Game historian, journalist, and content creator Kim Justice joins us to talk about the commercial and critical disappointment, though surprisingly influential, Jurassic Park: Trespasser. In her recent documentary Jurassic Park: Trespasser – A Failure That Stood The Test Of Time | Kim Justice we’re taken through her six part story of its development, its failings, and its lessons learned. While some of those lessons learned include how to hide your non-existent legs with massive breasts, they also include how counting out bullets can be valuable to the player and using one’s entire body to press a button is only accurate physics on paper. Through video game archeology we now have the ability to experience Trespasser for what it was truly meant to be, which in itself is essentially what Jurassic Park is all about.
