A downloadable game
You are the last surviving person in Dinotopia, a dinosaur theme park ravaged by escaped predators. You don’t know what caused the incident that set the dinosaurs free, but it was catastrophic. A pack of highly intelligent and oddly fixated raptors have your scent and are hunting you. Everyone has either escaped or become prey. You are alone.
Clever Girl is a game about the extraordinary lengths a person will go through to survive in the face of crushing odds and terrifying circumstances. It is a game about loneliness, fear, and the will to live.
You play the solitary survivor of a devastating failure of park security. The dinosaurs are loose. You’ve seen people torn apart by merciless killers and trampled by herds of colossal beasts. You may not have done any killing yourself, but you certainly caused deaths in your haste to find shelter. Who might still be here if you had just stopped to help?
You are now alone, subsisting on breakroom leftovers and adrenaline, recycled water and desperation. It is all you can do to wake up each morning and keep trying.
Clever Girl is inspired by the book Jurassic Park written by Michael Crichton and the movie of the same name directed by Steven Spielberg.
