Exploring Jurassic World
One thing we all wished after watching Jurassic World was for the ability to spend a bit more time in the theme park before it was demolished. The film gave us a great overview, but didn't spend enough time in the nooks and crannies - as expected. Now, we have the ability to relive that experience from a first person perspective in Jurassic Explorer!
This brand new fan created gaming experience gives you the ability to walk around the park and explore it's full glory. From Main Street, to the Innovation Center, and free rides in the Gyrosphere, Jurassic Explorer will set the precedent for the full park experience. Around each corner you'll find a new Easter Egg from the film or fan inclusion in the project. Creator Michael Pearce has taken time to include fan artwork and voice-overs, allowing the community to be part of something immersive.
This project has fruitfully grown since the Jurassic World 3D Project and now Jurassic Explorer supports better graphics, higher detail and even more film accuracy than before. Within this platform, we get to see more detail from the IMAX theater, the Dave & Buster's Arcade, the Spinosaurus fossil remains on Main Street, and the screen accurate John Hammond statue. The creators have taken their time to sift through behind the scenes footage, promo material, physical attractions like Jurassic World: The Exhibition and more to give the unseen corners of the park more credibility.
One of the prominent features of this game will surely be the Tyrannosaurus Rex Kingdom. When the Rex is fully realized, you'll be able to see her stalk her pray inside the Kingdom's smokey forest. Just like in the film, you'll enter the log viewing platform, hear the familiar voice-over announcing Rexy's presence and witness the tyrant lizard in incredible detail. In Jurassic World, the Tyrannosaurus Rex Kingdom was one of many areas we saw for a brief time, but here, in Jurassic Explorer, you'll be able to experience it like any guest in the park.
Another question that has popped up regarding Jurassic Explorer is the play-ability on our personal computers. During the Jurassic World 3D Project phase, many had issues running the game fully on their home systems, but as creator Michael Pearce reassures, that should be a thing of the past. After using the correct tools to build the game this time around, it should be able to run more smoothly than prior incarnations. After re-building the game from the ground up in new 3D modeling software, Jurassic Explorer should work like any other game on your PC or Mac.
Be sure to listen to creator Michael Pearce discuss Jurassic Explorer on our podcast and hear all about my time recording voice-over for the game! We'll update you as soon as the game is available for download!
