Welcome to Liam’s Jurassic World! Since 2015 the For The Win Project has been providing children who are disabled, disadvantaged and seriously ill the opportunity to BE their favourite heroes, and 9 year old Liam would like to welcome you to his Kingdom!

Thankfully now in remission, Liam has been battling cancer since he was only 5 years old. The Jurassic movies helped Liam get through many of his tough days battling luekemia, and also inspired him to follow in Dr. Grant’s footsteps and become a Paleontologist!

The For The Win Project has been working with Liam and his family to provide a unique opportunity to star in his own Jurassic World movie trailer and feature on the poster alongside the one and only Raptor Wrangler Owen Grady!

With a photoshoot guided by Chris Pratt himself, Liam’s movie poster was brought to the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom set by For The Win founders Jesse and Jaimie to celebrate the news of Liam being in remission with the cast and crew! The wonderful Bryce Dallas Howard also had a special message for Liam:

With the aid of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, the For The Win team organised an incredible day at Jurassic Park itself in Universal Studios Hollywood! A Jurassic Park Motor Pool Jeep picked Liam up and drove him to the Universal Studios backlot where his movie poster and trailer were unveiled to him.

He even got the chance to tame a rogue Velociraptor at the Raptor Encounter!

The team at For The Win truly created a one-of-a-kind experience for young Liam, a kid that’s been through so much. He is now a movie star in his favourite franchise!

Paleontologist Dr. Jim Kirkland also recorded this video message for Liam:

In the words of the For The Win team, ‘Liam is an inspiration, a warrior, and most importantly, a great kid’, and we want to wish our own thoughts and love to young Liam, who’s already faced some of life’s hardest battles. You are an inspiration, kid!

We also want to highlight the heartwarming work that our friends at the For The Win Project are doing and help spread the word. Kids like Liam have already been dealt a bad hand and it’s people like Jesse, Jaimie and many others who help to brighten their day.

There are unfortunately many other children out there battling cancer and other illnesses so be sure to check out charities like For The Win to see how you can help, and learn more about it all at https://www.cancer.org.

Rescue the Dinosaurs in Epic New VR-Based ‘Jurassic World’ Game Hitting ‘Dave and Busters’ June 14th!

On June 22nd, the Park is gone – but Isla Nublar will live on in a epic new VR based videogame hitting arcades soon!

The new interactive cinematic adventure will hit over 100 ‘Dave and Busters’ locations on June 14th, and will put players into a living and breathing Jurassic World. Taking place before the latest sequel, players will be tasked with capturing the various dinosaurs freely roaming the island prior to its volcanic based extinction. The game is sure to provide all thrills and awe inspiring moments synonymous with Jurassic Park, and we cannot wait to go hands on!

Check out the full press release below:

Universal and The Virtual Reality Company (VRC) today announced Jurassic World VR Expedition, an interactive cinematic virtual reality (VR) game that transports players to the visually stunning jungles of Isla Nublar, where fans will engage in an epic rescue adventure inspired by the Jurassic World film series. Jurassic World VR Expedition makes its debut on June 14 at more than 100 Dave & Buster’s entertainment centers, making it the biggest location-based VR launch to date. The VR game launches ahead of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which arrives in theaters on June 22, 2018.

The VRC development team includes several Academy Award®-winning and -nominated animators, visual effects artists, and technicians. Written and directed by James Lima, a multi-Emmy Award-nominated visual effects artist, and executive produced by VRC co-founders Robert Stromberg, a two-time Academy Award winner®, and entertainment executive Guy Primus, Jurassic World VR Expedition boasts an all-new approach to VR.

Up to four people at a time can put on an HTC VIVE™ headset and enter the Dave & Buster’s state-of-the-art VR motion simulator, where they will be transported into what remains of Jurassic World for a five-minute suspenseful, awe-inspiring expedition. There, they will rescue dinosaurs that were freely roaming Isla Nublar at the end of the last chapter of Jurassic World.

“Jurassic World VR Expedition is the ultimate wish fulfilled,” said Jurassic World VR Expedition Director James Lima. “We wanted to take people to Isla Nublar and visit Jurassic World, and here is where the power of VR presents its potential as a medium that is an extension of the film.”

“What we have done for this project is groundbreaking,” added The Virtual Reality Company Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer Robert Stromberg. “It represents a remarkable departure from the traditional approach to combining VFX and gameplay in VR. To achieve the level of cinematic visual integrity we would like to see in VR, we integrated a variety of filmmaking techniques to help complement established entertainment software approaches.”

Jurassic World VR Expedition is the latest in a strategic expansion by Universal into gaming. Last year, Universal announced a significant build-up of its games team, as well as a more active approach and investment into game development. Jurassic World VR Expedition is the first VR production being released that is part of a bold portfolio of games rolling out in 2018 and beyond.

