Escape from the Cretaceous

By Ben Manarello

“We owe our existence to nature, and let us not forget how fortunate we are that the dangers of nature’s past, are in the past.”

Join three Alphadon mammals as they face the perils of the late Cretaceous. Among their many challenges to stay alive, they must survive an onslaught of earth's deadliest predators. They must avoid accidentally being flattened as thin as paper by some of the largest herbivores that ever walked the earth, towering over 30 feet high and weighing over 80 tons!

The diversity of life on land in this time is impressive and dangerous, but if you were to find yourself running for your life the last place you would want to seek refuge is in the water.

The oceans in the Cretaceous contained some of the most ferocious creatures ever to exist on the planet. It was a constant kill or be killed underwater realm. This world presents countless obstacles that need to be overcome to survive. The question is… what kind of animals are best adapted for the upcoming apocalypse? Who has what it takes to survive?

Welcome, to the Cretaceous!
