Alright, first of all, hello everybody!  It has been a long time since I patted out into the memorial lounge here.

What has brought me back?  A game, of course.  I am trying to identify an early PC game from back in the 256 mHz days.  This game must have come out around 1992, give or take a few years.  I feel like you are the chosen warriors that can help me in this quest.

 

The game was a dinosaur simulation title.  There were two main modes.  One was a selection screen were you could decide your dinosaur's attributes, and then you could go into a simulation mode where you had a thirst meter and a food meter.  If you were an herbivore you would eat trees, and if you were a carnivore, you would eat other dinosaurs.  Drinking water naturally refilled the thirst gauge.  The simulation mode was top-down and was rather clunky but balanced.

 

Honestly, that's almost all I'm goin' off of here and I beginning to be concerned it was an educational title by category and is lost in the legions of cheaply made 90's educational doldrums.  Does anybody have a lead?

A friend of mine played a game called Dino Park. That's, surprisingly, the only dinosaur-themed game that exists in my memory. A quick google search reveals this Wikipedia page (okay, it was called DinoPark Tycoon apparently?) and it came out in '93, so that's close to your timeline.

If being wrong's a crime I'm serving forever
