Hunt to complete the T-Rex skeleton the Professor has always dreamed of. A game made in a week for Easy Jam, it's nice and easy to play, no enemies or dying. Have fun :D

hey, I have a BIG update in mind.

the ideas will be compiled into a list that looks like a changelog
-Added more fossils
-Added more areas
-Added shop
-Added Iron Shovel (get from the shop for 20 coins)
-Added coins that are hidden in the ground, detectable by fossil radar
-Added option to choose which fossils you collect, including the option to find all fossils at once.
-Added free play mode, where you can experiment freely and find (and report) bugs


I love it! It's so cute and relaxing. The scanner is an interesting mechanic, and I like how villagers were clues. Good job!!

This was sweet. I like the visuals and especially the premise, good work in the jam! Now about a sequel with moar dinos... ;) 


Hey, thanks for playing and the in depth video!

My pleasure, it's a fun game. :)


The browser build was indeed  extremely buggy for me, the sound is extremely distorted and there are some visual issues. However, the desktop build works great. Nice sweet and relaxing game, definetly reminds me of games like harvest moon and stardew valley :)
