    Jurassic Park (ジュラシックパーク) is a Sega Mega-CD full-motion video graphic adventure game developed by Sega Multimedia Studio and published by Sega. Based on the June 1993 film Jurassic Park, the game was first released in the United States and Europe in December 1993, and was developed in coordination with the film's production team, notably enlisting the help of prominent dinosaur paleontologist Dr. Robert T. Bakker.

    History

    Development

    Sega enlisted the support of Dr. Robert T. Bakker, a prominent paleontologist who advised the production of the Jurassic Park film, for the Mega-CD tie in. He wrote a "field guide" for the seven species of dinosaur featured in the game, and features as part of the production's full motion video segments[11]. To better explain to the designers and animators how dinosaurs likely moved, Bakker dissected a chicken at the Sega Multimedia Studio offices to show how the leg joints operated[12].
