The Telltale Jeep 14 Nov, 2011 / 10 comments

A man going by the handle "boomerjinks" is going around various places on the internet, posting about how Telltale Games have mishandled his "Jurassic Park Jeep". Boomerjinks - who builds these Jurassic Park Jeep replicas himself - apparently lent Telltale one such replica for their booth at PAX. When it came back, it was damaged. A little bit of detective work apparently traces this error back to Telltale.

Boomerjinks posted more on the story, and some photographic evidence, in this Reddit thread. He posted much the same on NeoGAF.

Hmm! What do you think, people of Mojo?

Update: Telltale CCO and co-founder Kevin Bruner responds. With some class, I think.

    It's clumsy both on Boomerjinks and Telltales sides.
    Telltales should have provided better professional service to Boomerjinks, resolving the issue more promptly. The damage was estimated to be $2000, which is nothing compared to the costs of the game. On the other hand, Boomerjinks should not have started a Reddit thread, as this is detrimental to TT's publicity.
    To conclude: unfortunate clumsiness on both sides

    On a side note: do you think Boomerjinks has an official license to make money using the Jurassic Park trademark?

    The animations are fine.



    The latest video I saw they looked horrible. And what's with all the characters in telltale games having hair like a Ken doll? They could at least try to make them not look like they are plastic.

    It should've been a paper mache

    Looks like telltale handled that jeep the same way they handled the animations in jurassic park; like shit.
