Dinosaur Safari is an educational game for PC and Mac created in 1996 by designers and scientists of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and developed by Creative Multimedia Corporation.
The player travels back in time and takes photographs of 60 dinosaurs for the National Chronographic Society. As one captures more photos, more items become available (e.g. video recorder, radar…).
You’ve been hired by the National Chronographic Society to bring back photos of every dinosaur you see. And it won’t be easy. You’ll be looking for them in 310 different locations. Sometimes they’ll be there. Other times they will cleverly avoid you. But you must keep looking.
It’s worth the effort.
As you capture the dinosaurs on film, you’ll fill data crystals with your images, which you will return to the Society for payment. Once you’ve completed your early assignments you’ll also be given more advanced tools… a video camera, radar, and a dinosaur lure.
