It's hard to believe that it's been 18 years since 'Jurassic Park' made its theatrical debut, but if you've been hankering for a return to Isla Nublar, you won't be forced to pull out your DVD copy to get reacquainted with T-rex. Telltale Games will let you get in on the action firsthand with their new title, 'Jurassic Park: The Game.'
This isn't the first time a game developer has attempted to bring Spielberg's creatures to a game console near you, but it is the first to exist as a side story to the classic film. Players will take control of a female smuggler sent to the island to recover the Barbasol can of dino-embryos lost by Dennis Nedry. Of course, escaping the island with the embryos intact will be quite the challenge as players dodge T-Rex, the 'raptors and a new dinosaur species that poisons its victim with a slow acting neurotoxin before doing unspeakable things to them... Sounds delightful.
Telltale Games, who're also working on a video game version of AMC's hit series 'The Walking Dead,' have released a developer's diary with key creators on the project wherein they talk about what the film means to them, what they hope to accomplish in the game and how devoted they are keeping Spielberg's vision intact.
