New web comics & Film-Canon Mod 1.1!
Date: Wednesday, July 25, 2007 - 13:53 PM (Eastern Time)
Jurassic Park: Revelations. A drama-series about a group of survivors who crash land on Isla Sorna. Created by JPL's resident paleo-artist, T-PEKC, this comic series is a fan-made continuation that is true to the film themes and canons.
And for those who want some comic relief (geddit?!)A humourous comic series created by your's truely, ME and Big Razzie. PARK LIFE!
Park Life is a comic series aimed at poking as much fun at all things JP-related as possible. Nothing is safe on Isla Nublar from the terrifying jaws of satire (And the mind of me and Razzie). You're bound to have a laugh.
Also for launch today is the Film-Canon Mod 1.1 Update for Jurassic Park Operation Genesis. You can download the update here. The team has also launched wallpapers made by T-Rex_Master, which can be found in the Downloads Section.
Jurassic Park 3 Turns Six!
Date: Wednesday, July 18, 2007 - 0:00 AM (Eastern Time)
That's right everybody! Jurassic Park 3 today has turned 6 years old. While not always considered by most fans to be the favorite movie of the franchise, it is still Jurassic Park and we feel it deserves to be honored as such regardless!
Up for the offerings today we have a Dilophosaurus Wallpaper available in the Downloads section in various sizes and something extra special for our users!
The JPL Team has been hard at work on this project for the last year. What are we talking about? The Jurassic Park Film-Canon Skins of course! The JPLegacy JPOG Modification Team have been hard at work to bring you, the fans, the film-accurate skins for the beloved Operation Genesis game. You can visit the section we made specifically for the release of this mod by clicking here. Alternatively, the link can be found directly on the Downloads page (at the bottom!) or on the JPOG Game Information page.
We would like also like to take the opportunity to announce that a drama-series and a comedy-series web-comic (that's two web comics!) will soon be made available here on Jurassic Park Legacy. The Drama-series web-comic otherwise known as Jurassic Park - Revelations deals with a stranded group of air-plane survivors whom have crash landed on the untamed lands of Isla Sorna. Join us in reading this exciting and thrilling comic from the mind of JPL's artist and forum moderator: T-PEKC. We're hoping to incorporate several recurring themes from the films in this comic, look for it - dare I say it - very soon. A drama-filled comic not your thing? Coming from the minds of uber-fan Big Razzie and JPLegacy Co-Webmaster Tyrannosaurus Matt (a deadly and hilarious combination!) comes a comic that will poke fun and put a satirical spin on events from the film with the sole guarantee of making you laugh!
Also be sure to check out the JPLegacy Chat Room too that was put together by our very own Carcharodontosaurus! We will be soon establishing a weekly night fandom chat, at hopefully a reasonable time for all of us!
