Jurassic Park Unofficial FAQ (Last Updated: September 2, 2014)

Note that all information in this FAQ is compiled by former community moderator Icedhope and community moderators Jennifer and Vainamoinen. We check our facts thoroughly and have a lot of Telltale experience on our backs, but this is not an 'official' source, we're just volunteers!

(1) What is Jurassic Park: The Game?
Jurassic Park: The Game is an episodic game that takes place during the events of the first film, and deals with what happened to the Barbasol can of dinosaur embryos that Nedry stole from the park.

(2) Were the creators of Jurassic Park involved in the game?
Telltale worked with Universal Studios to make sure the game stayed true to the greater universe of Jurassic Park.

(3) What is gameplay like?
This game was released before the cinematic story games such as The Walking Dead, so the gameplay doesn't consist of choices and consequences (minus one small choice at the end of the final episode). The gameplay mostly consists of quick time events, with a few areas of casual exploration in between.

(4) For which platforms is Jurassic Park: The Game available?
Jurassic Park: The Game is available for PC and Mac, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

(5) How much does Jurassic Park: The Game cost?
The entire season can be purchased for PC and Mac for $30 on Steam and at the Telltale store. The prices for other platforms vary.

(6) I used my code from the Jurassic Part Trilogy set for a free episode. Where is it?
You can download this by logging into the site and clicking the My Games link from the pull down menu in the top-right.

(7) How many episodes are there in Jurassic Park: The Game?
There are four episodes. The episode titles are The Intruder, The Calvary, The Depths, and The Survivors.

(8) What are the System Requirements for the PC/Mac?

Processor: 1.8 GHz Pentium 4 or equivalent
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 2 GB Space Free

Additional: Not recommended for MAC Minis or early-generation MacBooks

(9) For which languages are the game available?
There are English and German voice options with English, German and French subtitles.

(10) Can I play Jurassic Park with a gamepad?
Definitely! You'll be given the option to choose between gamepad and keyboard/mouse when you start the game. If you wish to switch control schemes, you will need to restart the game.

(11) Hey, why can't I save my game? What's going on? There's no option on the main menu.
Don't worry - the game is saving automatically at set checkpoints. If you want to replay a section later, you can choose it from the Scenarios list on the main menu. When you load your game, you will be taken to the latest checkpoint you've reached.

(12) Episodes 2-4 aren't available on the main menu. I bought the game. What's the deal?
You will need to complete Episode 1 before you're able to start Episode 2. Then you'll need to proceed through all of Episode 2 before Episode 3 will unlock, and so on.

(13) Will Jurassic Park: The Game be ported to other platforms?
This is unlikely as Jurassic Park: The Game is several years old now and Telltale mainly only ports their newer games to other platforms.

(14) Is there a bonus/free collector's DVD version for Jurassic Park: The Game available from the Telltale store?
There was, but unfortunately the collector's DVD is now out of print.

(15) Is there a soundtrack CD available?
No soundtrack CD was ever produced for Jurassic Park: The Game, however at one time, Telltale offered downloads of the soundtrack to people who purchased the deluxe version (but this option is no longer available). Since Telltale has mostly moved on from physical merchandise, it seems unlikely that a soundtrack CD will be released in the future.

(16) What about other merchandise?
T-shirts and posters were available in the Telltale store, however these have been discontinued as Telltale has mostly moved on from physical merchandise.

    Pretty much guaranteed, the mouse would be far too imprecise for such a task.
    "Fahrenheit" gave you the option to use mouse movenment for the QTEs.
  • I finally made up my mind and preordered the game. But now is it time to play the waiting game? I love jurassic park. And BTTF. But i cant get both. So i chose this game. Can you give us any form of beta to this game? Or do i have to wait till april to get my hands on some JP action.

    There will probably be no, Demo of the game until it's released...so looks like you'll have to play the waiting game.
  • Now you wait till it's released so you can play it.
  • Watch all three movies back to back repeatedly until the game is released.

    Haha, yeah, thats what if been doing for the last coupla days and its still enjoyable, im just waiting to actually see a Triceratops standing up in the first movie for once, and I wanna see these new dinos!

    I definetaly think that Telltale should release a demo this month of the game since they are trying so many new things with this game in particular. I played the game demo at GDC in SFO, and I wouldnt complain if they just released this section with a fixed Rex roar, I would just play it over and over. Please Telltale, give us a demo or something more very soon, the 3 question interviews are cool, how about more of those or some more screenshots for now? Thanks!
  • Has Telltale ever released demos of their games? (Serious question, not being sarcastic)

    For 360, and their PS3 games, there are Demos...and I think tales had a demo.

    Yes, but never before the actual game was released (IIRC).
