Today, Mondo Games revealed brand new information about their upcoming tabletop game Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene.
First announced last November and teased at the Jurassic Park 25th Anniversary Celebration event a couple of months ago, details of the game have been exclusively revealed to Nerdist, who spoke to Mondo Games Creative Director Luke Byers.
The Chaos Gene is a asymmetrical miniatures tabletop game where you take control of a faction in the park – be it InGen personnel, park visitors, dinosaurs – and do whatever it takes to leave in one piece. Luke Byers explains:
“In our approach to Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene, we took many of our favorite elements of a traditional dungeon crawl style board game and spliced them with one of our favorite films of all time. The goal was to create something truly unique and incredibly fun to play.”
This 2-4 player game allows you to choose from one of the four factions, including InGen, park visitors, Velociraptors, or the Queen of the island, Lady Rex.
Each of the factions have their own unique objectives that affect the gameplay for example, InGen want to keep the park running to ensure their investment is safe, the park visitors’ goal is to survive, the Velociraptors have one goal: seek and destroy, and the T. rex is ‘hungry for victory’.
Set on Isla Nublar, the game will feature detailed miniatures of your favorite characters as seen above, with artwork by the talented Matthew Woodson.
