Telltale to reveal something new prehistoric today? (now with official link/images!) 14 Jan, 2011 / 18 comments

Telltale have written on their facebook wall "Heads up! The February issue of Game Informer magazine has some exclusive new content from an upcoming project!"

First thoughts go to Jurassic Park. However somebody in the post's comments claim Game Informer say the title in question is a sequel, though no source has been provided. On Telltale's forums user StLouisRibs says that subscribers are allegedly due to receive their copies of the magazine today, so keep your eye out for the news / scans popping up soon.

Update: Alan at Telltale writes "So I know you guys have been waiting with baited breath to find out just what it is that's going to be in the February issue of Game Informer magazine so I'll spill the beans right now - it's the first look at Jurassic Park.

The two page preview features some exciting in-game screenshots and some insight on what to expect on our upcoming title! It should be hitting subscribers' mailboxes soon!"


Update by Zaarin: You can check out a scan over here by reader Jannar85.

Update by JP: Game Informer has the story online now, so you can get a better look at those images (including some not included in the print article).

    I guess that means just about everyone has voted...

    Although I consider it the weakest entry in an extremely strong catalog, I really like The Dig as well, but mostly for the art, the music, the tone, and everything else that contributed to that game's wonderfully eerie and effective atmosphere. I think it's mainly that quality that made The Dig so memorable, and I think it can be abstracted and applied fittingly to Jurassic Park, which is in its core premise pretty similar. (A small band of heavily flawed humans isolated in an exotic environment and beset by preternatural dangers.)

    I definitely meant the comparison to The Dig in a positive light, at least as far as the hopes I'm projecting onto Telltale's JP game.

    I misunderstood your comment then, sorry about that. I wouldn't consider it the weakest though, that would be Loom in my book.

    I agree with your comparison then ;)

    Really? I quite liked The Dig and have had a soft spot for it. Only that fossil puzzle was terrible.

    For some reason I'm seeing this as being Telltale's The Dig, except hopefully with good dialog and not terrible puzzles.

    So, it'll be stuck in development hell for 4 years and go through 3 project leads?



    TOO SOON.

    Good call, there. I'd be one happy clam if that turned out to be the case.

    These screenshots are pretty impressive! I like that the "Telltale character model" is sort of extinct now :)

    Wow, looks pretty damn good! I particularly like the idea of it being a sequel to just the first film. Now we'll just have to see how it plays!

    My hero!

    It looks like TT hit the nail right on its head with this one; the graphics look pretty remarkable, and the tone sounds just about right.

    Judging by TTG's tweet I think I'd go with Jurassic Park too, internet rumors aside.
