LE GO Jurassic World Brick Flick
FLego games have tackled almost every major sci- fi and fantasy property going with a wink and a smile. In fact, the only surprise in their next game covering all four Jurassic Park films is that it took them this long. “I think it’s something everyone’s been speaking about for quite a while now,” says Tim Wileman, Assistant Producer. “It was a no- brainer for us, and with the fourth film coming out it’s given us the opportunity to reignite the whole thing and relive all the original action as well. We couldn’t make a Jurassic World game without covering the other films. So it’s very exciting.” The game will feature 20 levels of gentle platforming, puzzle- solving and trinket collecting set on two huge hub islands – Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna – with each level focusing on a famous scene from the films. The game lifts dialogue straight from the big screen with 100 playable characters ( including Mr DNA!) and 20 different kinds of controllable dinosaur. Despite being created for kids first and foremost, TT Games hasn’t shied away from the scary side of the films. “We wanted to provide the most authentic Lego Jurassic World experience we possibly could,” says Wileman. “We don’t shy away from that tension and we’re not afraid to recreate the original atmosphere from the films. But by that same token we’re making kids’ games, which I think gets forgotten from time to time and we need to be mindful about balancing the tension with our own brand of humour, which is obviously very important to us.”
