Crytek producer Fatih Özbayram described the contents of the demo via Twitter:

“Our demo has a variety of interactions. One of them is the interaction with a Hollywood feel T-Rex which mimics your head movements. The narrative [of] our demo is you being a baby dinosaur sitting in the middle of a nest of other dinosaur babies about to hatch. We’ve chosen dinosaurs as we wanted to nod to the origins of Crytek.”

A Game using Back to Dinosaur Island’s assets would be amazing

We can only imagine how a game would look if Crytek ever decided to use these assets to create a title with a prehistoric setting. Exploring an environment like that and encountering these majestic creatures would be absolutely breathtaking.
