Growth and nesting was a stretch goal met during crowdfunding and will be added to every playable dinosaur. Most stretch goals will be implemented after the full game is launched.
However, we will try to make an exception for important ones such as Growth and Nesting as they can add considerable differences to the gameplay and we would want them in early.
The growth system will be dynamic and will feature a slow and gradual increase in size and body proportion from juvenile to adult without the need to go through dedicated life stage chunks, seamlessly growing from baby to adult.
With nesting, you can begin as a hatchling from an egg in a nest and grow up under the protection of your friends. Extra bonuses are planned for rearing up baby dinosaurs and for growing from an egg.
More information will be revealed about this mechanic as we arrive closer to its implementation date!
