You, Dear Player, are on a mission to take selfies with all the dinosaur skeletons at the museum. But to what heights will you ascend in order to achieve the best selfies?  And to what depths will you sink? Action, intrigue, and  youthful rebellion await...

This game, made for the "Dinosaur"-themed Bitsy Jam, is my Bitsy debut. I learned a lot over this past week, and will put that to even better use for my second Bitsy game, whatever that may be. As for now, I'm still researching how to add audio to this game, and I'm correcting a few minor details for v1.1 as well, but I'm hungry for helpful tips for using Bitsy, and open to criticism regarding game design in general,  so have at it in the comments!

This game was great! Totally recommending it

Thank you! And be on the look out for a possible update to the game later this year.

climb on the dinosaurs

I got a message that saids "🎯⌚!" and it stopped, does this mean that the game is over?

Very strange... Can I please see a screenshot of that, if it happens again?

cool game in the beginning i climbed the first dinosaur then i couldn't climb any other dinosaurs then i noticed the air ducts....

This is great! Do you have an email address I can contact you at? I would like to demo your game in a short presentation I will be giving in a couple weeks.

Thanks! That sounds cool. Email me at

OMG this is sooooo cool! and for your first bitsy game, UNBELIEVABLE!!! thank you so much for this gift of a game!  <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3

This was so much fun with a lot of twists and turns, and great art. I liked the neat narrative tricks you used to move the story on.

What an amazingly funny game!

This is my new favorite game, thank you


Keep an eye out for updates soon! I'm adding music to it. One more track to finish...

This is great. Who hasn't been tempted to want to climb on a dinosaur at some time in their life? (I'm guessing since Ark exists, it's more more than a few.) I hate to think of how many panels you needed to make for these illustrations. For anyone who hasn't used bitsy yet, there's been a lot of work put into this!

You did some fantastic work on this.

I am majorly impressed with the work on the selfies and how well the narrative flowed. Truly a pleasure to play.

oh wow, i can't believe i didn't get around to this until now! this is such a fun story, and i really love the style of the selfies too

This Was Great, Just Really Good, Because Of The Story, It Is A Really Good Expirence... A Game, If You Will... :D  9/10 

Dont let the image fools you if you think this game is simple.

Actually this game has everything that a game should have. The narrate is really good. Although there isn't any audio in this game yet, but the dialog read like their are actually talking and be really vivid with different colors and text motions.

While you are playing, the change of the scene environment fit with the interaction style and those pump up achievement gives great feedbacks to the player.


how u take selfies

Climb to the top of the dinosaur's skull - or as far to the top as you can.

this game is not working, wtf

That's frustrating. Can you please describe what you're seeing - like is it just a black rectangle , or does it freeze on an image, or an error message or what?

Hi Andrew,

It seems to freeze at the start screen ( with the red 'do not climb on the dinosaurs' sign.



That's after the first textbox has been dismissed?
What happens when you press an arrow key at that point?

It works now. Thanks


I can hardly believe that you made this in just a week and as your very first game.

It's amazing, both in plot, story, storytelling, art and gameplay. I also love how you mix the past ( history and dinos ) with the now ( the selfie culture ).

Would love to reach out to you to ask you some questions on how you made this. Is there any way I can contact you?



Thanks, Vincent! This is only my first game in Bitsy, which goes to show how simple but versatile Bitsy is. You can email me at andrew_kepple @ and I'll be happy to answer any questions about making this game while it's all still fresh in my mind.

Awesome and thank you! You'll be hearing from me one of these days.


This is genius

Very nice story! I love all your accurate skeletons designs! Welcome to Bitsy world!


Thank you! I was impressed by your game for this jam, too.
