ALL-NEW GAME ALLOWS PLAYERS TO CREATE THEIR OWN JURASSIC PARK
LUDIA BRINGS ‘JURASSIC PARK BUILDER’ TO THE APP STORE
MONTREAL, CANADA, JULY 26, 2012 – Dinosaurs once again roam the Earth in an amazing all-new game! Interactive entertainment company Ludia Inc. today announced, in conjunction with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, the launch of the ‘Jurassic Park Builder’ game app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Based on the ground-breaking film franchise, Jurassic Park, users will experience their own interactive journey on the mysterious Isla Nublar.
“I am proud to bring this new social mobile game to fans of the Jurassic Park franchise worldwide,” said Alex Thabet, Founder and CEO of Ludia Inc. “It was a thrilling experience to partner with Universal for the launch of our first mobile exploitation based on a film franchise, and this is one of the biggest movie trilogies of all time.”
Players have the chance to build their own Jurassic Park from the ground up! Park owners will nurture and grow various dinosaur species through the discovery of amber filled with dinosaur DNA. To turn the DNA into an egg, resources will be invested at the Research Center and once ready, eggs will be placed in the park and grow until they reach an adult size. To evolve, dinosaurs have to be fed plants or meat depending on their respective diets. Park managers will have to make sure their park is constantly fueled with enough goods to feed all the dinosaurs by managing the flow of imports at the port.
Players will build roads for their visitors so they can go around and explore the park. To entertain their guests and collect more money, players need to be creative and decorate their parks by building various attractions and structures such as amusement centers, hotels, restaurants, and security offices.
Every day, players will have the option to access the ‘Code Red’ mode, where time management skills will be put up to test. Players will need to act fast to keep dinosaurs from escaping and wreaking havoc on the island.
‘Jurassic Park Builder’ features:
The ‘Jurassic Park Builder’ App is now available for free on the iTunes App Store™ for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, or at www.itunes.com/appstore.

About Jurassic Park
Since Universal Pictures and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment first joined forces to unleash an adventure over 65 million years in the making, Jurassic Park has become the “premier” and “authentic” dinosaur brand the world over. When Jurassic Park was released in 1993, it became an instant phenomenon. In the years that followed, two additional films were released – The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III – bringing the trilogy’s worldwide box office total to more than $2 billion. The franchise continues to resonate with consumers worldwide via consumer products, popular attractions at Universal Studios Theme Parks and annual airings of the three films on a multitude of television networks. The Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy, recently made available on Blu-ray for the first time, showcases all three films in high definition with 7.1 surround sound and hours of new bonus features.
