Telltale have said that the events taking place in their upcoming Jurassic Park title will overlap with the first movie and extend “beyond them, to the days and nights immediately following the collapse of the park.”
Designer and writer, Joe Pinney, said that the story was given the green-light by Universal, allowing the developer to “follow the new story to its natural conclusions.”
“We’re fans like they are, and we all really want the new stuff to be grounded in the events, locations, and tone of the first film, so we’re all on the same page there,” he said. “It helps that the folks at Universal are terrific collaborators, and gamers to boot. One of our main characters had a bit part in the first film, and we’ll learn a lot more about him. We’ll have some nods to and mentions of the film characters. Other than that, it’s a new cast–plus, of course, the dinosaurs return. It’s a new blend of exploration, action, and adventure, very cinematic and intuitive, which we think really suits the story. We’re hoping to hook not only fans of Jurassic Park, but anyone who enjoys an exciting adventure.”
The game is set for an April launch on PC and Mac.
