Jurassic Park: The Game, Preview
Back in 1993 the world got a glimpse of man and dinosaurs coexisting. Jurassic Park showed just how brutal it could be to survive a world with a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, or even a Gallimimus. However, the first movie left a big story question that the other two sequels failed to answer. What happened to the shaving cream can filled with “dino-DNA” Dennis Nedry lost when he was killed by a Dilophosaurus?
For almost twenty years, the continuing story of the can and its valuable cargo has never been told.
The visionary company that has brought us the Sam & Max tales and Back to the Future: The Game is about to answer all the questions about that lost can. Known for the classic “point and click” gameplay style, Telltale is enhancing this control scheme to fit the action Jurassic Park: The Game demands. Telltale implemented a “picture-in-picture scene navigation” in which the players can change the camera view of the different parts of the scene on the fly.The players are then allowed to explore the scene to uncover interactive points.
In addition, the game has a new “dialogue on demand” system that allows players to interact with other characters of the game whenever they want.
Expect the numerous exploration, challenges, and puzzle solving opportunities that make a Telltale game, but with the Jurassic Park action we love. Telltale is striving to immerse players in the world of Jurassic Park down to every detail.
Remember the touch screen interactive map in the tour jeep? Telltale has made videos of the type of information given if you would touch a particular dinosaur icon on the tour.
Be on the lookout for the game review.
Telltale is set to release Jurassic Park: The Game on the PC, MAC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on November 15, 2011. Please visit the official website for more information.
