Off-Road Velociraptor Safari. Those are words that don't seem like they should go together. But oh, they do!
I'll explain. Yesterday, a friend sent me a link to the trailer for a new game called Jetpack Brontosaurus. It is exactly what you probably imagine. Just in case your imagination isn't so hot, here's the trailer:

Pretty sweet. Who knew dinosaurs could be so graceful in the air? Anyway... I forwarded this to fellow game lover, Erik Henriksen, who informed me it was developed by the same people who created Off-Road Velociraptor Safari. The concept of O.R.V.S. is that you are a velociraptor driving a jeep with the goal of mowing down as many other velociraptors as you can. So, kind of like Grand Theft Auto meets Jurassic Park. The great thing is that it's a web based game that you can play from your browser. Here's the trailer:

I personally love the fact that when you make a kill the whole thing goes slo-mo. Plus, notice that you can deploy a spiked ball and chain from the head of a captured triceratops in the back of your jeep. Man, I so wish I had one of those!
I've been playing the game for a bit and there are plenty of other ways to score points. You can attempt to destroy your jeep, or do crazy stunts, or daredevil jumps... The controls are a bit tricky, but they are very very simple.
If O.R.V.S is this fun, I can't imagine how many deadlines I'm going to blow with Jetpack Brontosaurus.
