Universal Interactive has announced that Blue Tongue Software will be the development house behind the new Jurassic Park game for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC. Jurassic Park will mix elements of traditional world-building games such as SimCity with mission-based elements. Players will ultimately have to create a great dinosaur park.
"Universal Interactive is extremely pleased with the way Blue Tongue's next-generation AI and animation engine is bringing realistic dinosaur behavior to life," said Jim Wilson, president of Universal Interactive. "The company's instantaneous terrain-mapping technology will make it possible for Jurassic Park fans to do what they have always dreamed of--build their very own dinosaur theme park."
Jurassic Park will feature full 3D jungles and dinosaurs, as well as 12 missions. Jurassic Park is scheduled for release in Q4 2002 on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC.
