Jurassic Park is a cornerstone of every sci-fi fandom. One of the first book and movie franchises of this genre that many of us stumbled across, it helped to open the eyes of millions of people around the world to the pure joy of flights of fancy.
One of the beautiful things about it is that it provides so much source material for content creators to work with. It might have originally come from the brilliant mind of Michael Crichton, but so many people have added their mark since, from Stephen Spielberg through to Colin Trevorrow.
The gaming industry, too, has repeatedly used it as a source of inspiration for their works. Should you ever feel like experiencing it in a different and more immersive way, here are three of their best offerings for you to check out.
Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis (2003)
A game that gives you the chance to build and operate your own theme park seems like the perfect complement for those who would like to journey down the rabbit hole and live the Jurassic Park experience for themselves, and Operation Genesis does not disappoint. Inspired by games like Zoo Tycoon, it took an already popular concept, and then added dinosaurs into the mix – ones with the ability to break out of their enclosures and devour anyone who happened to stumble into their path. A fan favourite, and popular choice for modding even a decade and a half after its release, it’s fair to say that it ended up a major hit.
Jurassic World (2017)
The gambling industry is most often associated with traditional table games, such as poker, blackjack, and baccarat. There are dozens of specially dedicated directory sites out there to share the various options that are available, with live casino proving especially popular - specifically, Double Ball Roulette doubles the excitement, as CasinoGames.ca posits. But did you know the sector could also hold some appeal for sci-fi fans? Based on the Hollywood blockbuster whose name it shares, a Jurassic World slot game is featured on sites like Rizk. Offering incredible visual animations and an awesome bonus mode, it’s unsurprisingly popular amongst those who enjoy a flutter, especially if they like dinosaurs too.
Jurassic World Evolution (2018)
For those who like their games modern and high tech, Jurassic World Evolution is sure to be a hit. Released just last year, this latest offering is one of the best to date, and promises hours of enjoyment for those who purchase it. Revolving around the concept of building your own park, it has some of the most fantastic graphics around, and its dinosaurs are superbly realistic. The aim of the game is simple: create the park of your dreams, have fun cloning some dinosaurs, and do your level best to keep your unwitting guests safe. This is one of those games you could play forever without ever growing bored.
