If there is anything that Dr. Ian Malcolm has taught us, it’s that life finds a way. If there’s a 2nd thing that Dr. Ian Malcolm has taught us, it’s to never harvest dinosaur DNA from a mosquito in petrified amber and recreate an extinct species for fun and enjoyment. Unless, of course, it’s a video game. Then he’ll definitely help you. In a mega 90’s mashup of nostalgia, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be releasing a new video game designed by none other than the creators of RollerCoaster Tycoon and voiced by Jeff Goldblum.
Goldblum himself announced the game Jurassic World Evolution by Frontier Games. Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie (Laura Dern) were the lead archaeologists on the first Jurassic Park, but Malcolm was the adamantly opposed open-shirt sage who predicted the park’s destruction. He wasn’t ever much of a supporter of Hammond’s (Richard Attenborough) business practices, but maybe this time will be different.
Much like the game the RollerCoaster Tycoon game that you devoted much of your misspent youth to, Jurassic World Evolution is focused on building an amusement park from the ground up. Once it’s been built, you’ll get to fill it with man-eating dinosaurs for your guests to enjoy. Just make sure you design some really sturdy bathrooms.
There are a lot of things that could go wrong when you’re building a Jurassic Park, like being over budget and behind schedule. We are really hoping that construction falls behind the promised timeline and Malcolm urges, “Must go faster!”
The game will be available on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC this summer. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom featuring Jeff Goldblum premieres June 22.
