Seeing Frontier Inc working on this game kinda give me the hope but I wouldn't get my expectation high until I see gameplay video first. I should be in for the ride.

It made me happy to see the resurgence of builder genre for console such as Cities Skylines, MARS, and Jurassic World Evolution.

I feel the start of a dinosaur resurgence. Hype!

I also kickstarted Dinosaur Island (board game), which is pretty much Jurassic Park the board game, so I'm obviously a fan of the theme. :p

It was developed by a now defunct developer and published by Konami and Universal Interactive.

Safe to say there's a lot of licensing bullshit preventing that from happening.
What also sucks is that the PC version had a certain kind of DRM that Windows 10 freaks out at, so you can't run it on Win 10.

Had to play it on an old laptop when I went back and finally 100%ed the game recently.

I'm excited for this as Operation Gensis was a great game, and out of all the devs i can think of Frontier are one of the better choices for a Tycoon game, but at the same time it being Frontier that is making it sort of lowers my expectations because of Planet Coaster.

Planet coaster is a great game. The sandbox gameplay and building system are both great...but i think that's where the good things about it end, pretty much. The fairly low amount of rides along with how they did the themes (e.g. being limited to specific rides), the lack of things like water physics, the management options being pretty much an afterthought etc are all problems with it that make it a bit hard to be much beyond a sandbox construction game, i think. This is a game that sounds like it'll be fairly heavily reliant on management gameplay, which was the main thing Planet Coaster did not do well from what I've seen.

If this removes all the limitations of Operation Genesis (primarily no. of dinos able to research per park) we're good. PC will probably get to mod it out and add tons of new species, but I'm talking console edition.

Wonder if Frontier will port Planet Coaster to console too after this.

Yeah the one thing I didn't like about Genesis was the weird limitation on materials and Dinos.

Fortunately you could .INI edit all of that on the PC version.
