Jurassic Park licensees
Group DescriptionAll games based on, or inspired by, the events and ideas in Michael Crichton's 1990 fiction novel Jurassic Park. The novel tells the story of a fictional corporation that uses advances in cloning and other scientific techniques to bring dinosaurs back to life in the modern age, and the consequences of the company's subsequent decision to create a combination wildlife preserve and theme park for showcasing the dinos. Things go horribly wrong, and the employees and visitors stuck on the island must deal with loose dinosaurs reclaiming their natural habitat... and eating everyone they can get their claws on.
Games in this series generally mirror the major conflict of the novel - a lone human trapped in the dinosaur-infested jungles, trying to escape the island and return to civilization. Most games follow the visual style of Steven Spielberg's 1993 film adaptation. A few of the games explore the more thematic concepts, such as researching the dinosaurs and building up/managing the theme park.
