StoneAge 2 sends gamers hunting dinosaurs

Even the Stone Age will go online soon. In StoneAge 2 Anime and Manga fans will discover a fanciful online world for their home computers. Besides the interaction between human players, the relationship between the characters and their pets, constitutes an essential game-play element. The skills of these cute companions and their capability to learn are decisive factors in determining the outcome of the turn-based fights.

Players will be able to download StoneAge 2 completely free of charge and play permanently with no monthly fees. The open beta of the localized German version will most likely start in late summer 2008. Other European language versions are in development. Interested players can find information and screenshots on the brand new German teaser site www.stoneage2.de. Historians and Manga fans can pre-register right away for the upcoming beta and will then receive all news about StoneAge 2.

In the land before time - StoneAge 2

Primeval spirits, mythical beings and dinosaurs once roamed the lovingly animated world of StoneAge 2. But since the mysterious disappearance of the mighty dinosaurs, aggressive and evil creatures have taken over the world. Hunting, gathering and defending their soil now dominate the everyday life of the Manga characters. Players fan out from their individual housing to look for food and resources. Fortunately for them, the pets stand by their sides with their unique fighting and healing talents. Players will attentively take care of their virtual companions. With good upbringing and training some might even be used as mounts. Hobby Neanderthals can choose from almost 200 pets and even create their own unique creature as a loyal escort. Before StoneAge 2, the Japanese developing studio DigiPark had already successfully operated its predecessor in China, Korea and Japan with almost 10 millions of players.
