Gaming Made Me: The Trespasser Demo

By Craig Pearson on October 30th, 2013.

There there.

I’m finally handed the opportunity to write about Jurassic Park: Trespasser on RPS, but instead of hitting Isla Sorna like a sexy chaos mathematician, I instead drop into the less chaotic confines of the demo. I took some time to consider what I loved about Trespasser, a game that was widely regarded as the most disappointing release of 1998, and I realised that my fondest memories were of the demo. I still really like the game, but it was that little sandbox of dinosaurs and boxes that boiled down what I wanted from games. I managed to dig the demo up on TresCom, and installed two parts of the mods here to up the resolution and returned to that Lost World. It was there, when I was 19 and this felt like the future, that I lost dozens of hours. My inner child returned as I flapped my noodley arm around at raptors, so I did what every responsible adult would do: I interviewed him. Here is the transcript of the chat between 19 year-old me, and the handsome, witty grown-up that idiot somehow spawned.

Oh, Alright: Have Some New X Rebirth Screenshots

By Craig Pearson on October 23rd, 2013.


Just the other day I gave you all the gift of a new trailer for X Rebirth, and Egosoft has followed that up with a few new screenshots. I was in two minds about posting them: I am in danger of dragging everyone down into the gravitational pull of my personal excitement, and should probably stop making words about it, but then I clicked on them and my instant reaction was to share. They are very pretty, particularly the one with the asteroids. So here they are, a gallery of gorgeous space graphics.

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.
