Meet it's spiritual successor! A new park creator/sim game will be coming out 15 years after the original OG back in 2003.

For those that don't know, JP:OG was created based on the success of the movie franchise, and they took the idea of a theme park creator and meshed that with dinosaurs. The result = a cult hit. Not a financial or critical success, but a game that players threw thousands of hours into.

On PC, it has a community that modded their version of the game infinitely. Modders are STILL modding the game with new dinosaurs, attractions, improved graphics, more missions etc. So the announcement is a welcome surprise to people who enjoyed the original.


Releases summer 2018 to coincide with the next JP movie.

I hope that halfway through, the park fails, the dinos escape, and the game radically changes

Operation Genesis had the ability to let that happen... if you were an asshole of a park manager. They had hurricanes in the game, and if you didn't build strong enough fences or shelters for guests, the hurricane could tear apart the park.

They also had missions (outside of the sim), where things go wrong in the park, and it's up to you to fix them. Such as raptors escaping, T-Rex going on a rampage etc. You would be in the helicopter trying to shoot the rampaging dinos. Plus a photography mode where you take pics of them, and try to get to safety.

Then there was a non-park mode, where you build a landscape and just fill it with dinos without enclosures. Basically an untouched wild land where the AI dinos can roam, eat each other, fight and reproduce.

Official release date, June 12th. It leaked a few weeks ago, but this is the confirmation of the leak



Other details mentioned during a media day with the game:

- 30 dinosaurs at release, more coming with DLC..... a leak showed 40 slots + Hybrid genome (so rumors are we can splice dino DNA to create 10 unique dinosaurs)
- Includes the usual dinos (T-Rex, Brachiosaurs, Triceratops) and dinosaurs that have not been in the books or movies (c'mon Ultrasaurus and Argentinosaurus!)
- Will include DNA spliced dinos and dinos not seen yet in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom
- You're in charge of 5 islands this time around.... not 1, but all Cinco Muertes from the book
- Jeff Goldblum is the main narrator as Ian Malcolm
- The parks can have a total of over 150 dinosaurs simultaneously in the game
