Telltale Creating Episodic Jurassic Park Game

As revealed in the new July issue of Game Informer, Telltale Games, the developer behind the recent Sam & Max and Tales of Monkey Island revivals, will be creating a new series of episodic games based on the Jurassic Park license.

Telltale has a new deal with NBC Universal to create games based on their intellectual properties. The first game under the deal will be a full "season" using the Jurassic Park license. It's unclear how many episodes that will entail, but previous Telltale seasons have lasted between four and six episodes, with one episode released every month.

Telltale CEO Dan Connors described the project: "For Jurassic Park, we will leverage Telltale's expertise in storytelling and game design to deliver on the tension and drama of the series creating the ultimate cinematic adventure."

The first episode of the new Jurassic Park game is planned to launch later this year. Hopefully we'll see more about this exciting project next week at E3.
