I want to know what the deal is with the half blue guy...

I also think the DNA lights might be toggleable to show other things, as the logo on the left of them looks very button like, and is different here;

the creatures are quite awesome too, and the legs rock XD



I would say that the one thing on the right highlighted green would be the communications panel, with roar (it's in red and looks like a mouth, it also has a timer look which meens it's probably just been used, with the main creature in shot looking far more active than the others) and sing (to the right of it, unused in the pic) - it'd probably add more

(on that note, anyone else notice we get musical instruments!?)

The panel directly attached to that, above it, looks like the targeting/attacking panel, which would update with all available attacks you have. Here, bite, claw and drill(?)

It reminds me of the footage of the tribal stage when the tribes were fighting and they had different color "war paint". (At least, I think it was war paint.)
That would imply the blue guy wasn't a member of your pack.  But that doesn't seem right if that is supposed to be a picture from the creature stage though.

My guess about blue-dude, is he is a soldier.
the other two are just standard creature tribesmen.

But it appears to be the creature stage not the tribal, thus the mystery.

Those fat critters in the back look pretty cool and they're not shaped like bananas.

Actually, if it was tribal I would figure that the blue creature was from a different tribe.  In normal rts games, players are each given different colors. 

Look here.

Now, at 00:29, two of the same exact race are fighting each other.  The only way to tell the difference is one team has blue markings, the other red.  At 00:27 they are fighting with the same exact creature as well, but this one has green markings.  Thus, I think every tribe will get a color.

The only thing that confuses me, is this is creature stage, so why would they be colored now?

Competition amongst your own race. Maybe pack/terratory fighting, etc.

Due to the low quality of the blue on the guy in the background, I'm guessing it is some kind of texture error that they missed before releasing the picture.

well... look at the back of the closer creatures and legs of the closer creatures, they have special texturing on these. Look at the blue creature, the blue is on parts where there were textures on other creatures. Also since the blue looks completely solid and not shaded at all, my guess is that is is an error.

sorry i dont see what you are talking about the blue, to me it seems ok and you might be mistakeing the less detail on it with the orignal becuase its farther away and harder to see

maybe you're right, in fact I hope that I'm wrong. Mostly because I like the idea of different tribes being different colors, or just different colored creatures all together.

I think the blue must be a male/female designation. This would make sense to me.


Also the question of same race fights makes sense. Given that this is an early stage they are still primitive and not civilized. I remember many times on the discovery channel of dinosaurs of the same species fighting eachother over things. This concept makes sense to me.


So what I'm getting at is that maybe we should ask WHY they are fighting and what for instead of whos fighting (now that we know that).
