Remember Peter Jacksons King Kong Game ???

posted by Sadonicus on - last edited - Viewed by 594 users

Recently I thought about the official game to Peter Jacksons King Kong.

I especially remember the Encounters as a human with the T-Rex (or V-rex :))wich where so well designed. The T-Rex was always the ultimate threat, a symbol for fear, and in that game it was so intense fleeing, hiding and distracting the invincible monster. But I couldnt help but thinking how much better this would be in a Jurassic Park-Game.

Is there any chance that there will be similar passages in telltales game? Playing some parts of the game in first person with this kind of survival-gameplay? Would fit to the scenario and I think first person is the only way of delivering the feel of this kind of scenes adequatly. Also it would be a nice reminiscense to the old SNES-Game, wich had first person-passages as well. Just dont know if their engine would allow something like this.

Some vids of what I'm talking about:

  • Ah, yes! The moments playing as a human and being attacked by the Rex was so damn scary the first times I played it. The T-Rex coming slowly towards you, and the guys that never finished to open the gate! Such a great level.

    I definetly agree that something like that should be featured on the game.

  • You do realize Telltale develops point-and-click adventure games, right?

    I mean, I suppose making a first-person game in the Telltale Tool is possible (see the intro to Poker Night at the Inventory. Even if you weren't actually playing, it had you walking through an area in first-person, and it felt really good), but trying to force them to do a completely different genre really wouldn't be a good idea.

  • I agree that the King Kong game was fun. I liked the levels with the T-rex (or V-Rex as it's really called in the King Kong universe).

    But yeah, Telltale doesn't make games like that. It's probably going to be a third person puzzle solving game with suspense added in. Maybe like the original resident evil games?

    Why wouldnt Telltale be allowed to expand their gamestyle? I know they thrive in adventure games. But that doesnt mean they can't try something new at some point.

  • Didnt they already say it wont be point & click and the will do something they havent made before? If they make a third-person game with suspense or stealth in it, why is it impossible to make some levels in first person?

    Yeah, they've said that JP is going to be a departure from their usual style. While I imagine that a lot of adventure elements will be present, some new stuff will be added, like first person view for example. This is highly probable as the Raptor animation we saw some time ago attacked the player on first person.

    I imagine the game will be similar in style to Trespasser, which was basically an action game with adventure elements...

    Man, I really hope that you are right!

    Oh man Trespasser that brings back memories I don't care what the critics said about that game I loved it and still do.

    Me too! Funny how a game that received generally poor critics can have such a big fanbase after all that years! There must be something beyond the usual criteria for games that the game haves

  • I love trespasser as well, I just recently purchased it and love it. despite its bugs and the terrible AI.... I love hearing John Hammonds dialogue through the game
