Hold On To Your Butts: Episodic Jurassic Park Games Are Coming

Jurassic ParkThere are few things that can elicit fanboy feelings of delight from me. For the most part, I try to keep a level head when it comes to gaming news, but I seriously can’t help myself with this one, as it concerns Jurassic Park. I might throw up a little from excitement. Jurassic Park is probably in my top 10 favorite films of all time. That’s why I freaked when I read the news over at Game Informer tonight that the franchise is seeing a re-emergence in video game form sometime in the near future.

And not only will we be seeing a new video game, we’ll actually be getting multiple titles released in an episodic format. The maestros behind this will be none other than Telltale Games, the same folks that have been creating Sam and Max for years, along with the recently revived Tales of Monkey Island. While there are few details known about this, it seems like this could be a match made in heaven, and I would love playing an old school adventure game (or several) in the world of Jurassic Park.

So what do you guys think of this? By the way, I could have used any number of quotes in the title, and ran through a dozen or so before I settled on “Hold on to your butts”. I suppose I will have to use other memorable quotes in future updates.

Update: Apparently Telltale also nabbed the rights to Back to the Future games. What magic did these guys do to land these awesome IPs?

  1. Ah, Jurassic Park. Fond memories of playing as the raptor in the old Genesis game and scrounging around the island endlessly for odds and ends to get to the next section of the game on the Sega CD version. On second thought, maybe my memories of the Sega CD version aren’t quite so fond.

    Great choice on the quote, by the way. Somehow I always forget that Samuel L. Jackson was in the movie and every time I watch it I end up exclaiming, “Oh, my god! I forgot Sammy L. is in this movie!”

    For some reason, my wife really dislikes Jurassic Park. She thinks it’s dumb, predictable, and boring. Then again, she wasn’t a 13 year old dinosaur fanatic when the movie came out so I guess she came to it from a different perspective than I did.


  2. I think Hold On To You Butts perfectly describes the ability of success these games have. Good luck to them, I grew up loving Jurassic Park.

  3. Just updated the story: Telltale also has the rights to do some BTTF games!

    Two great properties, can’t wait to see what comes out of this.

  4. hahaha, I love Samuel Jackson’s “Hold onto your butts.” line. It’s in a close second to to “Mothahfuckah!”

    Anyway, this sounds pretty cool, even though I’m not much of a point-and-click adventure fan. Still not a bad idea though.
