Developer: Veenix

Some info about the game:
Yes indeed! I have started creating a fan Jurassic Park game which will offcourse be completely free. I hope to finish this entire project and not let it get abandoned like many other fangames out there.
To give you a small idea how this game will look like: it will be based of the old Jurassic Park Trespasser game. Offcourse with a whole new story, a list of interesting dinosaurs, new puzzles and weapons, an inventory system and so on.
Ever wanted to visit certain places from the movie? Or revisit places from other Jurassic Park games? Well all of that will be in this game.

The story:
At the moment there isn't that much of a story yet but this is what I have for now:
You are on a ship. After all the stories you have heard about the dinosaur islands, you and some friends wanted to take a look near the coast of Isla Sorna, you wanted to take some pictures of the dinosaurs and publish them as you love photography. You see it more as a hobby but if you could make some money by making pictures of dinosaurs... Then why not?
Unfortunatly... It didn't end well... The ship got attacked by something and you are the only survivor, stranded on the coast of Isla Sorna.
Unsure about what just happend, you start your journey through the island...
This isn't a fun little trip anymore, this is a survival mission.

Screenshots:
I will attach some screenshots.
These screenshots are from the first level only which is still in development offcourse.

Development and support:
Offcourse this isn't really a small project and working on it all by myself will take a lot of time.
Want to help out with this project? Well you can!
For this project I am still looking for people who can create some 3d models for in the game, both static models like buildings (think about certain models from movie scenes) and animated models like dinosaurs.
Any level ideas or story ideas are also always welcome!
So if you are interested in supporting this project, feel free to DM me!

I would love to hear opinions on this

I love the idea!

What takes it down visually is the flat lighting. Adding some fog and messing with the ambience a little will already greatly improve this.

Here is a tutorial on basic optimisation.
A tutorial on lighting.

There are a few things I should mention. First: Trespassing already exists as a cry engine project. If you want this to be a bigger release you might want to rename it.

Benge's modelpack 6 pack has a few weapons very similar to the arsenal in the original. (see attached)
Here is a tutorial to get them into GG.

If you want to have the player body as seen in the original, there is a body script available. It would need some work but its a good start.
Here is an example of me using it.

Best luck with the game

As wolf said if you're going to release it, even for free you want to avoid naming or referencingredients existing IP's, and Jurassic Park is a big existing IP.

With regards to the body script, it still works but is a little broken at the moment, in one of the updates that changed the player camera something broke the script and it now clips through the body really badly, dvader gave up trying to fix it. So maybe one of the script masters on here might need to take a look to fix it.

Yeah it's going to be a fan game so I think I won't get in trouble for using Jurassic Park stuff, have to check all their copyright stuff but as there have been more fan games out there I don't think it will be an issue as long as I don't make any profit out of it.
I am looking for a good title for the game tho.

Thanks for the info about the script, I couldn't get it to work so I hope someone can fix it and help me with attaching another model to it because I want to use like a 'regular guy' model and not a soldier model xD

Updated Screenshots of the first (test) level with tweaked settings and some screenshots with the shader mod.
Which one do you prefer?

I tried out that body script and it still works ok, at least my version of it does.



I'm going to play with this some more to see if I can get the animations working better.


The standard animations leave a lot to be desired, this would probably look a lot better with a custom model.

I've attached my version.
Been there, done that, got all the T-Shirts!
