Telltale's upcoming Jurassic Park game taking inspiration from Heavy Rain

Telltale Game's executive director Kevin Boyle told Game Informer that the company's upcoming Jurassic Park series of episodic games would use gameplay elements similar to those found in Heavy Rain.

Apparently Universal gave the license to the company because they didn't want to see another Jurassic Park FPS. Telltale, of course, is known for its adventure games. Like Heavy Rain, Jurassic Park's gameplay will be divided between slower-paced exploratory sequences and tense action sequences controlled by quick-time events.

The game takes place immediately after the first film, but story details beyond that are pretty scarce. Telltale's currently in the midst of a season of games based on another Universal franchise, Back to the Future.

    I am fine if they take the game play idea from the game, but I just hope they don't take the crappy voice acting that Heavy Rain had. I can hear it now if they do use horrible voice acting. A Raptor killed my son in a wasteland Roman.

    When Heavy Rain was coming/came out, I was convinced the adventure game genre would be revolutionized by their gameplay mechanic. Although the "revolution" has yet to happen, I'm glad other people (AKA the only other adventure game developer) is trying the same stuff, and hopefully bettering it.

    Let's hope there's no dinosaur sex scene, then.

    Telltale: Your work on this game must go faster, must go faster.

    @ celtics, more like ride a side-car attached to a T-Rex with a rapid fire grenade launcher/rifle and have a grand-ass time hunting.

    As long as at the end you get to mount a T Rex armed with a rapid fire grenade launcher and kill every godforsaken thing on the island, i am getting this.

    The twist is the veloceraptor was actually trying to stop the sociopath mass child murderer

    Telltale did a great job with Back To The Future (at least, with Episode 1). I really can't wait to see what they do with Jurassic Park :D

    My man-crush on Telltale is growing more potent with each passing day.
