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

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.

  • @Alan Johnson said: As long as you purchase the entire season of Jurassic Park, you'll be eligible for the free collector's DVD. It's not a pre-order only thing, but the Insider Forum is.

    Thanks a lot, Alan! :)

  • @evolution_rex said: What is the collector's DVD?

    It contains all five episodes of the game and bonus features.

  • @Bombillazo said: How many episodes in total?

    5. This information is visible in the trailer on the official game site

    @Bombillazo said: What is the collector's DVD?

    At the end of the season (plus a few months), a DVD is made available that contains all 5 episodes of the game (for PC & Mac), plus bonus features (usually concept art, trailers, and other things). You can place an order to have it posted to you, and if you've already bought the season (pre-order or not) you only have to pay for postage - the DVD itself is free.

    Have a look in the store at the DVDs available for all three Sam & Max seasons, SBCG4AP and Tales of Monkey Island for good examples of the Collector's DVDs.

  • I would like to clarify a bit further on the DVD issue.

    First, the DVD does not ship automatically at the end of the season. When the DVD becomes available, you'll have to come back here, make sure you're logged into your Telltale account, then add the DVD to your cart in the store. The price of the DVD will come up as $0, and you'll only have to pay for shipping at checkout.

    Second, the DVD usually becomes available for pre-order quite a while before it's actually ready to ship, in order to allow Telltale to gauge numbers for manufacturing purposes. So fair warning, if you order the DVD as soon as it's in the store, you'll still probably be waiting a while for it while Telltale finishes having the discs manufactured and processed for shipping and everything. Tales of Monkey Island took three months from the time I pre-ordered the disc on the first day of pre-orders to the time it left their warehouse. Sam & Max season 3 took two months. So I want to warn you guys about this up front to reduce the complaints later on, like we've seen in the past when people didn't understand the system.
