So, Jurassic World Evolution. This looks like a park-management sim game, with dinosaurs. Developer is Frontier Developments, which of course does Elite: Dangerous, and to my surprise also did RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.

Reading their forums is hilarious because 1) obsessive discussion of a game that hasn't been released yet, and 2) OMG some people know a lot about dinosaurs.

I might just break my usual rule and buy this one on release.

I still play operation genesis probably once a year so can't wait for this to release.

They only did the Mac version of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. But they went on to develop popular rollercoaster park simulator Planet Coaster, which is their other current game alongside Elite: Dangerous. As an E:D player, it's always weird that the community managers are simultaneously looking after these two totally different types of player communities, and must always appear to love them equally.

Interesting. And yet, I think these communities may overlap. I'd bet there are a lot of people playing E:D because they enjoy the space sim and less because they're into the pew pew. Someone did a poll a while back that showed the E:D crowd to be surprisingly old. (Went looking for the poll but couldn't find it...)

Yeah the E:D crowd has many who once played the original Elite in the 1980s, who always dreamed of a massively multiplayer version, and are now 40+. Cue terms like "Forum Dads" and jokes about players having E:D and ED. I think Jurassic World Evolution might have more crossover appeal than Planet Coaster did.
