As mentioned above, The Lost Wild is a first-person survival horror game set in the world of dinosaurs. The video game is being created by a development studio called Great Ape Games, based on the Unreal Engine.

The plot centers on a reporter named Saskia who is guided by a mysterious voice over the radio to explore abandoned Japanese facilities located in an island forest teeming with the prehistoric animals. These dinosaurs are highly intelligent and behave realistically like animals, with behavior that Great Ape describes as self-preservation instinct and reactive, systemic AI.

So, your survival depends on learning to study the animals and anticipate the dangers. With the help of the mysterious voice, you'll make your way through the facilities, putting together the pieces of the story of how you ended up on the island.

To do this, you need to explore the wilderness, stay alert and dodge. If all else fails, run or try to intimidate the dinosaurs with non-lethal weapons, which can lead to an intense cat-and-mouse game. Players can camouflage themselves to avoid detection while exploring, create distractions or fight off dinosaurs with items such as torches and makeshift weapons.

Similar to Stray, there will only be a solo campaign with a length of six to ten hours.
