Ludia Breaking Into the Movie Business With Jurassic Park Game

Fans of Jurassic Park will have a social game with a little more bite to play in 2012 thanks to Ludia. The Montreal-based developer has signed a licensing agreement with Universal Studios to create a branded social game based on the classic dinosaur movie franchise.

Players of the game will be able to pick up where billionaire John Hammond left off after the first Jurassic Park movie, and the game will be similar to other zoo and animal collecting titles; players be able to build and customize their own dinosaur park, breeding new types of dinosaurs by discovering new DNA hidden in pieces of amber. However, unlike the doomed park in the film, players will be able to prevent disasters from happening and attract tourists by tapping into their network of Facebook friends.

“This exciting license is our gateway to the movie industry and reinforces our strategy of turning high-profile brands into successful interactive entertainment experiences,” Ludia CEO Alex Thabet says in a statement packaged with the press release announcing the deal.

Ludia is most well known for its branded properties based on popular reality TV and game shows like Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader and Family Feud & Friends. The as-yet unnamed Jurassic Park game will make its debut in early 2012 on mobile platforms and will expand later to social networks.
