
