Constructive Criticism...

posted by jmine83 on - last edited - Viewed by 681 users

Just thought I would quickly share some constructive criticism to the developers. Please refer to the enclosed picture I have prepared that explains my suggestions in question. All around, I'm sure it will be a remarkable and excellent game of course, but when it comes to certain details as the enclosed picture explains, I just have to scratch my head and ask "why" sometimes developers make the decisions they do and overlook details. I do sympathize though. This is a very big project I'm sure and your doing a wonderful job.

Considering, however, that the Nedry jeep detail thread got a positive response from Mark Darin of Telltale Games, it is very encouraging and rewarding to the fanatics of Jurassic Park that we can give our feedback and actually make some contributions into the design and content of the game. So thank you Telltale developers for listening.

  • Woah! Awesome! Where'd you find these assets to begin with? lol

  • Actually, I made them :) I presume you mean the attached sign and badge graphics to the right of the screenshots of course.

    I have a "huge" database of Jurassic Park material and content that I developed over the course of several years since the start of the JP franchise. I've actually made some very famous contributions to the Jurassic Park fan community that mainly includes very detailed maps of the JP islands. I made many maps that precisely details the size, topography, and locales of the events of the JP films. I have found that most all the content I've developed is being hosted on JP-Legacy currently including the Nublar and Sorna maps that I made. What you see publicly on the Internet, however, is only a "small percentage" of projects that I released and I have many more that I have never publicly released.

    So I have tons of vector-graphic Jurassic Park graphic files created in Illustrator that is consistent with the marketing style and such with each of the three JP movies.

    If your developers are interested, I am willing to share all the JP content I have free-of-charge, no strings attached.

  • I SAW THOSE MAPS! You did an amazing job. Thank you. It's very refreshing to locate everything. I actually used a map on Operation Genesis to create a park! thanks :D

  • Wow! That is amazing jmine. I'll pass that on to the team.

  • Thanks. I'll take a look at the ID badges.

  • The team is aware and looking for ways to incorporate jmine's input! So rad!

  • Stuff like this thread is why Telltale is seriously my favorite developer.

    If a Jurassic Park game was being done by anybody else, and someone pointed out an (admittedly minor) inaccuracy to the source material, the developers would probably go "Whatever, it's just a movie" to themselves without even giving a real response. But you guys went "Whoops, we made a mistake" and are now making the effort to fix it.

    I know there's been a lot of negativity towards Telltale on the forums lately, but it's little things like this that remind us why you're great. :D

  • I went back and watched the movie and SAW the keycard on Arnold and Nedry. Good observation! :)

    Glad to see my Jeep thread helped you step up with your expertise, it's nice to see another JP fanatic around.

    Like I mentioned in the other thread, the more media we have access to, the more we can catch before the game ships.

    I'll be paying much more attention now...

    Thanks for listening Telltale, it's absolutely a great feeling to know when someone is listening. Your going up there with the best.

    Like I said in the other post... Go ahead and keep posting these little details and inaccuracies when you see them. We try to keep track of everything, but occasionally some things may slip through the cracks. We appreciate the help when you guys are keeping and eye out!
