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. Sorry, but at this time, gamepad support is not available on the Mac.

(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.

    Will there be the manual activation of the game. Like going on the phone to get it activated instead of having internet. Because that would solve my problems indefinitely.;)

    Just to clarify this issue: There is no workaround to get the downloaded PC/Mac game to work without an internet connection. BUT if you bought the Deluxe Edition, you will also be sent the DVD version if you pay P&P (and if you're in the US, you should receive it before X-mas). In all games past, this DVD was completely standalone and required no online activation.

    However, if the game is bought with your account, there might be a slight legal problem with giving the DVD copy to a friend. If it comes to this, better ask support whether that would be OK.

    If you haven't bought the Deluxe Edition yet, it IS still in store (but more expensive than before release). I don't know for how long it will still be available, so I'm unsure if I really should advise you to wait until Thanksgiving. In the last years, TTG often had a sale that time of year.

  • REALLLLY!!!:D:D:D


    Thank you for your reply. So you are saying that if i buy the deluxe edition i dont have to activate it over the internet?
    If thats true i'll buy it right now:eek:

    I'm sure that there won't be online activation for the standalone DVD, as that would be a completely new thing for TTG to do. But I'm just a voluntary forum moderator - I don't know that officially, it's all based on the experience of previous years!!

    Maybe you could wait just a little longer, until this is officially confirmed somehow. The DVDs are not yet printed anyway, they're probably waiting until the very last moment to get them out just in time for X-mas. But please also make sure your friend has a computer that is good enough for the game! ;)

  • Oh thank you soo much:D

    You have been the most information to me for about 2 days.

    I have another question, If it turns out that i do need internet to activate can i return the games back to telltale?

    Got my confirmation now. ;)
    The DVD version definitely doesn't need online activation. Go ahead - but please remember that this version will only arrive just in time for X-mas, not earlier!

  • THANK YOU SOO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!!!:D

    Now i'm definetly going to buy this.


    I have one last question for you though. Will the pc version of back to the future and jurassic park the game be retailed in stores? If not then i'll buy this deluxe pack. Again thanks for all of your help!!!:cool:

  • So, for those of us who ordered the Deluxe Edition how do we download the digital soundtrack? Or did we download it when downloaded the game and I just can't find the files because I'm blind?

    Edit: lol, never mind. The links are at the bottom of the download page.

    "Real" PC retail versions of Telltale's games are far and few. Mostly, translated retail versions pop up after months or even years in some foreign countries. You can be sure however that even if there might be a retail version in stores someday, it will definitely not be in the next months because nothing is announced right now.

  • Thanks Vainamoinen for answering all of my questions!:D
    YOU'RE THE BEST!!!;)

    I'll be probably buying the double deluxe edition with all the games.

    Again thanks for your help.:D:p:D
