Fan’s Folly: Jurassic Park: Aftermath

By Craig Pearson on March 14th, 2013.

Here’s how much I love Jurassic Park: back in the Dextrassic period (January 10th 2007 to August 28th 2011), I lived with internet-famous John Walker and a bunch of other handsome people. We all shared a cat. The antics of that cat have been well documented in the pages of The Cat Magazine, but there’s one thing John doesn’t mention in all his articles about MY cat. Whenever Dexter wanted a cat treat, he’d sit up on his back legs and eat them out of the palm of our hands. He looked like a cute little brachiosaurus. Picture this: three grown men and a lady standing in a broken kitchen, one feeding a standing cat as the others hum the music from the movie… which brings me nicely to this astonishing looking Jurassic Park fanmade Cryengine game: Jurassic Park: Aftermath

Casual Terror: Jurassic Park Preview

By Alec Meer on August 30th, 2011.

I'm writing this in a room in Sweden full of games journalists, and not a one of them could think up a good dinosaur pun. It is the saddest moment of my life.

Trespasser it ain’t, but despite being a far easier sell Jurassic Park: The Game: Episode One: The Intruder is likely to be the title which confounds the argument that Telltale make formula adventure games, simply variations upon a structure and style they hit upon with the first series of their Sam & Max episodes. This is something a little different, the moment when Telltale prove their design ethos isn’t frozen in amber after all. While seasoned adventure nuts will perhaps bounce right off this officially-sanctioned side-story to the first film due to its very casual approach puzzling and danger-dodging, it clearly aims to draw a crowd far beyond nostalgic Lucasartisans. Specifically, a crowd who want to see people om-nom-nommed by bloody great dinosaurs.

Dinosore: Telltale’s Jurassic Park Delayed

By Quintin Smith on April 27th, 2011.

Here today, horn tomorrow.

PC Gamer report that Telltale have sent an apologetic letter to everybody who pre-ordered Jurassic Park, stating that the game will not be coming out this month as planned and will instead be arriving this Autumn, together with fallen leaves and a creeping loss of daylight. The slightly funereal missive, which contains such grim strings of words as “This has been a hard choice for us,” “We regret any disappointment” and “We will begin issuing the refunds” can be read in full after the jump. Poor Telltale.

Scale Models: Jurassic Park Dinosaur Trailer

By Quintin Smith on March 30th, 2011.

How did he even get *in* there?

The second trailer for Telltale’s Jurassic Park game has come stomping and snorting onto the internet (you can see the first here), and it features a lot of Telltale types confirming that they’re dropping their traditional point’n’click formula like a hot stone for something more action-heavy. A guy totally gets skewered by a horned dinosaur in the trailer below! Top stuff. Triceratops, specifically.

Telltale also talk about the new, never-before-seen dinosaur they’re bringing to Jurassic Park for the first time. What could it be, do you think? I was hoping for the Protarchaeopteryx but was disappointed.

ROAR: First Jurassic Park Trailer Stomps In

By John Walker on February 18th, 2011.

doyouthinkhesawus

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.

Jurassic Park Game Inspired By Heavy Rain

By Quintin Smith on January 10th, 2011.

I really hope somebody out there gets this joke.

Telltale has told Game Informer that its upcoming episodic Jurassic Park game will be a more tense, slower-paced experience than its usual adventures games, and that the team are taking an inspiration from David Cage’s PS3-exclusive Heavy Rain. Specifically, the interview states that Telltale is “going above and beyond to develop something new for Jurassic Park: Episode 1.” The game is set partially during and partially after the first Jurassic Park film, so, mm.

Is that interesting? I thought that might be interesting. More importantly, have you guys all played Trespasser yet? Look, I’ll put a video of the beginning of the game beneath the jump. This 1997 FPS was light-years ahead of its time.

Back To Back To The Future. Also, Dinos.

By Kieron Gillen on June 9th, 2010.

I love you, Doc Brown.

News breaks that Telltale have signed up the licences for Jurassic Park (mildly excited) and Back To the Future (VERY EXCITED INDEED). Not much to say yet, except they’ll be out in Winter and Ste Curran spent most of the early 00s hanging around in Bath Night Clubs saying “I Like It When Biff Gets His Head Stuck In the Manure… he tries to get McFly, but McFly is too quick for him!”. I have no idea if this was a reference or not, but I still find it funny. Let’s hope that the games are better than the first Back to the Future on the Spectrum…
