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?

PC System Requirements
OS: XP Service Pack 3 / Vista / Windows 7
Processor: 1.8 GHz Pentium 4 or equivalent
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 2 GB Space Free
Video Card: ATI or NVidia card w/ 256 MB RAM
DirectX®: Direct X 9.0c
Sound: Direct X 8.1 sound device

Mac System Requirements
OS: Mac OS X 10.6
Processor: 2.0 GHz Pentium or equivalent
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 2 GB Space Free
Video Card: ATI or NVidia card w/ 256 MB RAM
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.

  • @NuLegend1992 said: They haven't made that option available just yet, but eventually you will be able to order the DVD version if you've already bought the regular version of the game. It could be some time in the new year when that happens, but when it does, they will notify you.

    Are you sure about this? JP is the forst game which only delivers commentarys when ordering the deluxe edition and the commentaries will not be available to the buyers of the regular version so it could be that thios also applies to the DVD itself. The entry in the FAQ is quite old so it could be that it changed.

  • @MarkoH01 said: Are you sure about this? JP is the forst game which only delivers commentarys when ordering the deluxe edition and the commentaries will not be available to the buyers of the regular version so it could be that thios also applies to the DVD itself.

    The commentaries for JP are only available to deluxe buyers as digital downloads, and I know that because I myself have bought the deluxe pack. They're not going to be on the disc itself for either version, if that's what you meant to say.

    Yes, that is what I wanted to say. Thanks for the clearification.

  • I got a voucher for the game since I preordered the PC version last year. Is it possible to use it for the PS3 version? Or if I get the PC version, can I download that to my PS3? I ask because my PC died recently, but I still want to play the game.

    Hi Zeke, the voucher is only valid for the Telltale store (i.e. PC/Mac version), and that wouldn't work on your PS3.

    Ok, Thanks. Where do I input the code, the coupon space doesn't seem to accept it.

  • www.telltalegames.com/gifts try that.

    Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be true. Michael Parks just told me in my thread that there are at this moment no plans to release a regular DVD from the game.

    So JP will be the first game where you'll lonly get a DVD Version when buying the deluxe editions. Unfortunately they never mentioned this "little" change in release-politic before so I could have ordered the deluxe edition prior launch. I am really pissed right now!

  • do i really have to pay to have a full version...??????

  • Hey, I have the Xbox version and I can't get episode 2. I checked for scratches and found none. Can anyone help?
