The first trailer for Telltale’s Jurassic Park game has appeared. This is the first time we’ve seen game footage, albeit seemingly mostly cutscene, of a title that’s certainly surprised people. How will the episodic adventure people handle a license that seems to be so action orientated? Well, for starters, with a look that’s completely new for their projects. This is the first time we’ve seen something that isn’t heavily cartoonish. And for seconders, it’s a third-person adventure.
According to information mentioned last month in some frightening US magazine, while the game isn’t to be a shooter or anything so overtly action, it’s also not in the mold of Telltale’s usual games. The trailer below demonstrates this pretty well – it certainly has a very different feel.
Telltale have apparently compared its approach as similar to the PS3 David Cageathon, Heavy Rain, with puzzles alongside quicktime challenges. It’s due out in April, so hopefully we’ll have some clearer ideas of how it will all work by then.
