Hold on to your butts: a Jurassic Park park-building tycoon game is coming to mobile at some point in "early" 2012. On the heels of the announcement that Telltale Games' take on the franchise has gone gold, Ludia Inc has revealed plans to release a title that revolves around the IP. According to Gamezebo, players will be tasked with building their own Isla Nublar and discovering new dino DNA to morph into dinosaurs.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to create a game that will allow fans of the film franchise to experience the thrills of managing their very own Jurassic Park,” the company said in a statement. This game won't have a connection with what Telltale is doing with its series later this November to our knowledge, but it is the result of license-holder Universal coming to the table again and striking a deal with a video game developer.

This is from Tap Jurassic, FYI.

Ludia has substantial experience with this social simulation game with dinosaurs thing -- its tap title, Tap Jurassic, released earlier this year and apparently wasn't too bad as far as social games go. We'll be excited to see what this one will be like. Please be good.

      Yeah, the iOS version of Theme Park is already looking like a disaster thanks to the freemium model.

    This game already exists as Jurassic Park 3 : Park Builder, released on Game Boy Advance back in 2001. Wasn't that bad.

      Don't forget Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, a fairly recent one for PC and Xbox. Was really good too, in fact I still play it.

    This looks absolutely awful.  Take the "Jurassic Park" crutch out of the title and it seriously looks like a bunch of 8 year olds placed random drawings together from a recent trip to a museum.

      OK you didn't read the article, fine, but couldn't you at least have read the text under the image you obviously looked at?! That's not the game the article is about...

      I have to ask though, when the image has nothing to do with the article why put it there? It'll only confuse people (as it obviously did)...

        Continue reading the paragraph under the text from the picture. That does actually have something to do with the article. That game is from the same developer. Which worries me, honestly.

        Ludia did not develop Tap Jurassic.  They are mostly known for gameshows like Family Feud & Friends and other games like Where's Waldo.

    OPERATION GENESIS 2!!!!!!!!!
    or something along the lines for upgraded systems; more dinos, more
    attractions(to drive kids out of their minds), more missions etc.

    or maybe a Jurassic Park free roam game would be good