“For many, this will be their wondrous introduction to VR, and Jurassic World VR Expedition will transport fans in a more immersive way than they could imagine. Players will experience the dinosaurs—both the majestic and terrifying—first person,” said Chris Heatherly, Executive Vice President of Games and Digital Platforms, Universal Brand Development. “We are thrilled with the breathtaking visuals and cinematic experience that VRC has delivered, as well as by Dave & Buster’s bold step to make this experience available to such a broad audience.”

“The exclusive launch of Jurassic World VR Expedition at all Dave & Buster’s locations represents an incredible milestone for us as we aim to be at the forefront of location-based entertainment VR,” said Kevin Bachus, Senior Vice President, Entertainment & Games Strategy, Dave & Buster’s. “Our innovative, top-of-the-line simulators will provide fans with next-level immersion, putting them into Jurassic World for a breathtaking journey alongside the biggest creatures this world has ever known.”

Eager to try the latest Jurassic game installment? It makes its debut at the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Fan Fest June 13th, at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Learn more about the Fan Fest venue here! To try Jurassic World VR Expedition eslewhere, players can find a Dave & Buster’s location in their area or through Vive’s Demo Locator. The game will be rolling out soon to additional location-based VR venues worldwide.

According to Variety, ‘in the coming months, VRC plans to work on refining “Jurassic World VR Expedition” with additional iterations, and also bring it to other locations both in the U.S. and internationally. The ultimate plan is to turn “Jurassic World VR Expedition” into a ride with longevity, said Robert Stromberg. “These types of experiences can last for years.”

This game is not to be mistaken for the cinematic Jurassic World: Blue, a free VR based experience that takes you to Isla Nublar and allows you to view key moments of Blue’s life prior Mount Sibos volcanic eruption. Both episodes of Jurassic World: Blue are available on the Oculus store now and are not to be missed!

An Exclusive Look Inside of Jurassic World: Evolution

Dream it. Build it. Survive it. Do you remember that tagline? It’s quite simple really, and perfectly summarises what a park building game is, and especially what Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis was.

That game was loved – and still is, and fifteen years later we are set to receive the new generation’s version of this game. Jurassic World: Evolution.

A week ago, Alex and myself were lucky enough to visit Frontier Developments in Cambridge and meet with many of the team that are developing this upcoming park-building game. We saw the game in it’s final stages of development and met with various members of the animation team, the creative team, the sound team, who are now putting those crucial final touches on the game.

We also had the opportunity to play the game. And that we did. For a good few hours! We played on the islands of Isla Matanceros and Isla Muerta, two of the Five Deaths island chain that sits near Isla Nublar.

While most of what we were able to play has been previously revealed, the camera mode within the Park Ranger Jeeps is something previously unseen, and I don’t believe the Dilophosaurus attacks on the park visitors has been seen before!

View our full gallery below!

We had a lot of fun at Frontier and we thoroughly enjoyed our time playing Jurassic World: Evolution! Our friends at Jurassic Unicast were also attending and have shared their own content from the day on their channel!

The game is available on Tuesday June 12 and is available on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Don’t miss out – be sure to pre-order your copy now!

Jurassic World Alive App Is Here!

There’s a dinosaur in our backyard…
 

Jurassic World Alive is a new app that is sure to grab every dino lover’s attention. In the app, you are a member of the Dinosaur Protection Group (DPG), and you are on a mission to save the dinosaurs. Much like Pokemon Go, you explore your surroundings in search of dinosaurs. Once you track down a dinosaur, you pilot a drone and collect DNA samples from them. You can create normal dinosaurs, or pretend you’re Henry Wu and make some hybrids! After assembling a team of dinosaurs, you then head over to the battle area and face off against other players. Prizes for winning include (but aren’t limited to): coins, DNA samples, and darts for DNA collecting.

The app is now available for Android on Google Play, and for iOS in the App Store. Start hunting those dinos!

 
As mentioned above, this game is similar to Pokemon Go in a lot of ways. The game uses your location for placement of dinosaurs and supply drops, and it has warnings about being safe while playing (thanks, Owen!). The drone/firing the darts can take a little getting used to, but the controls seem very responsive. All the dinosaurs in the game have profiles that detail their battle stats, which you need to pay attention to once you step into the battle area. They start you out in the Fallen Kingdom arena, and there are different battle arenas that unlock as you win more battles! Battles get more exciting as you level up you dinos (by gathering more DNA), and mixing up your team combinations. Unlike Pokemon Go, supply drops are not always at landmarks, and they appear more frequently in suburban/rural areas.

Jurassic World: Alive also has a fun AR feature, allowing you to bring the dinosaurs you’ve captured to life in the real world via your phones camera. This creates a fun photo and video opportunity many fans are already taking advantage of!
