Can I play this on Mac now?

Per the project team (as of September 2017): Unfortunately due to the current issues we are experiencing with the Mac version of the game it has been delayed beyond our original estimate. Our latest devlog entry describes the problems and our current plan for the Mac version of Saurian on our official website: http://sauriangame.com/

What are the minimum/recommended specifications for Saurian?

Will Saurian be third-person or first-person POV?

The game will mainly be in a third person POV, but provided we reach our VR stretch goal there will be the opportunity to see through a dinosaur-eye view perspective! Saurian’s third-person perspective does also allow the player to zoom in and out, allowing a close ‘pseudo’ first-person POV! Last updated: Tue, May 24 2016 11:31 pm EDT

Will Saurian be single-player or multiplayer?

Saurian will initially be a single-player experience. But we hope to implement multiplayer some time after full release. Depending on if we hit our stretch goal or not (Which we have! Yay, multiplayer!) determines the priority of the multiplayer feature. Last updated: Sun, Jun 12 2016 5:11 pm EDT

How will multiplayer work in Saurian?

Due to the fact that multiplayer is so early in development, we are not ready to release the specifics of multiplayer at this time. Last updated: Sun, Jun 12 2016 5:11 pm EDT

We are unable to give exact shipping costs at this time. We are touching base with our project partners to give you guys estimates on shipping costs for specific physical rewards and will update this section as soon as possible! Last updated: Tue, May 24 2016 11:31 pm EDT

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
