Universal Interactive has announced Jurassic Park: Project Genesis, its upcoming world-building game based on the blockbuster Jurassic Park films. The game will let players design, build, and manage their own dinosaur theme park, or they can battle their way through 12 missions that test their skills against the powers of nature and some of its most dangerous creatures.
"The Jurassic Park franchise lends itself particularly well to the world-building genre of games," said Jim Wilson, president of Universal Interactive. "Jurassic Park: Project Genesis transforms a highly recognized movie property into a style of gaming that allows players to re-create the very things about Jurassic Park they always loved to see on the big screen. This is the game that Jurassic Park fans have long been waiting for."
Jurassic Park: Project Genesis is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2002.
