Save Webosaurs, Lost PC Game
Save Webosaurs, Lost PC Game
Webosaurs was a great MMORPG game that lasted from 2009 to 2012. Similar to others like Club Penguin, Moshi Monsters, Bin Weevils, Animal Jam and U.B. Funkeys. It was a game in which you click around to explore amazingly detailed levels, interact with objects that trigger animations to help progress through the game. You play as one of four dinosaurs: Pterry the Pterodactyl, Horns the Triceratops, Stretch the Brachiosaurus and Rexxy the T-Rex. There are shops that let you equip armour, buy decorations for your cave, and acquire awesome and humorous character animations that can be triggered via a menu.
Diving deeper into the Universe of Webosaurs there are action packed mini-games that can be played to earn coins for the shops and to progress through the game. Webosaurs masterfully balances a family friendly atmosphere alongside Street Fighter styled fighting games, quizzes, puzzles, surfing games, and many more. The cut-scenes include both the game's story line told either through CGI short films or voiced over animated comic panels. There are also videos by the wild life expert, Nigel Marven - best known for his BBC miniseries Chased by Dinosaurs. You could learn through play in a fun, interactive and story rich environment with true facts about the beauty of our planet and the dinosaurs that lived on it.
As for more about myself and why this cause is important to me: one of my favourite games was U.B. Funkeys and most of my favourite species are dinosaurs, so the fact that a game like this exists makes it an absolute priority to save. I unfortunately never got to play it myself, but the many fans that I have talked with still have fond memories of the game and are willing to do everything they can to save it. Me, along with many others in a Discord community server focused on the restoration of other lost media such as this, are working to build a new server for the game, so it can run in multiplayer again. Though tweaking the files to run without Flash, I plan to have this accessible through the modern browser, along with a downloadable version and a version for BlueMaxima's Flashpoint, to ensure it stays preserved for future generations. Flashpoint was started in January 2018 by BlueMaxima in an attempt to outrun the disappearance of content prior to the death of Flash. It has since evolved into an international project involving over 100 community contributors, encompassing both web games and animations created for numerous internet plugins, frameworks, and standards.
