Trivia

Availability

The company went out of business and the game out of print almost immediately upon its release, making this an extremely rare and hard-to-find game.

Engine

Dinotopia uses the same engine as the company's previous game Halls of the Dead: Faery Tale Adventure II. Animator Allison Hershey writes on her site:

"As Dinotopia utilized the same graphic engine as Faery Tale, I trained the character animators of this project in how to use the in-house utilities and specifications for the engine. I also worked on converting special dinosaur mannikins into the correct 2D format for the animators to use."

Extras

The game comes with a pack of cards for playing the game Treble, which was invented by the executive producer and his son. It also includes a 12 page illustrated manual.
