Telltale have been busily making fun point and click adventure games for a while now, with mostly good results. I didn’t play any of the new Sam and Max games, admittedly, but I tried the Strong Bad and Monkey Island episodes, and they seemed alright. Just nothing spectacular. Then recently, they’ve been trying some new game ideas such as Late Night At the Inventory, a simple but entertaining poker game. They also made the surprise jump to a more mainstream popular franchise in Back to the Future (the second episode of which is out today, in fact). Still, none of these have piped my interest as much as the prospect of a JURASSIC PARK GAME! YEEEAH!
A few details: it’s going to be a third person adventure, set during the timeline of the first movie, and apparantly follows some all-new characters. Dennis Nedry’s can of dino-embryo’s seems to be integral to the plot in some way or another, but thats pretty much all I can work out from the trailer. I’m just excited at the idea of DINOSAURS! I’m a huge fan of the Jurassic Park films and I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this game, which is not far away: April 2011 seems to be the planned release date. Check out the first trailer below.
