Both took place on the island with dinosaurs and eventually served as an inspiration for the upcoming game. In the first demo you are just staring, as you will be closely looking at dinosaur, while in the latter you have already climbed up the cliff and explored the world around them.
In Robinson: The Journey, creators of both elements are combined together and process them in a much larger scale. More details were provided by Crytek executive producer Elijah Freeman in a post on the PlayStation Blog.
