Welcome to the world where time travel has finally become a reality.The discovery was made by a small research team initially dedicated to paleontology. The inventors quickly formed a corporation and patented the technology, creating a monopoly on teleportation. This company was officially named Dinogen.Fearing corruption and espionage, Dinogen set up research camps around the world in desolated locations to advance their research on dinosaurs undisturbed. Having the ability to extract living dinosaurs from the past set them miles ahead of opposing research groups, who had only just begun experimentation in DNA cloning.As expected, these competitors set out to steal classfied Dinogen technology and data which caused major conflict. Dinosaur research now became a violent and dangerous venture to invest in.Subsequently, Dinogen decided to build its military presence. Each research camp had a security team consisting of highly-trained soldiers whose task was to both defend the camps and to protect researchers when extracting dinosaurs from the past.You are the chief security officer of Dinogen Research Camp 002.

There are no checkpoints. You will need to remember the narrow paths of the jungle in order to survive. Rushing ahead can be suicide, especially without your allies. You have the ability to respawn only 1 time. After that, you will have to restart the mission after being killed.
As you progress through the missions, you'll find they become progressively more difficult. Later missions will require careful planning; not blindly running through the jungle.
Often times you can find hidden areas along with hidden weapons and ammo crates. Be sure not to miss these items, as running out of ammo or missing out on a stronger weapon can often cost you your life.
You will also come across mounted weapons. These are extremely powerful tools; be sure not to waste them on frivolous enemies like compys. Save them if possible, as you never know when a top-tier predator will be on your tail.
