Update: On the request of the development team the above article has been updated as of 8/19/2020 to clarify that this mod isn't truly standalone but requires Source SDK 2013.
Original Story: Team Butane, the developer of Jurassic Life--which up until now has been a Half-Life 2 mod that has over a decade in development--will release as a mod that will only require Source SDK 2013 to be downloaded and installed.
In Jurassic Life, players are game warden Robert Muldoon, who has been hired to maintain order in Jurassic Park. While the mod is not based on the movies, they are a different take on it. Jurassic Life will apparently "proceed in a relatively linear but intense way", with the story taking place with an initial tour of the park for InGen investers going awry as tropical storm casts the island into darkness.
A voice cast was also announced for Jurassic Life, which is listed below:
MAIN VOICE CAST
- NeroScott as Robert Muldoon
- Gary Scales as Ray Arnold
- CaptainGeorgeVA as John Parker Hammond
- DisruptiveGoat (J. Hart) as Gerry Harding

- Spenser Mehew as Dennis Nedry
- Millie VA as JP Employee
- CrunchySoap as JP Employee
- XPortiusX as JP Employee

For those that are still interested in potentially lending their voices to the project, be sure to check out the developer's Casting Call page, where six roles are still open. However, if you're interested in landing a role you'll have to do so by June 26, which is the deadline.
What do you think of this news? Are you interested in trying out the mod? Did you ever watch the movies or read the book? Do you think this mod will do the movies justice? Do you think Jurassic Life transitioning to Source SDK will increase the odds of the title being DMCA'd? Let us know in the comments!
