    Jurassic Park (ジュラシックパーク) for the Sega Mega-CD is a point-and-click adventure game based on the Jurassic Park film. It relies heavily on full motion video.

    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].
