Primal Rage is a fighting game created by Atari Games in 1994. The game features 7 giant dinosaurs known as Dino-Gods who will fight for dominance. The game was created to compete against Mortal Kombat which was popular enough to spawn games such as Primal Rage and later on Primal Rage also competed against Killer Instinct. The game was unique in that you played as dinosaurs rather than normal human charcters like Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter which brought people to the game due to the dinosaur craze of the 90's which mostly started due to Jurassic Park.
During the ancient times there where 7 beasts who ruled the land these beasts where known as the Dino-Gods. The Dino-Gods represented hunger and survival, life and death, hunger and decay, and of course good and evil. The Earth was primitive and life was complex with instincts of survival in mind. A constant balance had to be made by the gods and that this balance helped the Earth evolve to have much more complex creatures and soon civilizations. Soon however the balance was disrupted by a man named Balsafas who say the threat the gods where to the rest of the universe and decided that they must be stopped so he took out the god he knew he could fight the goddess of insanity Vertigo during what was known as the Mesozoic Wars. During there fight both where casting spells back and forth and attacking each other for years until Balsafas had made Vertigo weak, he saw his chance and banished her to the moon in a tomb and put a magic barrier on the Earth to disallow her to return. This caused the balance to fall out of place and thus all the gods where weakened and Balsafas also trapped them as well. Now millions of years after this battle and imprisonment of the gods humans became the dominant species of the Earth and ruled with many cities and technology. However a meteor known as the great fire smashed into the Earth causing the continents to rearrange in a cataclysm which also destroyed cities and killed many of the humans. The remaining humans where helpless due to their loss of technology and cities. However this cataclysm allowed the shields to come down on the gods who had re-awakened from there prisons to the Earth destroyed and that they are now in the new Urth. The gods saw the humans and wished to conquer them as well as the new Urth, the gods are now angry and are ready to RAGE!

This is the Urth as seen in Primal Rage! The Urth resembles the skull of a tyrannosaurus breathing fire which could be Diablo. The Dino-Graveyard is not seen on the Urth but is apart of it just now one knows where it could be (I say its on the other side of the Urth and it is not shown since Atari did not want to spin the globe to show off the Dino-Graveyard. Click on the Continents to go to that area or click the text to each continent underneath the picture.
