A Little Dino-Action from Jurassic Park: The Game
It’s hard to imagine why a developer would want to adopt a 20 year old franchise (that isn’t Star Wars/Trek) to create a game out of. Then again, Jurassic Park is no slouch in the epic-blockbuster universe. Not to mention there’s been no shortage of rumors about yet another sequel.
TellTale games, purveyors of such excellent point-and-click adventure titles as the new Monkey Island and Back to the Future is readying a Fall 2011 release for Jurassic Park: The Game for Mac, PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms simultaneously. Some may remember that the title was set to launch in April of this year but was delayed in order to implement new game mechanics and a new story. Consumers who preordered were issued refunds AND a free game of their choice. Pretty ballsy move, but demonstrated a clear care for their customers.
So here we are, starting up September and the hype has started again. Today’s entertainment is The Jurassic Park: The Game Action Montage. The power is dead, the gates are down and the lizards are hungry.
