NAME: Jurassic Life
AUTHOR: The BUTANe mod crew.
DESCRIPTION: This mod for Half Life 2 will finally make a proper Jurassic Park video game a reality. For this FPS, the team has carefully recreated every detail from the movie, from the visitor center, to the cars and -of course- the dinosaurs. Your character is Robert Muldoon, in charge of the safety of the park. You will be able to play in your favorite scenes from the movie (the kitchen, duh) in a highly stressful environnement. BUTANe is still looking for an additional developer and modeler to give them a hands on the project so if you have the right skills, head over to Mod DB to apply.
AMUSEMENT RATE: Twenty years after the release of the first movie, I still have goose bumps when I hear John Williams’ music. I would have been ecstatic if this game existed back in 1993 but I’m still pretty excited about it today. The natural translation of Jurassic Park into a game is obviously a FPS and not an adventure game like the 2010 Jurassic Park: The Game. I guess the lack of pressure from Universal officials to make the game family friendly gave the mod crew a lot more freedom than what the guys from Telltale ever had. The question of the release of the mod is still up in the air as Jurassic Life is a work on progress that has started over a year ago. Be patient!
