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.

  • No, that's not called a scam, sorry. The Mac client will be available later today. On the 15'th, which is the official release date. We'll have it on our servers as soon as possible, and I apologize for the delay.

  • @Icedhope said: Q: What about merchandise, and my free DVD for the PC/Mac version?
    A: We have t-shirts and posters available in our store. You will be able to purchase a Collector's DVD if you've purchased the digital edition for the PC/Mac. We do not currently have an ETA on when this disc will be available.

    The question is about a "free DVD" but the answer says digital edition buyers will be able to "purchase" a DVD. Could you clarify, actually answer the question as to whether or not digital edition buyers get a free (not including shipping) DVD as has been the case with previous TTG series?

    @Icedhope said: Current known issues:

    Gamepads are not currently supported in the Mac client. However, upon launching the game, you will still be asked to choose between gamepad and mouse/keyboard. Please make sure you choose the mouse/keyboard option. This will be fixed soon.

    How exactly will this be "fixed"? Support for gamepads will be added? Or the interface screen that offers a choice will be eliminated?

  • Clarified that entry in the FAQ. It's free, but you need to pay the shipping cost, which is how we've always done it.

    For now, the control prompt will be removed from the Mac version. I don't have an ETA and when that will be patched yet.

    Nah, sorry. That was the excuse before release. Release occurred when the Mac version went up for sale. Sale went through just fine! Nice and swift.

    No product available and no timeframe, other than "later."

    Not good.

    But I accept your apology.

  • It finishes downloading but every time I go to open the folder it says the file is invalid. I'm using a proxy to get past the DormNet filter is that the reason why?

  • :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I have been waiting all day for this game!
    This is my first experience with telltale, and it is not good.
    Any other game I have ever bought on release day,
    has been released at the start of the release day!
    Why was is about 4:00 (11:00 in the UK) before it was released?

    The wait irritated me,
    but I am now enraged to find that after buying it,
    I still can not play it as I have a MAC!!!

    This release is shambolic!

    You may be good game designers and developers,
    but you really need to learn how to become a game publisher.

  • @Michael Parks said: Clarified that entry in the FAQ. It's free, but you need to pay the shipping cost, which is how we've always done it.

    Thanks. Yes, I understand free does not include shipping. Doesn't matter though...

    @Michael Parks said: For now, the control prompt will be removed from the Mac version. I don't have an ETA and when that will be patched yet.

    No Mac gamepad support = no purchase. Might get it for XBox, though.

  • @FPug said: It finishes downloading but every time I go to open the folder it says the file is invalid. I'm using a proxy to get past the DormNet filter is that the reason why?

    Actually, it probably isn't finishing. The archive is about 2.6GB in size, so if the file you have is nowhere near that size, then whatever you're using to download it is getting pissed off and terminating the download.

  • Hello.

    I apologise if this has been covered, and I do remember reading somewhere back at the beginning of the year, but I would like someone to confirm.

    At home I use a MacBook Pro, and away from home I use my Windows Laptop. Can I download both the Mac version and the Windows version to play on my machines, or am I only allowed to download and play one version?

  • You can download either version as many times as you'd like.
