When I was young, I really liked Jurassic Park
. Of the many, many JP toys I owned (I still have one of these
), I remember one T-shirt in particular. On the front was a sweet
raptor, and on the back was a map of Jurassic Park, including the locations of its dinosaurs. I spent weeks meticulously recreating said map, literally pixel by pixel, using Microsoft Paint – we didn't have Minecraft
back then, and if we had, our computer wouldn't have been able to run it.
And now Telltale goes and announces a Deluxe Edition
of Jurassic Park: The Game
for Mac and PC. The package is a veritable cornucopia of Jurassic Park memorabilia, including an InGen ID badge and field guide, a Jurassic Park staff patch and, best of all, a replica brochure from the movie including the map
. The package can be pre-ordered for $40.
But the point I'm trying to make is that someone at Telltale has either been tailing me for 18 years or, in a far more likely scenario, they found a Being John Malkovich
door into my head. Get out, Telltale. Get out of my head.
