Jurassic World Evolution stomps out today

Frontier's dinopark-building management sim Jurassic World Evolution launched this morning, I'll remind you in case the waves of E3 announcements mean you forget games can even come out in 2018. It's a bit disappointing, our Jurassic World Evolution review will tell you, especially in comparison to Frontier's Planet Coaster, but you might still fancy it? It does, at the very least, have pretty dinosaurs.

Feature: Confessions of a dinosaur jailer

Jurassic World Evolution review

I’m not proud to admit that I’ve forced dinosaurs to fight to the death in Jurassic World Evolution. What could possibly lead me to do something so horrible to these wonders of science-fiction? Capitalism, of course. I was being paid, and I needed to buy an ugly fast food restaurant. Every ‘Dino Bite’ that my guests have snacked on has been stained with Velociraptor blood.…

Far Cry 5 fan map takes us back to Jurassic Park

I was not the biggest fan of Far Cry 5. I found it fun-ish if deeply to completely flawed and if I ever have to do a Pilotwings mission in a sandbox murdersim again I'll lose my mind. Also, I'm pretty tired of killing dogs and I'm equally tired of drug addiction as a trope to motivate bad guys in games. I have thoughts and…

Jurassic Park welcomed to Rocket League in next DLC

It's dino a go-go in the ludosphere lately as cross-medium opportunities hatch from the impending launch of the new talkie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Frontier's Jurassic World Evolution will have us manage a dinopark, and now Rocket League has declared its own allegiance to humanity's former steeds. New paid DLC later this month will add a Jurassic Park jeep as a sportscar, and yeah yeah…

Video: Watch dino fights and raptor escapes in Jurassic World Evolution

Remember the bit in Jurassic Park where John Hammond airlifts a live Ceratosaurus into the food court? No? That’s because it didn’t happen, which was a huge failing of imagination on Spielberg’s part. Hammond was all about show business, after all, and business doesn’t come showier than a dinosaur eating tourists as they exit a burger joint. Obviously, the makers of Jurassic World Evolution don’t…

Jurassic World Evolution shows off napping dinosaurs and an angry Tyrannosaurus

I enjoyed Jurassic World. There, I said it. Apparently I have bad taste, but gosh, I’m a sucker for anything involving dino shenanigans and Chris Pratt. If I had better taste, I’m still pretty certain I’d be looking forward to Jurassic World Evolution [official site], however. Frontier showed off the park management game at their Frontier Expo, letting us watch dinosaurs just hanging out. You…

Jurassic World Evolution is a park-builder from Planet Coaster devs

The next theme park management game from Planet Coaster studio Frontier Developments will focus on something even scarier than a triple corkscrew: dinosaurs. Last night Frontier announced Jurassic World Evolution [official site], which will put us in charge of the cinematic theme park franchise that surely should have been sued into oblivion by now. We'll get to build a park, bioengineer new dinosaurs, and watch…

Fan’s Folly: Jurassic Park: Aftermath

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…

Casual Terror: Jurassic Park Preview

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…

Dinosore: Telltale’s Jurassic Park Delayed

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…

Scale Models: Jurassic Park Dinosaur Trailer

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…

ROAR: First Jurassic Park Trailer Stomps In

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…

Jurassic Park Game Inspired By Heavy Rain

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…

Back To Back To The Future. Also, Dinos.

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…
